Wow, no posts in over a week. I guess Korea's Sung Hyun Park shut up all you haters and really did it with authority this time.

VERY exciting period of time for all of us here. I know most of you guys are fully up to speed but for the benefit of the few living under a rock, next week the LPGA rolls into Jasonfishville, VA for the Kingsmill (formerly Michelob :puke) Championship.

AND the week after that (!), the greatest show (of women's professional golf) on earth visits Bkuehn Township, MI for the Volvik Championship.

I am so excited for you guys. Cannot wait for the exhaustive first-hand reports.

If I were close by to either of those wonderful cities, I know I'd already have my tix in hand, the spider webs dusted off my folding chair and a fresh notebook ready to record my thoughts while there so I don't forget a minute of it! I would expect Fish and BK are as excited and will be filing a full report.....with lots of pictures. We are counting on you guys!

The next 2 weeks are going to be insane at work (including weekends).

Unfortunately this includes both Mothers day and Memorial day. So me going to the kingsmill will not happen this year.

DougE, fear not. Soon enough the LPGA is coming to Galloway NJ. That's only like three hours away from you. Pffft, don't give me that "I'm too busy" crap.

Hopefully she can redeem this sad, failing tournament. Nothing against Sarah "Plain" Jane Smith but come on.

The course is usually grade-A, but Alberto screwed things up for them playing earlier in the year due to them playing in Hellabama.

ARIYA! :yess She didn't make it easy on herself, but prevails in the end. Awesome bunker shot of the 4th playoff hole to win after having a 7 stroke lead at the turn. What a collapse, but she pulled it out in the end. Phew! I liked the result 100Xs as much as the Memorial. One of my favorites wins this one and my least favorite won the other.

Wow props to ariya. Everyone is talking about her ability to put the back 9 behind her and win the playoff. But it's bigger than just that. She was 1 down after the first playoff hole. I don't think I would have still had all 14 clubs when teeing it up on 18 for the 3rd time after that stretch.

Also wtf Usga? A 2 hole aggregate and you just play 18 both times? What a load of shit that is. At least pick 2 consecutive holes so there isn't a long break between #1 and 2 with the players being carted back.

Actually, the aggregate two-hole playoff was played on separate holes, 14 and 18. After they were tied through those two, it then switched to a sudden death format on 18, over and over, partially to keep the gallery somewhat in place.

I saw Ariya Juntarnugarn (I am trying to learn how to spell her last name - sigh) was leading by a pile and decided to not waste my time watching her coronation. :facepalm I missed a roller coaster of a finish.
Let's Play 36

You sure did. At one point I was certain that Ariya had pissed it away. Certain I tell you.

When Ariya's sister got her first win a few weeks ago, Ariya was so choked up with emotion. By contrast, yesterday when the tables were turned, Moriya looked kind of like, "Oh hey, good for you." That really disappointed me.

Ariya is a very impressive, exceptionally powerful young golfer. I knew it last year when I picked her virtually every week in our dumb fantasy league and I think she will be a regular contender nearly every week (and frequent winner) for years to come. From my perspective, it doesn't hurt that she plays the Pro V1x and Titleist AP2 irons. Best irons I have ever played. Very few women play Titleist irons. That's one of the reasons I started to watch her in the first place and liked what I saw.

As far as her collapse yesterday, pressure certainly can affect anyone out there (including Tiger), but in a US Open, or any huge major, it's not unheard of. On the other hand, the fact that she came back and won after that complete collapse speaks volumes on her grit. This girl is for real. Don't bet against her.

I agree. As good as she is, I believe she is far from her peak. Didn't know she played AP2. Maybe I should look into a set. She also plays TM woods, and long irons. Doug, you ever get tempted to use TM woods?

Never. Can't stand TM. Not due to their equipment. Of all the companies who make bullshit marketing claims, TM has the Trumpiest. They also take major advantage of their retailers. Long story I don't want to get into now, but the bottom line is that I don't like the brand, not the quality of the products. Some of the top players in the world have proven their equipment is fine.

I love my Titleist hybrids and fairways (and irons and wedges). Hit them all well. No need to look elsewhere for me. If Titleist ever went away, TM would still not be on my list of clubs to consider. Of the major brands Ping would be first. Their approach is similar to Titleist. They make great stuff. Mizuno would be on my list too. I'd look at Callaway woods and drivers. I might even look at Ben Hogan stuff. But, Titleist ain't going away anytime soon, so I'm good for now, thanks.

Stacy Lewis is currently on the leaderboard, and you can even see little Stacy Jr. starting to poke out of her belly. So weird that one can still compete in sports in such a condition. But mad props. :thumbs

I can't remember the name off of the top of my head, but I seem to remember a player like seven months pregnant almost winning the US Women's Open several years ago.
