The women said that divots were not an issue. In watching the coverage yesterday some were really struggling after missing the greens with their approaches. One commentator said they can't apply enough spin to their chips to hold the firm greens. I saw Cristy Kerr try to pitch a ball onto the green, land a few feet short and have the ball run back down to her feet.

Sadena is close to the cut line, and she still has 13 holes to play. Top 60 and ties and that's looking like +8 or possibly +9, if enough slide back.
Sadena is at +6 for the tournament after just 5 holes today, so she needs to play the remaining as well or better than she has played so far.
On another note, I noticed today for some reason, more than last week what a goat ranch that course is. I'd say over half the courses I play in DFW are nicer layouts and better maintained. I have no desire to play it.
And to echo someone earlier, much more interested in this event than last week's. Hope Michelle can bring it home.
I don't know who that someone should be, but I do know who it won't be:
The dermatologists that are all too busy removing moles and cancer cells from those of us dumbos who DON'T slather ourselves in sunscreen every time we go bake in the sun for 6 hours at a time.
Lol, yeah she's got a lot on... I think it's a cultural thing to make sure the face doesn't get too tanned...
I saw a funny goof by ESPN. I haven't really been watching (too wrapped up in the World Cup) but at one point ESPN showed the scorecard for one of the players and their graphic added up the pars for the back nine wrong. They showed the back 9 as a par 34. Even though they had all of the individual hole pars correct (a 5, 2 3s and 6 4s) and they should have added up to 35 they had 34 as the par for the back nine,
Lucky for them that if we treat them the same as players are treated there is no penalty since they are only responsible for the individual hole scores, not adding them up. LOL
Great swing too, I haven't gotten a chance to watch a lot of it but thought it was fun seeing her play. Kinda funny/cute too with how much smaller she is than everyone else. Hope she takes it as a learning experience, gets back to playing junior/amateur tournaments and doesn't try to get on the Michele Wie program of trying to compete too far beyond her abilities.
