Rainy Start to the SEC Championships

Ole Miss women's golf sports information director, Jessica Poole will be blogging for the women's golf team throughout the 2014 SEC Championships held at Greystone Golf Course in Birmingham, Ala.

Well, looks like I'm cursed (At least I am not a British man, sorry Lynnette) We've got rain here in Birmingham, go figure. The last time I traveled with this crew, we had an ENTIRE round cancelled in Knoxville and today we had a one hour rain delay and now we've had today's round cancelled. It's definitely me (Sorry coaches!)

In my time at the course today, I have noticed that golfers have some really interesting ways to pass time. Aside from the usual playing with your phone and listening to music, doing homework, there are also teams that play cards. Texas A&M and South Carolina were having intense card games, while our team just enjoyed our time together. Lots of laughs had by allJ and many many things for our quote board!

Despite the rain, we did have a few fans, our administrator Lynnette Johnson made the trip to cheer us on and we even had an alum out on the course during our practice round, John Todd (Class of '64). We have some of the best fans ever. You can count on a Rebel sighting wherever we go!  

Ok so back to the rain ....

We decided at 12:45 p.m. that we were going to play.  (Yay). So we had a rain soaked day on the golf course. We battled not only the course, but the wind and the rain and the darkness and we came out #RebelStrong.

As usual, the best part of the day was dinner. We had a lovely meal in the private room at Greystone's Legacy Course (Shout out to Brett for hooking that up). During this meal, we talked about many, many things but the best was talking about what each golfer would have as a walk up song if we did that sort of thing in golf.

Coach Drinkard's was the best. It's an Elton John song and if you know Coach Drinkard you know what this song isJ

There were lots of laughs as usual at dinner tonight and I'll leave you with this little gem.

"T-W-O by T-W-O by T-W-O" you'll have to ask Taelor Rubin about that one.

We're back at it tomorrow at 10 a.m. Make sure to follow along on Golfstat and on @OleMissWGolf on Twitter throughout the weekend.

 Hotty Toddy,

 Jess Poole (Official SEC Championship Blogger of Ole Miss WGolf)

    Boy, I surely hope the Rebels don't have anymore nail biters like the Bama game. My nerves won't take it.

    I am not and never have been an Ole Miss fan. I am however a Coach Freeze fan. I like what he represents in today's world of big time sports and what he stands for in leading young men of today into a more responsible role. He is everything that Ole Miss has never had. I am on his band wagon winning or losing.
