Welcome to Louise Friberg
I live in Scottsdale, Arizona. It is the Mecca of Golf! There are golfers everywhere and plenty of good golf courses to choose from. I am a member at Moon Valley Country Club, where Annika shot her 59 a few years back!
I am lucky to have some family in town, my sister and her husband as well as their son, Max, who is now as I am writing this 21 months old and as cute as can be!
As always, I enjoy reading your comments so please stop by my guest book and tell me what you enjoy reading or maybe tell me about your best LPGA memory!
I hope to see you all out there!

I realized that I love tournament-golf way too much to be away from it. After two years of coaching I am now back in the drivers seat. At the moment I am in Phoenix practicing to get ready for the LPGA Qualifying School final stage, which is held in Daytona at the LPGA International from Dec 4.9.
My recipe for making the qschool:
1 cup of Patience
1.5 cups of Preparation
2 cups of hard work
a pinch of Luck
a pinch of Belief
My game feels great. I hit the ball better than I ever have. My understanding of the game is better. My love for the game is deeper than ever. I respect the game. I don’t take golf for granted. Good golf has to be earned, it is not given to you.
What I have learned from years of playing tournaments:
1.Follow your plan.
2.Have balance in life.
3.Don’t take anything for granted.
3.Let the team you have around you help you. It is not bad to ask for help.
4.You are who you are, not what you do for work.
5.Have fun while doing it!
And to all of you out there chasing your dream just remember…
…and don’t let anyone tell you different…

What a wonderful day it was today!!! I was helping out at an event called The Winter Swing, which was played at Arizona Country Club here in Phoenix. The charity that was benefiting from this event this year was, of course Gabriel’s Angels. As many of you know, I have been very involved in this charity organization that just does wonders for neglected and at risk children thru theraphy dogs.
My mission today was to hit drives on a hole for the groups, I hit many many drives today! Wow I am beat:) It was great fun as I got to meet many fun people. Golf is truly such a wonderful sport to connect with people.
Then, there was a putting competition where the winner would win a trip to Germany, and to the Mercedes factory. Myself as well as Pam Wright were helpers in that event, and it was great to see the winner be a Scottish person! Lol…he has had his fair share of Europe trips:) We wish him safe travels, good beer, and lots of fun!!
This week is going to be busy…tomorrow working on my project that is launching Jan 15th called Correlation Golf (more information to come..for now…just a teaser). Wednesday will be spent at a seminar from 10a-2p to then in the evening go to the Swedish American Chamber of Commerce annual dinner event. Last year it was great food and good company, hoping and thinking it will be the same this year! Thursday I will play golf myself!! There is an event put on by the LPGA for current and potential sponsors of the LPGA tournament in March, the RR Donnelly Founders Cup. Scramble format. Should be fun. The last two rounds I have played I actually shot under par ronds with the last one on Friday, so I can still poke it out there pretty good I think:)
I am very excited about Sunday as I will babysit my precious nephew Max. Yay. I vote for movienight and some candy while watching.
Now I am getting ready for some dinner preparation…on the menu tonight: Swedish meatballs (Yes leftovers from the Swedish christmas lunch on Sunday).

I have been back to Arizona for about one month now and I am loving the warm weather! After a summer in Sweden, that by the way was the coldest one in 150 years…I have to say that I was longing to some sun and warm. A few afternoons have been spent by the pool:)
So far Travis and I have been in both New Mexico as well as Mexico for meetings, dinners and wedding. Fun times. Tomorrow we are heading over to Palm Springs for a few days for some golf, meetings and great times with friends.
I am working away on some new business ventures, that I will write about here shortly:) Very exciting stuff!!!
Hope you are all having a cozy fall in Sweden and wherever you might be in the world.

First of all, I would like to apologize for not updating more frequently on this site. My life is filled with so many new and different things and it is really exciting. The difference now versus when I played on tour is that my life is no longer out for many people to follow…not sure if this makes sense or not but when you are on tour or a public figure of any sort…there are much of your life that is made public. Nowadays, when I live a fairly still life teaching golf, I actually enjoy that not many people know about my daily routine. … read all »
