Wendy’s: mulligan’s morning shots

Play has begun on a beautiful day in Dublin, Ohio. As you’ll see on the LPGA’s leaderboard, at the noon hour, glam girl Natalie Gulbis is tied for second at -4 behind Kris Tschetter, who is leading at -5. We’ll have a full report after the round. Here are some random thoughts:

1. Ever heard of plastic? Each group gets a young girl or two to carry around the sign indicating the scores of the players in the group. The girls can’t be more than 12 or 13 years of age, but they have to lug around a heavy metal sign. With all the high tech in golf, how can we let these young girls labor around the course with metal signs that must weigh ten pounds?

2. Ai Miyazato = Tiger Woods of Japan? LPGA rookie Ai Miyazato commands a huge following from the Japanese press. It’s quite amazing. No other golfer has that many media following her. She must be as big as Tiger Woods in Japan. The reporters in the media tent must be one third, if not more, from Japan.

3. Natalie, the most popular: The last time Natalie Gulbis was in Ohio, she almost won her first LPGA tournament (losing in a playoff at the Jamie Farr). It was amazing to see today that, of all the groups on the course, Natalie’s appeared to have the largest following — even more than Paula Creamer and Cristie Kerr’s power group.
