After spending four days closely following the LPGA at the Wendy’s Championship, I promised in this post to set out some reflections on the LPGA Tour and ESPN’s coverage. Here goes: 1. The future for the LPGA is bright primarily because of a developing Big 5 of American women’s golf (listed here in alphabetical order): […]

It’s the end of August, and you know what that means. It’s your final chance to enter the Question of the Month contest. The winner gets a 5 pound note from Scotland commemorating Jack Nicklaus (this one came straight from the British Open at St. Andrews). Go here for the Question, and stay tuned for […]

The reaction to my (crazy?) idea for promoting the LPGA by giving a sponsor’s exemption to a man has been less than enthusiastic. Indeed, such a gambit would be a risky stunt, and I am pretty sure the LPGA would never seriously consider it. But, way back when this blog got started, I floated in […]

If you missed the Wendy’s Championship for Children, you missed a really great tourney. The back nine on Sunday produced high drama, with Annika Sorenstam posting -17 with a final round 66 and sitting as the leader in the clubhouse. 19 year old Paula Creamer, sporting her “pretty in pink” outfit, made a valiant last-ditch […]



A (crazy?) idea for LPGA promotion

One of my many reactions to closely following the LPGA this week — besides a basic awe for how good the women pros are from 120 yards in — is that the LPGA needs to figure out better ways promote itself and its golfers. Women’s golf should be at least as big as women’s tennis, […]

1. Cristie Kerr, 2 time winner this year and Solheim points leader, when asked if she’s staked a claim to be the No. 1 American player: “Well, I can tell you my mom probably thinks that, and my dad. I’m just trying to do the best I can. That’s up to you. That’s not up […]
