The Frenchies in the USA

The second week was a little different than the first. We went to Miami for a Professional golf tournament, the Honda classic to see the best player in the world, Rory Mcilroy the number one and also to watch many other players. These professional players are inspiration for me and my friends because they know all you need to know to play great golf.
We saw the practice round and the first tournament round. During the practice round the players are very sociable and relaxed thus we can talk with them, we took pictures with them together, we got autographs from our favorite players. For me that was Rickie Fowler and Ernie Els, the new and old genration.

But we didn't only see golf, we played it. We played two wonderfull golf courses, the first one was in Melbourne (Florida), Suntree golf club, a private golf club which we played thanks to our coach who knows the pro of the club (he played with him many years ago on the PGA tour).

 The second and the last course we played in Miami was Atlantis country club. This one we played with old friends of my coach. This course was difficult because of the wind. After the course we had a barbecue at the house of one friend of our coach Mike.

Thursday was the last day in Miami, we went to see the round 1 of the Honda Golf Classic. We represented France by carrying the french flag during the day. We encouraged our favorite players, we screamed for great shots, we ran after our players and we had a very good day.

The end of the second week was more relaxed, we played three courses, Victoria Hills, Rio Pinar and New Smyrna beach. When we played the second course (Rio Pinar) a heavy rain storm poured down on us, we were dead after the course.
