Winning (or Almost) Well

Winning – Will It Be Karrie Webb or Lydia Ko Or Not Ko Gets It Another Australian Women’s Open has come and gone. I’m always interested in how Karrie Webb is going to do, and as usual, she was right up there. I can almost count on Lydia Ko making her presence known as well …

Kerr Takes Finale

Kerr Victor at CME Group Tour Championship I’m still getting used to the kind of money that’s getting thrown around these days on the various golf tours, and even though I know that the LPGA is running behind the deep treasure chests of the PGA, it’s still eye-popping to see how the winners and almost …

New Leaders in Malaysia

Take a look on any given Thursday, and you’ll see a group of LPGA stars take over the top spot as first round leaders, with the occasional appearance of a new kid on the block. Check in on Friday, and some of them might still be there. Do the same on a Saturday, and it …

Comparing Lydia Ko

Lydia Ko Not Quite Like Anyone Else All right, so Super-Kid did it again. She’s just turned 18, and won the Evian Championship going away. She did it with rounds of 69 – 69 – 67 – 63. Even without the big finish, in which she didn’t miss any greens in most peoples’ memories, barely …

Ko Can’t Play Solheim – She’s Really Canadian We all might as well start telling it like it is, and Lydia Ko might as well fess up and stop with the deception. The New Zealander thing is pure camouflage – she’s Canadian, and everyone knows it. I wouldn’t be surprised if her real name isn’t …

Open Finale Set for Drama

Who Will Provide the Drama at the Open Mother Nature Might Cause Trouble It may all look like an orderly Women’s British Open this year, especially compared to the chaos that befell the men earlier in the month, but watch out. There’s something afoot, Mother Nature to start with, and some scary good golfers that …

Interesting Day at Open

Women’s Open Off and Running on Unusual Day The Women’s British Open will have to go a little ways to match the quirkiness and unpredictable turns of events that the men’s version offered, but they’ve made a good start. In terms of golf and predicting a winner, don’t even bother with it until sometime around …

Number One in Arkansas

Much at Stake at the Arkansas Walmart If, by chance, you are not a fan of Inbee Park, you might be in for a long, long year. She was already doing well, then I read this morning that she has “found” her swing. If I played like that, I’d want to keep it lost, but …

Golf Too Young To Die

A Plethora of Young Golf Stars Youth Movement Alive and Well Amidst a flurry of phrases that I swore never to use, such as “Back in my day” and “When I was Your Age,” I worried when people began to suggest that golf was on the wane, and might disappear from the pantheon of recreation …
