Will the Women Ever Play at Pebble Beach?

7 posts in this topic

I thought the woman would never play at Oakmont, but I was there when Paula Creamer won the U.S. Women's open in 2010.
I Will be at St. Andrews, Scotland when the women play the British Open this July.
I will be hoping that someday soon, the woman will be invited to play at Pebble Beach.
What does everyone think?

I should have been more specific....I was reffering to the LPGA having their Open there.

I think they will someday.  Times are changing and as younger people with more modern ideas take over, things will continue to change.  Granted, it might be another 20 or 30 years but I think eventually you will even see a Womens' Masters at Augusta.

Am I missing something? This isn't a rights thing, it's just that they don't have a tournament scheduled there, correct?

Does the LPGA have an Open?  Or do you mean the USGA Women's Open? If so, it comes down to money, doesn't it? The cost of holding a major tournament at Pebble Beach would have to be much more than at some of the private courses they normally use for the Women's Open.  Pebble doesn't need the "prestige" factor, and quite likely wouldn't want to tie up its course for that many weeks unless it was the Men's Open, IMO.

The USGA Women's Open. It has been held at Oakmont. Why not Pebble Beach? The Women's British Open is in St. Andrews this year.

    • My Swing (coop6)
      The glaring issue is you are shutting the clubface immediately after impact. Many tour players are holding the face square until halfway up on the forward swing, some even open the face after impact. I have seen a few that shut the face as well but it happens a bit later. I was doing this because my club face was too open at the top. The reason you're doing this is because on the downswing, your body is not bringing the club to the ball. Your upper body should turn and begin moving the arms through. Remember the body guides where the arms should be going. The body must go first where the arms will eventually go. For the forward swing the head doesn't have to go first, but the torso has to aim where the arms will be going. If you look at your swing, you can see from the top your arms drop down, which is great as it prevents over the top and promotes dead hands. The problem is the body isn't leading or pulling. The body isn't doing enough on the downswing. Look at the forward swing, it is mostly arms. The arms are going where the body has never been before. Don't let the arms go where the body hasn't been.
    • Anybody play golf without keeping score on a regular basis?
      I normally keep a true and accurate score even though I don't belong to a club, don't have an established handicap, and don't play in any tournaments. Still, if I'm playing my usual casual round...and really playing terribly, I'll occasionally toss the scorecard in the trash. It helps me concentrate on just hitting good shots instead of focusing on making a particular score...and my game usually improves somewhat....

      No problem! Excellent progress.
    • How to eliminate blowup holes
      Here's my approach to eliminating the big numbers. Work hard on putting and chipping. I've always maintained that anyone can learn to chip and putt. Its the only part of the game that takes zero athletic ability....just practice, technique and confidence. I miss a lot more greens than I hit...but I make a lot of pars with a chip and a putt (or a very long 2 putt). Even if I don't make par, I often have tap in bogeys. Know your strengths and weaknesses...and be honest with yourself. Use that information to determine your "go to" shots. I'm a lousy iron player, but pretty consistent with the fairway woods. If I'm having one of those days where I'm doing nothing with the irons but hitting fat shots and shanks, I'll start hitting fairway woods off the tee in order to have a fairway wood for a 2nd shot (I carry 3, 5 and 6 woods). Even if I miss the green from that distance, I'll usually be withing chip and putt range (see the last paragraph). I'm normally pretty straight with those fairway woods, but can hit a fade or slice at will....but not a draw. If I'm in a spot that requires a draw to hit the green I'll aim for a spot short of the green (or even right of the green) that I know I can hit. Then try my best to make par from there - and be please with bogey. If I'm on the other side of the fairway and need to bend it to the right I'll be more aggressive since that's a high percentage shot for me. I've had days where I'm hitting my irons so poorly, I'll resort to playing bump-and-run any place I can. Yeah, it makes me feel like a chump when I'm bumping a 7 iron from 100 yards instead of flying a wedge in there....but not a much of a chump as hacking the wedge around and making a double or triple.

      Thank you for your opinion. I have things I am working on that I am committed to 100%. I am going to continue on what I am working on.
