Watching this Solheim Cup I thought about the greens most of the LPGA events are played on, and how these greens at Colorado CC are a lot tougher with both slope and speed. It showed, just unfortunately mostly with the Americans.
I have never been much of a Michelle Wei fan. I think her father was a task master of sorts. I was on the golf driving range at my club tonight and I'm all the way on the one side of it when one of the members brings his son up and starts to just brow beat the kid. He must have brought up four to five buckets of balls, and he's all over the young boy. Every swing is met with a barrage of criticism. I have seen this many times with this father, and tonight it was so bad I moved to the other side of the range. I told one of the young guys collecting baskets that this poor kid would never truly "love" the game. It made me think of Wei. The game is really mental for her now - that table top putting style is a byproduct, but I wonder if she loves it anymore the way you know the Euro girls love it.
Anyway, I love match play golf. But ya gotta make some putts! Maybe instead of all the lovey, dovey soapy stuff next time, just show up and play some golf. The rest will take care of itself.
