On Easter Sunday, like most kids my age (nine), I went on an egg hunt. Then I spent the rest of the day in Sacramento watching my mom (Juli) win the Longs Drugs Challenge. Mom has won a lot of tournaments, many before I was born, but this was the first time I was there when she won one. I got to run out on the green and give her a hug. It was neat.
I was surprised that Mom didn't do a dance. Last year I was at the Solheim Cup when she did a dance after making an eagle putt on the 15th hole. It was silly. Mom likes dancing, even though she isn't very good at it. My sister, Cori, who's five, and I have been trying to help her.
I like that my mom plays golf for a living because we get to go to lots of cool places. Last year I went to about 12 tournaments. My favorite place was Las Vegas, where the Tour Championship was held. I'm not old enough to gamble, but we got to go to fun places like Circus Circus, Treasure Island and New York-New York. I hope Mom plays well enough this year so we can go back.
When we aren't traveling, I enjoy playing sports. My dad is teaching Cori and me how to play golf. Last winter Mom coached my basketball team. All of my friends wanted to play on our team because she's fun. She taught us a lot about passing and defense. I like sports but don't want to be a pro athlete. I think Cori will be one, though, because she's a tomboy like Mom. My mom loves sports. She's always watching sports on TV. Her favorite show is SportsCenter.
When I'm at home in Los Altos, Calif., I enjoy playing with my dogs, Sandy and Tyler. I want to be a dog trainer when I grow up. That way I won't have to sign autographs at dinner and in airports, like Mom does. I don't know why people ask her for her autograph. It's just my mom.
