Golf will always hold a soft spot in my heart, more than any other sport out there. Golf was my Dad's favorite sport, and some of my favorite memories the two of us shared happened on the golf course. I was a die hard, year-round basketball player, but I know he always wished that I had made golf my number one focus. I was pretty good considering I never practiced and would only go out and play with him every few months. 

When you're a little girl, it is very hard to remain focused for 18 holes of golf. One time, at Band Camp Disney World, we were playing golf and a rogue golf club (PSA: People get mad during golf and throw things) smacked me upside the head as I was doing cartwheels in the fairway. Obviously the guy who threw his club was in the wrong there, but maybe don't take a 9 year old obsessed with gymnastics to play 18 holes of golf in Disney World. 

As I've grown older -- and am no longer physically able to do cartwheels -- I've really started to enjoy both playing and watching golf. When I play golf and do well, I know my Dad is up there watching, starting a slow clap after a good chip shot. I picture him giving me a big, excited thumbs up from across the green when I take my time, line up a putt... then sink it. 

June 2nd will mark 10 years since I lost my Dad, and I've already asked CB if we could go golfing after work that day in his honor. I have no doubt that would be what he would want. 

Well, he'd also want Pat Summitt and the Lady Vols to win a National Championship, but seeing as Pat Summitt no longer coaches and UCONN doesn't know how to properly share National Championships with other teams, I think we'll settle on playing golf. 

If you haven't been keeping up with the PGA Tour as of late, you're missing some of the best golfers to ever play the game. Unfortunately, as you know, our household generally has to DVR the PGA Tour, but not next weekend! 

I'm really pumped because my Mom is coming in town and we are going to be able to watch it live and in person right here in Dallas at the AT&T Byron Nelson Tournament! Some of my favorite players have committed, like Dallas local legend Jordan Spieth, my favorite player of all time Sergio Garcia and one of CB's favorites Dustin Johnson.

I have TWO SINGLE DAY PASSES to give away!!!!! 

If you want to spend a day at the AT&T Byron Nelson Tournament watching some of the best to ever play the sport... just enter below! 

I'll be picking the winner first thing Monday morning!
