Possible New LPGA Event Coming to St. Petersburg, Florida?

That would be wonderful and the sooner the better. :^)  (Mar 15, 2010 | post #2)


Why Not Gender-Blind Golf Tournaments?

Rich is right. The way you compensate for the physical strength disparity is by having separate, but equal lol, tee boxes. Once off the tee, the competition is exactly the same for all. I think the folks who make the rules for the game know what they are doing. :^)  (Feb 5, 2010 | post #7)


Why Not Gender-Blind Golf Tournaments?

"This is why it isn't done. The7re has to be a way "to even it up". Playing different lengths, is playing a different course. Unfortunately this will only happen in silly season events" That is simply not true. The article talked about three tees, many courses have as many as five. The intent of the differing distances, and the handicap system, is to allow equal competition regardless skill level. To assert that length alone is what counts is to completely ignore the simple fact that apart from the tee shot, the women, regular non-pro players, amateurs and professionals, are all playing their second and subsequent, shots from the same place. Length alone does NOT make the golf course nor. The differing tee boxes account for the differing skill levels and physical strength as well, you do know they also have seniors tees? The different tee boxes even things out is all, and if women were allowed to play from them, all else would be equal.  (Feb 1, 2010 | post #3)


Dear Google, Paula Creamer Is Not Natalie Gulbis. Love, C...

You know what? Google's main page search isn't all that good. I use nothing but the advanced search page, have it bookmarked. You can put in a main phrase, with modifiers of must include words, must NOT include words, or various words that can be included. I tried your search there and it worked perfectly. A photo montage with one picture of she and Natalie, all the rest were here and there were 246,000 results. So take a look at this: com/search?hl=en &as_q=&as_ epq=paula+creamer &as_oq=&as _eq=&num=10 &lr=&as_fi letype=&ft=i &as_sitesearch =&as_qdr=all &as_rights= &as_occt=any &cr=&as_nl o=&as_nhi= &safe=images You'll find what you are looking for. :^) gene  (Jan 27, 2010 | post #2)


How Tiger defined golf this decade

Quite correct. Without Tiger, you have a tour full of guys who are lucky to win one tournament in their lifetime, with a handful that may win a bit more. There is only real interest in golf, other than from diehard fans (many of whom have been priced out of actually playing by the ridiculous greens fees every place, including public courses charge these days - and they wonder why more rounds aren't being played, sheesh) when Tiger is on the scene. He is the only athlete capable of multiple win seasons, of creating great drama as well as great golf and he is in his prime. Golf needs Tiger a lot more than Tiger needs golf.  (Dec 31, 2009 | post #2)

What if Tiger had cheated at golf?

Tiger's private life is exactly that. We live in age where celebrities garbage is literally gone through as our pundits dig for dirt, because that is what sells. And few people like anything better than watch the high fall. It says as much about us as a society and as people that we are STILL writing stupid articles like this one, sitting high up on our pedestal looking down on the lonely recluse that Tiger has become. We presume to JUDGE him? That is not our province, nor in my job description as a human being. He and Elin will work this out or not, in either case that is between he and she. But to suggest that he cheated at golf, well, that is low even for a sportswriter. To lead the article with that title is worthy of the National Enquirer, not a reputable newspaper. What-if's are gotchas of a special, despicable kind. What IS, now that is important, speculation on what could have been or might be is irresponsible journalism. One would think something so basic to our human existence would at least be mentioned in any decent journalism school. Assuming this smart guy went to one and didn't get his job because his uncle Harry owns the rag he writes for. See? Shoe on the other foot doesn't feel so good does it? When Tiger comes back, I am sure there will be some drunken fool shouting some foolish comment at him, personally, I will simply enjoy again watching the best golfer to ever play the game and stay out of his personal life other than to wish Tiger and his family, peace, love and happiness, however they come to experience them. The only people who EVER sat Tiger on a pedestal were sportswriters and commentators, never did HE claim to be the best ever, his comments were, and will be, focused on his game and his performance on the course. Everything else is his alone and off-limits. There is no "right" to know anything here, nor will there ever be. Even celebrities have a right to a private life. Even we regular folks too. So layof the irresponsible headlines and slack-jawed commentary pundits, lest in turn, you be judged and found less than perfect...  (Dec 17, 2009 | post #2)

