Course Reporters: Kia Classic – Day 1, Part 1

Day 1, Wednesday 23rd
LPGA Kia Classic Media Day

Today was such a fun day!! The day began with meeting up with Allie then she took us to the media tent. Everyone was so nice there! Our first interview was with Carlota Ciganda. She is truly so kind and she is so funny! After meeting the amazing Carlota we went up to watch a press conference with Lydia Ko which was a sight to see. I think one of the most fun things we did all day was going to the photo shoot at the hotel. We met several new people and it was so much fun watching the players pose for their pictures. They had to look fierce but also look kind. It was definitely as much fun for the players to take the pictures as much as it was for us to watch.

At the photo shoot we met Jessica Korda, Maria McBride and her daughter, Emily, Lexi Thompson, Danielle Kang, and we saw Inbee Park but did not get a chance to talk to her. Jessica Korda was a blast to talk to and one of the most influential from today. Jessica is so adorable!!! When we interviewed Lexi we got to go to the makeup room which was super interesting. Lexi is so pretty! Lexi’s caddie is also so awesome! We also got to take a selfie with her while were waiting for the car to go back to the course.

While we were walking to the golf channel truck, on hole 16, we ran into Cheyenne Woods who is soooooooo beautiful and so nice! She said to be a professional golfer was her dream ever since she was little and she is here now. That is dedication. Once we got to the booth Greg Thorne showed us around and we got to sit at the desk and our names were put on the TV under the camera!

While we were sitting at the desk and playing with the camera the LPGA photographer Gabe Roux was taking pictures of us. We then interviewed Gabe outside the truck which was one of our most important interviews of the day. On the way back we met Paula Creamer!!!!!!!!!!! We asked if her dog Studley goes everywhere with her, and he does! He also loves her caddie. Today was an amazing day and one of my top days!!
