Lejan Lewthwaite is excited to play in the Sanya Ladies Open, Yalong Bay Golf Club – Sanya China. After completing her practice round, she feels that she has settled in nicely with her training routine and adaptation to her new environment.
Lejan sent us a message from her hotel this morning saying: ” The place is amazing…so beautiful. It’s set right in the heart of a bunch of top resorts such as The Marriott Hotel (where I am staying), the MGM Grand, The Ritz Carlton and the Sheraton. ” She continues: ” There are a number of interesting holes on the course, one and two tricky and the par fives are playing long. All except one which was reachable in two for me today, but that can change with the wind directions constantly changing.”
Lastly she highlights: “There are a few of us here from South Africa viz; Ashleigh Simon, Nicole Garcia ( who I am sharing a room with) and Connie Chen.This is all new for me and I am still finding my feet with the rest of the tour players. The top seeded players, XI YU LIN, YAN-HONG PAN, TZU-CHI LIN all from China and the fourth seeded SO-YOUNG JANG from Korea will be starting.
My current seeding for this tournament is 54th and I am eagerly awaiting for my TEE OFF so I can formally introduce myself to the LPGA and the world of women’s professional golf.”
My mantra for the week: ” FOLLOW THROUGH LEJAN”
