Rachel Bailey Plays 9 Holes with Greg from Tattoo Golf
I had the pleasure to meet Australian golf pro Rachel Bailey last week for lunch and 9 holes at Chevy Chase. Rachel is a fully exempt, status A-1 player on the Duramed Futures tour this year and if her play the other day is any indication, she could very well be on her way to the ladies big show in the not-so-distant future! Shooting 2 under through 9 holes on a quirky course that she'd never set foot on is quite an accomplishment. Every shot was pure & the only slip up I saw was a chip shot that landed short but she got up & down for par so no harm done. These damn wood chips at my club are something she's probably never faced or will have to face on the manicured courses she'll be playing on so I'm thinking she very well could have gone 3 under if not for that shot! Her friend Lai eagled the hardest hole on the course by flying her approach in for a 2 from about 130 out. She was also hitting off dirt under a tree well so a remarkable shot all around. Lai is also fully exempt this year & I have apologize for not knowing her last name!!
Rachel will be sporting Tattoo Golf gear for the 2009 season so keep an eye out for her this year. We'll be posting her results as she moves throught the season as well.
