So much for the young guns on the LPGA

After Paula Creamer’s amazing rookie season last year, not to mention Michelle Wie and Morgan Pressel turning pro and Natalie Gulbis ready for a breakout year, I was sure that the LPGA storyline this season would be about the next generation becoming the now generation. But another women’s major was completed this morning with another member of the “old guard” claiming the title (details here). And this time around, none of the youngsters were even in the hunt.

We have had big debates about Wie and Creamer and Pressel and Gulbis on this blog, but I think the big story is not really how each one is doing but rather how little they have impacted ladies golf this year. And I cannot help but wonder if this year is just a small down turn before this group moves on to dominate the LPGA for years to come, or if instead we are all caught up in a bit too much hype.
