Just Golfing Around (Aug. 21, 2009)

Hi, this is Mike Ballo Jr. from the men's golf team.

I'm out in Tulsa, Oklahoma, right now for the U.S. Amateur (Aug. 24-30).  I had totally forgotten how tiring nine hours of traveling is.  Southern Hills Country Club is absolutely beautiful -- a golf course as pristine as I have ever seen before.  Today was strictly a travel day. I didn't get to play any golf, but when I got here I went over to the course to get a peek. I was in awe.

I'm really excited to begin this experience.  I have had a lot of summer success with winning a few tournaments and playing really well.  I hope to keep it all going here in Tulsa.   I have a lot of support coming out here. There are a lot of friends and family cheering me on from back at home.  I can't wait to enjoy the next few days playing golf out here.

My St. John's teammates back home are all excited for me as well.  Mark Costanza, Evan Beirne, Dan Mollicone, Peter Ballo and Jeremy Quinn are all getting ready for this upcoming season starting in September.  We are all ready to get the season going and show everyone how good we can really be as a team.

Tomorrow I'm going to be getting up early to go over, check in and get a full day of practice in. So I'll have a lot more to discuss tomorrow. Right now I really just want to sleep!

P.S. The Outback special in Tulsa, Oklahoma: second to none.
