Stacy Lewis a Sore Loser? - Page 3

post #37 of 49

Bit of a double standard, I think. If a guy is sulky when losing he's determined, a competitor, he hates losing, etc.

 

Because she's a woman she's "pouty" and so on. Please.

Agreed.  I have zero problem with Lewis.

I think there may be a little of that dynamic going on, but c'mon men are scrutinized too. Tiger is under intense scrutiny in the same manner for club throwing and whatnot. Sabo is practically hated by the entire golf community. Look at Phil's taxation comments, or Rory complaining about the weather at the British; all drew lots of negative commentary.

Then Rosie had a talk with Lewis and paired her with rookie and low tenured LPGA pro, Ryann O'Toole.

The US team has no team leader(s) when you can't rely on your "experienced" pros to team up with sore loser Lewis.

 

It is any surprise the US gals got thrashed on home soil this year to a Euro team that was inferior on paper....they are too busy making posters, and ensuring their ribbons and nail polish are color coordinated.

 

Ole Ole!!!!:-D

I prefer to have someone on my team who gets upset when they are losing rather than one who quits by hitting all their golf balls into a water hazard.

Lexi wants to win just as much as any of her competitors......it's obvious when you watch her inside the ropes.

But she doesn't come with all the 'drama' baggage as some other US female pros.

 

I know it will be tough to dethrone Lewis as the #1 US gal....yes, Lewis can flat out play......but give me Lexi as the #1 any day.

 

I expect Lewis to be the world #1 by the end of 2014....so she'll be in contention many times on Sunday...but she won't win them all....so we'll be able to see her poutiness and unsportsmanlike conduct many times....it will be fun to watch...at least for me.

Stacy just lost a Dubai European tournament on the last hole.  She gave a hug to winner and just walked away.  I am sure she is steaming inside but showed nothing of it.

 

More notable thing on this tournament is that the 1st & 2nd place finishers were from LPGA.   Their final scores were separated by 7 - 8 strokes from 3rd place finish.  It showed huge disparity between LPGA & EU tours.

She got distracted on her birdie putt on 18...and was pointing out the offending individual with her caddy all as PP was putting...where is the etiquette in that ? If a camera clicking upsets your concentration then obviously she must concentrate deeper...seems like more of the same from lil ms ross perot...whining and blaming and turning people off

Yes, she handled herself perfectly today. She was clearly disappointed and she should've been. But she watched PP win it, hugged, and got out the way for the water celebration.

By the way, PP is really cute and is almost hot. I would slot her between Gerina Piller and Jessica Korda.

It was on 17 and what professional golfer, male or female, would not do the same thing.  Good grief.  I have seen many Pro men golfer berate someone in the crowd for doing that.  You seem to hold Lewis to a higher standard.

I agree she's a good looking player ... :-).

I have to agree with fortunato that the timing was a bit suspect. Don't do that while PP is putting.

 

And Lewis obviously let it get in her head because she played 18 terribly and never gave herself a chance to make birdie. Props to PP, playing 18 masterfully.

I like Stacy Lewis well enough. In her segment with Feherty, she came across pretty well I thought. Everyone does not have a life of the party personality, and everyone is not an actor. The Marathon commercial sounded scripted because it was, and not so well I think. Stacy has overcome physical hardship to get where she is, and we don't know what has shaped her personality. I think what you are seeing most of the time is just honesty, and sometimes being hard on herself rather than the other player. Mr. Hogan was certainly a great player and gentleman, but no one called him Mr. Personality-at least on the course.At the China thing, I did think she sounded whiny, but hey who wouldn't? To me that is just honesty and not covering up frustration with fake sportsmanship. She just wears her feelings on her sleeve. Yesterday, the back and forth between Zach and Tiger was interesting--both wanted to win, but not on the other guys mistakes-it seemed genuine. I pull for Lexi as well, I think she has a lot of potential as a face for the LPGA as well as great talent. I still pull for Michelle Wei, but I do wish she could overcome that putting stance.

Korda fired her caddy in the middle of a round.   Bubba berated his caddy for a wrong club selection on national TV.   John Daly - much, much worse.  Tiger, media scrutiny or not, he did questionable things on and off the field.   Compare to others, I can live with Lewis' behavior.   However, I agree that others in LPGA have better personality.  NY Choi is one of my favorites when it comes to personality.
