Aramco Saudi Ladies International- March 2022
After a few weeks at home it was time to get back on the road and this week was Saudi Arabia and the Aramco Saudi Ladies International at Royal Greens, a course and country I’d never been to.
As I sit here in the airport it is a time to reflect on the week and there was good and bad, an opening 77 was certainly not what I wanted. No matter how difficult the conditions were, I managed to regroup a little and shot one of the best afternoon rounds on day 2 with a 70 which moved me right up the leaderboard. Day 3 sadly followed the trend of the first day and I fought my way round in 76, so-called moving day was a backward move and this is when things get frustrating. However, the final day saw an improved performance, despite not playing my best I shot 69 to move up to a final position of 27th.
I know I can play better than this and I’m looking forward to the next two weeks in South Africa, if we can get out of Saudi that is as there has been air strikes from Yemen nearby so our flight is delayed which means we will miss our connection in Qatar. Hopefully things settle down and we can get to South Africa on Monday.
Finally, I’m really pleased to announce that I have formed a partnership for 2022 with Hadlow Edwards Wealth Management who will have their logo on my clothing. I’d love to chat about them with any members when I’m home. This partnership coupled with the generous donations that continue to come in from members is relieving some of the pressure and allowing me to focus on my golf. So, thank you all so much.
Till next week, happy golfing!

Well played Rachel! I followed your progress and I think you improved from Kenya with 2 subpar rounds and a better total in difficult conditions with tougher competition. Keep it up!
