This week, Schepperle and Clanton will check in periodically from Rancho Mirage to share their experience at one of the LPGA's major championships.

I hit balls a few places down from Michele Wie on the driving range. Then I played with the greatest player I have ever seen, plus she is one of my best friends (Candace Schepperle). Candace and I played 18 holes today and it was an easy and stress-less day. The golf course is in really good shape and it is really green, which is nice to see.
The greens aren't too fast yet but I am sure by the weekend they will be rolling. Overall, the day was good. I am glad to be here and cannot wait for the tournament to start!

It has been pretty much golf and school work since then! We played a practice round together on Monday and I slept pretty hard that night.
Since the tournament is a very sponsor-orientated event, they have a large pro-am on Tuesday and Wednesday. For everyone else to play the course they have to tee off before the tournament. So, Cydney and I decided to play the back nine at 8 a.m. this morning.
We played with my friends Jessica Korda and Alexis Thompson, who are also playing here on sponsors' exemptions. They are both in their teens so Cydney and I definitely felt old!
I decided to keep my practice and preparation pretty light today so I could be well rested for the entire week and so I could finish all my homework. It has been a great experience so far and I cannot wait to get the tournament started.
