In the last ten years, the LPGA has lost over a quarter of its events, down to 28 from a high point of 38. Prize money is down over $10 million. What can be done to save the LPGA?
Anna Rawson knows the LPGA is in trouble, and she has a plan for fixing it. If you don't know the name, maybe you should. Rawson is a golfer who models in her spare time (or maybe it's the other way around). You may know her as the GoDaddy.com spokeswomen who swings a golf club.
That would be fair since she really hasn't done much on tour thus far. Aside from being in the top 20 in driving distance, she is outside the top 50 in every meaningful category in her sophomore season on the LPGA. In 11 starts this year, she has made just three cuts. To be fair, she did notch a T13 at the LPGA State Farm Classic. Still, it would be easy to dismiss her as the Anna Kournikova of golf, and that's not entirely inaccurate at this point. She's beautiful, and she hasn't won a thing.