Why Tiger Woods Stands to Gain From Scandal

All of that is between Tiger and his wife. And there is no "guarantee " that he will continue to have outside of his marriage relationships. He may have learned just how much his family means to him and never stray again. To assume otherwise is to judge actions he has not taken. As to how, Elin can stay with him, perhaps she has a more forgiving nature than most, perhaps she loves him and wants to make their marriage work. There is no excusing what he did but the consequences of that are between he and Elin and none of the public's business. He's a smart man, I don't think he'll repeat this behavior. In any event, his personal life is his own and I don't concern myself with it, or anyone else's for that matter, I have enough to deal with in my own life. And none of this changes the simple fact that he is the best to ever play the game of golf. I will continue to watch his professional career and hope he can manage his personal life to the satisfaction of his wife, himself and his extended family. This will follow him all of his life, his children will know what he did, he will be atoning for his transgressions for a very long time. Leave him alone and let him handle that. As he lets you handle your life.  (Dec 11, 2009 | post #4)

What Will Change for Tiger Woods?

The "story" is over, except for the feeding frenzy the media will generate while looking for other women who claim involvement with him. That is all between Tiger and Elin and has NOTHING to do with his career. If she forgives him, as she seems to have done, why should we do less? What gives us the right to cast the first stone? I abhor the sleaze perpetuate and avidly sought by our "media". There ARE real issues to research and write about, but they spend their time playing gossip columnists. Par for THEIR course.  (Dec 3, 2009 | post #4)


Wie's first LPGA win a coming-of-age moment?

Very nice. And judging by the galleries that still surround her, she does indeed have the potential to inject a much-needed dose of "star power" into the LPGA just at the time it is needed most. Her first win couldn't have come at a better time for the new commissioner, the tour and herself. We have a number of stellar young American women now but Michelle has a following like none other. I think this is just the beginning of a long and successful path for her. Which will be good for everyone, including we fans of the LPGA tour.  (Nov 23, 2009 | post #2)


Sorenstam charges Americans with bad sportsmanship

lol, yes, the infamous Solheim cup controversy. Even ten years later, we were right and she is still wrong, giggle. :^)  (Nov 18, 2009 | post #4)


2010 LPGA Schedule Released

Still a lot of big gaps in that. I hope the new commissioner is successful in obtaining a more complete schedule for the ladies very soon. Then, with expanded prize money!  (Nov 18, 2009 | post #2)

Tiger Woods Bad Shot

"Golf is not a sport!! Michelle Wie herself said a few years back, and I don't know if she still does the same nowadays, but she once said "I don't even like to run" What does that say about golfers??" Nothing. It says Michelle Wie doesn't like to run. Do you? She certainly appears to be in fine physical condition. Ever notice Tiger's physique? You don't get that without effort. Golf is every bit as much a sport as any other. Except hunting, THAT is not a sport...  (Nov 17, 2009 | post #5)

ROGER FEDERER has 15 majors at the age of 28

Again with the apples and oranges. The sports are nothing alike. Do you think Roger will still be winning majors in his 30's, 40's? Tiger will be. Roger will be long retired and living in luxury while Tiger's career can carry 30 years, at least, longer than Roger's. Golf and Tennis are not at all alike. Why do you insist on posting this ad homininum argument everywhere on this site?  (Nov 17, 2009 | post #2)

Tiger Woods Bad Shot

John Daly can hit a small ball sitting on a tee 350 yards, accurately, virtually every time. Can you? Comparing track athletes to golfers is ridiculous, do you think those track athletes will still be doing what they are doing into their 80's? Golfers, if they live that long will be. Golf is a gentle lifelong activity, most other professional sports carry a few years, on average, at the top level. Apples and oranges, learn the difference.  (Nov 17, 2009 | post #4)
