2014 LPGA Swinging Skirts in Daly City...sounds nice.

7 posts in this topic

Right.  An LPGA event, sponsored by a Taiwan golf group brings their enthusiasm and money to the SF neighborhood, Lake Merced Golf Club. The group sponsored a pro tourney in Taiwan last year and Lydia Ko won that one.  She and many others, in fact the world top 10 ranked ladies expected to play.

It's on.  After 2 rounds, Stacy Lewis at -6,  Lydia Ko and French lady Icher at -5.  Compared to men's tourney many nationalities in top 20 here. Cool, foggy weather near SF so some delays expected.

I was there today (3rd round) in person.  It was cold and windy in the morning and the players had it tough - a par on any hole was a good score.   As the day went on, weather warmed up and wind calmed down and scores got better.  Later on, it became a match play between Stacy and Ko, each trading birdies and running away from the field.  TV screen doesn't do justice.   If a tour comes to near your area, go see it.

Good work from Ko - her demeanor is amazing. That shot on 18 was legit.

Yeah, I watched that as well.  Pretty impressive on all of their parts to hit such good shots on 18 coming in (including Shin).

Especially great shot on Ko's part after having already seen Lewis' approach, and ESPECIALLY great putt to avoid the playoff.

P.S.  Another solid showing from Michelle Wie (T9).

Missed the last round, got to see the back nine of the 3rd round. Great course, cool to see it get some recognition, would be an awesome track for a women's US Open.

Looks like the weather was pretty good, we use to call it Lake Miserable ;-)

    • 14- way Carry Bags?
      I had an ogio 14 way carry bag and hated it after one frustrating round I gave it away. 
    • XE1 Wedge: Have you tried it?
      It may be great but at what cost?  Not willing to lose my dignity to possibly save a shot or two.  Plus I love my jaws wedges with the md grooves. Straight ?. 
    • Donald Trump for president?
      Well said Mr.  Desmond the funny thing in all this is that somehow poor people support Trump against their own best interest. And call bernie a communist despite not really knowing what that or socialism is or the difference between the two. 
    • Donald Trump for president?
      Bernie says the system is rigged - stats since the 1980's prove that a great amount of wealth has shifted towards a very small percentage of people. Does that not concern you?  Walmart employs people with such small wages that their people are on welfare, so the argument goes that Walmart is a huge beneficiary of living off the government tit. As to Bernie's war against financial institutions, can you doubt that Wall St helped out the 2007 Depression? Completely irresponsible behavior based on greed. Hedge fund managers get capital gains rate on their compensation? Ridiculous. How many people do you know make over $10M on ordinary income? That is where he proposes a 52% tax that become 73% when one adds SS and Single Payer taxes, and then you have the state income tax, so it would get high. And it is too high, but he would not get that through Congress unless we truly had a revolution and all the Dems came out to vote for the revolution. If all Dems vote, Pubs lose except in areas so gerryrmandered that the one party it favors will always win. Bernie on guns? He won't take away guns, it's not in his record. Bernie is not snake oil -- Bernie and Trump are here because of the last 30 years of growing inequity, political correctness and divisiveness. If we do not address it with traditional politics, then eventually people will wake up and vote their interests, which would be Sanders  or a similar politician. It is time for change, the last 30 years have been tough on all levels of the lower and middle classes while the upper class have the "let them eat cake" attitude. That only takes one so far before people vote for big change. I asked a 20 something the other night who she likes, Trump, Cruz, Sanders, Clinton - I said Clinton would work with the other side, Bernie wants a pipedream - she said "I want Bernie." I just said if you want Bernie, you better get out the vote because it will take a lot of young people to do it. Before I am "labeled" again, I don't think any candidates in either party are to my liking. But I think we do need incremental change ... now to reverse some of the last 30 years and renew the American Dream -- it should be for all, not 1%.
    • Anyone enjoying the drink tonight?
      Hopslam last night, just released by Bells.  Best beer in a can, which used to only be in a bottle.
