Things I learned in Asia for two weeks…………

 

-I didn’t know how much I loved Mexican food and rice

 

– Hyatt Hotels are a welcome sight, especially the one with a casino in the lobby

 

– Never ever land on the other side of the world at 4 A.M. You will literally sleep all day

 

– Breakfast will always be the best meal of the day

 

– Dear Dr. Pepper, any thoughts of expansion anytime soon? Baggage charges are getting out of hand 

 

– Hall of Famers like it when you say hello to them

 

– South Korea and Malaysia are not close at all. About six hours in the air. If you are in the air that long in the U.S. you better be on your way to Hawaii

 

– I started out frustrated that I couldn’t watch my Rangers each morning, and then realized if they weren’t playing at all I would have nothing to look forward to each day. Football included!!!

 

– American sports are on the bottom of the priority list in Korea, the television stations switch to their local news at 7 A.M. regardless of the inning or quarter

 

– Eggs are the same everywhere in the world

 

– I’m a morning person on the other side of the world. I sleep better, longer, and at the correct times. 9 P.M. to 7 A.M. was no problem

 

– Golf truly is a global game

 

– I felt like the Red Sox at one point. A passing fan said, “Angela, we see you on TV and now in person.” Ok Ok Ok , Mike Whan I get it 

 

– That only happened once so maybe the Red Sox example was bold of me

 

– American fast food taste pretty good in the airports, or maybe I’m just desperate at that point

 

– Jet lag is a real thing

 

– If the swing is a little off, put a band aid on it and get it done. I don’t think this conversation would go over well……”Mr. Wright, can you jump on a quick flight to Malaysia?”

 

– I never knew what day it was. I left my phone on Texas time so I knew when to call home

 

– The new American Airlines Admirals Club in Tokyo is really nice and worth every penny when stranded for eight hours

 

– There is no fast way home from Malaysia

 

I’m excited to be home to get some rest and work on my game! Looking forward to the last two events of the year and then it’s off to Colorado for some off season skiing!

 

Until Next Time,

Angela’s Blog – October 2011

Hello again from 35,000 feet. On my way to LAX for the Asia swing on our schedule. Should be an interesting afternoon considering I land at 12:45 and my connection is at 1:10. Ahhhhhh, the joys of traveling. Honestly, I’m doing ok either way. I would love to spend the day watching football and baseball instead!

There are only six events left this season and I’m playing in five of them. Korea, Malaysia, Taiwan, Mexico, and Orlando. It’s been a very long year and it’s hard to believe we are close to the end. September was a very busy month. It started with my event, the “Let Your Light Shine” charity golf tournament. We had a great night and raised over $80,000 for The Angela Stanford Foundation. I’m excited about the opportunities the Foundation will have next year and the first group of scholarships we will provide.

Then it was off to Arkansas and one of my favorite weeks of the year. I stayed with great friends and my family and friends were able to drive up. The Arkansas event is one of the best on our schedule. On to Alabama and the last week before Solheim Cup! I don’t get to fly private very often, but I did to Alabama. A first for my caddy and always a thrill for me. I had a really great final round and finished third going into Solheim.

The Solheim Cup is my favorite event we get to play. I love the team atmosphere! I love getting to pull for the ladies I spend every other week trying to beat. There are so many great American players right now and it was an honor to call them teammates for the week. Granted, the outcome wasn’t what we wanted, it was still a great week. My family and friends had a wonderful time and having them there made the week special. Maybe I’m getting older but I’m starting to appreciate how lucky I am to play for my country. There is absolutely nothing in the world better than putting on red, white, and blue and playing for something larger than yourself. I wish I could have played better. Losing will just push me to get better and be ready for 2013.

So…….I’m on my way to Asia for three weeks. That is unless my Rangers go all the way

Thanks for all of your support out there and GO RANGERS!!!!
