Comparing Inbee Park & Yani Tseng

1 post in this topic


First let me once again say congratulations to Inbee Park for not only making history in winning her third consecutive major championship, but also winning three consecutive LPGA tournaments. Inbee has now won 6 tournaments already this year. No one else has won more than two.

Inbee has become,without a doubt, the most dominant player on the LPGA tour. People are already calling her a future Hall of Famer, and the next great player to follow in the footsteps of Annika Sorenstam and Lorena Ochoa. Where have we heard that before? Oh yes, it was about this time last year when we were all writing about Yani Tseng.

What Inbee has accomplished this year is bound to draw comparisons to what Yani was doing until the middle of last year, when she went into a slump that she is still yet to recover from.

The truth of the matter is that they are two completely different kinds of players. Yani, with her huge drives and very confident personality (at that time), was extremely exciting to watch. Inbee on the other hand, can almost put you to sleep. She doesn't wow you with her driving ability, and has a very laid back personality.
What Inbee does have though is the hottest putter that I have ever seen on any tour. She seems to always be on top of the leader board, even though many times she doesn't appear to be playing all that well. Her ability to drop long putts at crucial times is uncanny.

Comparing Inbee's 2013 season to Yani's 2011 season:

Towards the end of the 2011 season I did a blog showing how dominant Yani was that year.

Here are some of those numbers:

    • Gun Laws
      By newtogolf · Posted
      It reduces down to "You can take my gun when you can pry it from my cold, dead fingers" because the current government is not trusted and there are no assurances that once subjective determinations are added to gun control laws that legal, sane, law abiding citizens won't be denied the right to purchase guns. Right now the test is simple, have you been convicted of a crime or not.  There's no easy way to determine mental stability without consultative evaluations that are completely subjective, not to mention expensive. These proposed laws also don't prevent a situation like in Sandy Hook where the guns were owned by a family member who was not mentally ill or when a the mentally ill person acquires them illegally.   While I'm not trying to minimize the loss of the victims and their families we're talking about on average 9 incidents a year.  I also would add that some of the victims families in OK have openly stated they are against any additional gun control laws.

      No it isn't. The primary purpose depends on who is using it, just as it does when using a knife. Could be whittling wood, preparing a meal, or carving up a human body. Depends on who is using it. Put your way, one could say the primary purpose of a vehicle is to hurtle heavy pieces of metal, glass, plastic, and human bodies through space at high speeds, too. There are legitimate uses for owning a gun. Or a knife. Or a baseball bat. Or an explosive. The person is what decides whether the gun (or knife, or bat, or explosive) is to be used for good or bad. Spare us the rhetoric. It's not there. As I've said ten or so times over the years, everything I've read points toward the gun violence problem being an economic one. Canada has a lot of guns, too. So do other countries.

      I think it's covered at http://lakeviewcc.com/turfcare/etiquette/repairing_ball_marks.php . If you use that massive thing, I'm calling you out as an irresponsible golfer.
