Once again, amateur wins Pro ladies event. Same amateur! - Page 3

Swinging fast is a skill, too, wils.

 

Women aren't faster runners than men if we compare men's 100-meter times against women's 80-meter times.

 

PGA Tour and LPGA Tour scoring averages are apples and oranges. Green speeds. Where the holes are cut. The width of fairways. The length of holes. The thickness of the rough. Etc. All make the comparison(s) invalid.

I should probably say they're not very "entertaining" rather than "good". I watch golf to be amazed. To see people do something I can't even dream of doing. Watching someone hit a 160 yd 7 iron while playing 6,600 yd courses that aren't generally set up all that tough, just doesn't hold my attention.

If your handicap is legit, then you are good relative to the average male golfer.

 

I don't watch a lot of women's golf either, but comparing men to women is like comparing nectarines to peaches.  It would be stupid for me to say the top women milers are slow because they can't break 4 minutes when I can't break 6.  Men and women are not the same, not quite as different as humans and horses, but still different.  If we could listen to a bunch of horses talk, they might fairly criticize the top Men's milers for not being able to break 2 minutes but it wouldn't make sense for me to criticize horses for lacking speed because the Kentucky Derby winner was only 3 years old.  

 

My point is, if you can't beat someone who is at the top end of their category, then don't criticize them for not having talent.

 

I can't disagree with your entertaining comment as that is personal to you.

I read some where that the srixon hat is courtesy of srixon being a sponsor of the nz junior golf program, of which Lydia is a member. Hope this helps dispel any innuendo of "secret payments" to an amateur.

Yeah.   And LPGA's age cap of 18 is ludicrous.   Just ask Wie who peaked at age 14 and was bigger than some PGA players at that age a2_wink.gif.
