Damnit. Was really hoping for a King Kong v. Godzilla-esque pairing in Lexi Thompson and Michelle Wie who narrowly avoided a collision course. Don't particularly care for Lexi but would root hard for her in such a matchup. I mean nobody likes King Kong but come on, we have to root for the homonid over the reptile, am I right or am I wrong here.

The leaderboard for round 3 is as good an LPGA leaderboard as you are going to get in 2017. It'll be a good litmus test. If you can't get it up to watch tonight's action, you truly have no shits to give about LPGA. Talk is cheap, jack.

If you live east of the mississippi this is primetime TV. Saturday night, what else is there to watch? Matlock?

Given that there really is no choice but to watch this, I'll look forward to cracking a beer and seeing you all back here in a few hours.

All I really care about is seeing a large-sized chick win this thing. I want to see a cannonball and a big ass splash.

I will tell you, I am a big Lexi fan after watching her interact with fans live. Plus she is a Waffle House girl...LOL.

I was only joking. It's kind of meh. Thompson, Pettersen and Inbee are playing well but that's about it. I am still sore at all of you (minus Srogers) for not giving a single shit about this thing. You guys are always calling yourselves such real fans of golf, but I am sorry I remain skeptical. The hard evidence is just not there.

Oh I see, BK. You are one of those. Not me. I believe college students should be left alone to learn and grow. The mass-media-entertainment machine chews up and spits out these kids like no big deal, just to make a lousy buck.

Think I shared this story before this site was founded about Kerr where some of you might have seen it, but here goes. Several years ago as I was working the scoring tent at the LPGA tournament here, Kerr had barely made the cut, and had one of the first tee times off a single tee start. So she gets to 18, and puts her approach shot in one of the front greenside bunkers, playing to a back pin. She then proceeded to copy my bunker play, and blast her shot completely over the grandstands, into a mound of knee high grass on a mound on the other side. Not a single caddie I mentioned that too felt an ounce of sympathy for her, with several even saying that it could not happen to a nicer person. Needless to say, she spent very little time signing autographs after her round.


PostPosted: 11 Jul 2014 09:25 Post subject: Christie Kerr

Christie Kerr joined the LPGA at a very young age. I have read stories that she could be a bit prickly. Then she went on a health kick and slimmed down and became more fit. Several important wins followed and she must have had some good advice from her publicist. She became one of the mature American veterans of the tour based on what was written.

Still, I always sensed a bit of an attitude about her (if one can sense these things watching a TV). I noted that she opened the Women's Open with an "81", promptly developed a sore back and withdrew. If her back was bothering her, she should have given up her spot to the first alternate before the start of play.

Sorry Christie, -1.

I wonder if any of Lexi's crew are going to do a front flip into the pond this year?

Really, or as Lexi put it, "is this some sort of joke?" Some yahoo e-mails almost 24 hours later saying she barely misplaced putting her ball back after marking it, by maybe an inch, so she gets assessed a four stroke penalty.

I just watched the video. She clearly did not replace her ball in the same spot. Still, there is no way ANY penalty should be assessed a day later and in mid-round.

She shoulda just tapped it in. It looked like she was about to, but then at the last second decided to mark it.

That rule has got to go. People watching on TV should have NO SAY in a tournament. There are officials and other players watching each other. If the player doesn't realize they did something they were not supposed to, and their playing partners or officials--either on the course, or up in the booth or in a video truck somewhere on the course--don't notice, then it didn't happen in my book. It's not fair, particularly since every shot from every player in the field is not on camera for the world to see and judge. In my mind Lexi got shafted. (So did JFish and I. We both picked her this week.)

Exactly right. If I were Mike whan (sic?) I would make a statement that starting with the next tournament the LPGA will be enacting a local rule that all rulings and score disputes are final 1hour after a player signs their card. With 1 exception being intentional rules violations, but it must be proven they are intentional.

Not sure they can make that rule per the usga, but they could always say "the LPGA is going to be our own rulings body, we will currently follow all usga rules plus the one above until we can further review all rules."

I like how everyone (talkin' bout you too Tiger Woods) is raging about how some dude on his couch "gets to decide" the outcome of a major golf championship. People, that couch dude has no actual officiating power! He provides information, it's still up to the actual LPGA officials to make the judgment.

Judy Rankin, on-air just before the telecast ended, pleaded with the public to be more timely if they are going to call in penalties. Basically re-affirming the notion that home TV viewers have power! My hope is that a legion of new LPGA fans are going to be galvanized. We as Americans cannot stand by idly while jealous haters sabotage our girls! We must also be vigilant and watch every minute of LPGA action on TV so we can catch the likes of So Yeon Ryu and her un-American cronies in the act of breaking rules too.

The kind that supports his favorite players. Unlike say, you! You let Lexi down, in a sense. I am sure there is a So Yeon Ryu penalty somewhere on video, if you zoom in close enough. The point is you weren't there to catch it.

Based upon past comments Beef has made about Lexi, I was wondering if Beef mailed it in. glad to see that is not the case.

My cable TV set-top box is not HD capable. That's right, even if I wanted to call in these kind of penalties, I couldn't. Standard definition simply does not offer sufficient detail.

I might not be a Lexi Thompson fan but I am a human just like you people. When she made that first birdie after being told of the penalty, with tears still running down her face, I had to fight back my own tears. :fuckall
