Ole Miss women's golf SID Jessica Poole is serving as a guest blogger for this weekend's trip to the Mercedes-Benz Championship.

Road trips are a part of life if you're a student-athlete. In fact, most seasons are like one big road trip with a few home matches or tournaments sprinkled in, but if you're a support staffer, say an SID, as I am, road trips take on a different meaning.

I'm new to the Ole Miss family, I've been on the job exactly 49 days so any road trip is going to be a fun new adventure to me, so when the women's golf team invited me to tag along with them this week to Knoxville, I was all in! First of all, I'm a closet golf fanatic. I'm talking, I love watching the Golf Channel and I want to be on the show the Big Break but my golf skills are not quite up to par (no pun intended :) So getting to golf through them, because they actually know what they are doing has been so much fun.

For me, the best part about this trip has been getting to know everyone in a way that is not achieved in my once a month trips to practice or a team photo shoot. This group has welcomed me with open arms and even let me get in on the Sock It To Cancer fun socks in support of coach Kim Evans. We shared lots of laughs today and I know the rest of the weekend will be the same!

You also learn a lot about teams on road trips especially from the music and this team has music selection down to a science. We've listened to Queen, Will Smith, The Fray and Chris Brown to name a few - all good tunes which resulted in lots of singing!

Another observation that I've made is that this team is family. Out on the course they have each other's backs, they share in each other's joys and are battling together to improve each and every hole, every time out. It's really awesome to be a part of!

They'll be battling together at the Mercedes-Benz Championship this weekend, so make sure to follow along on GolfStat and also on Twitter @OleMissWGolf. I tell ya, something special is brewing with this teamJ

1 Heart, 1 Goal
