Allison Hanna-Williams was in an airport in Louisiana when I asked if she had heard the news.

Yep, I agree. As I have said many times before I think the main reason is because the LPGA is not on a major U S teleivision station. What ever station it is on a lot(most?) people don't get because their cable co. doesn't carry it or they don't have cable. I'm sure if they were on national t v the viewership would be much higher than it is on 'whatever station it's on now'. Thanks Bivens!

I wonder if the Asian influence is having negative repercussions, e.g., 10 Kims, 5 Lees, 6 Parks, etc. They are wonderful golfers and wonderful people and I can enjoy watching them all day --- but sometimes I wonder if this balance is a tipping point for some of the sponsors.

TIGER CHEERLEADERS!- Who is the real King of Majors? Tiger Woods or Roger Federer! Tiger won his first major in 1997 at the Masters at the age of 21. He is now age 33 with 14 majors and 4 shy of the all time PGA record of 18. Roger Federer won his first major in 2003 at Wimbledon also at the age of 21. He is now age 27 with 13 majors and 1 shy of the all time ATP Majors record of 14. Taking into consideration that Roger won his first major 6 years and 25 majors after Tiger won his first, is there any doubt who is the REAL KING of Majors? In 2009 watch Tiger try to win the U.S. Open for the 2nd year in a row and don't forget to bring your POM POMS. Afterwards, watch Tiger in New York watching Roger Federer try to win the U.S. Open for a record 6th year in a row! Now even You TIGER CHEERLEADERS need to give that a PEP-RALLY!
