Lorena Ochoa

Lorena Ochoa’s Extraordinary Invitational Lorena Ochoa was one of the last week-in and week-out dominant players on the LPGA Tour, Mexico’s own answer to Annika Sorenstam, if you will. What she did after retiring from the Tour is equally remarkable. Opting for family, she opened her heart, invitational tournament, and foundation to underprivileged children. Now …

Jessica Korda in China

  Jessica Korda and China a Good Match     The Chinese, as all golf devotees know, are getting into the tournament business, and they’re not just rushing in without knowing what they’re doing. They’re always like that – never going on to the international stage without doing their homework perfectly. That sense of perfection …

Reports of Golf’s Demise Greatly Exaggerated

Popularity of Golf Always Up and Down I have a rather snobby friend who, among other habits, such as being a physicist, is a tennis devotee, and generally scorns the game of golf. He’s had even more fun than usual lately by telling me that golf is in a state of decline, and will probably …

Ready for Sunday at Royal Birkdale

Almost Everyone Who Should Be Here  is Here I watched the first round of the Ricoh Women’s British Open with interest, but not with too much anxiety. The first round seems to be the time in which eager, new players shine and make a play for the lead, or at least a top spot. By …

Women’s US Open – What’s Up With Stephanie Meadow?

Third Place at US Women’s Open Quite a Story It’s not as if Michelle Wie’s victory wasn’t spectacular enough. Her victory train has arrived, and she has embarked upon the second and more sensational phase of her career. When she finally got off the 18th green, there was some sense of “Whew! I guess I …

Wie Impressive at Midpoint of Women’s US Open

Can Wie Finally Win Big? It’s awfully tempting to get ahead of ourselves when we see one player take charge the way Michelle Wie did in the US Women’s Open on Friday. We saw it last week, on the same course with Martin Kaymer, and perhaps we’ll see a repeat. Getting ahead of ourselves, however, …

LPGA Women’s US Open – Veterans Taking Charge

Nature’s Order is Restored After Round 1 Following the early part of the Women’s US Open’s first round this morning, I was shocked at all the new names attacking the top of the board. The only name that didn’t shock me, of course, was Stacy Lewis, who seems to have brought her game to just …

O Canada! LPGA Finally Heads North

Manulife Financial LPGA Classic This Week All right, we’ve done the palm trees of the Bahamas, the waters of the Hawaiian Islands, and the green painted landscape of desert courses in the American Southwest. This week, however, is one of my favorite in the golf season, because the courses start to look a little more …

Pettersen (and her back) Are Back in Texas

Pettersen Leads in First Round of North Texas Shootout I love it when people beat a diagnosis, or least give it a good run for its money. Suzann Pettersen is a golfer with a capitol “G,” and it’s sad to see to someone that excellent and competitive have to sit it out for a long …
