Swagger, cool, young and confident and yeah...he’s Asian American. Don’t confuse racial with racist.😉 

I think that comparison falls a bit flat. AK was a party-guy. Confident? Sure, but also a bit brash. Morikawa seems like as polished and low-key as a guy could be. Honestly, neither their personalities, nor their games strike me as very similar to one another.

Poor Brooks.

Whoever named Lake Merced Golf Club was a bit generous with the truth. 

If you grouped Tiger with two random club pros, you still wouldn’t be able to put together a group using the rest of the field that could equal his group’s majors or PGA Tour wins totals.

I think the traits I listed are shared by both of them. Then you proceed to list traits that make them different. Yeah. Ok. I tell ya...people really wanna look for fire where’s there no smoke.

Not really. I don't care about looking for "smoke" - it's just a bad comparison. There are other golfers that had a lot more in common with Morikawa at age 23 than Anthony Kim.

Agree. Bad comparison.

They’re more different than similar.

I dunno, lumping in a guy of Japanese descent with a guy of Korean descent when those 2 cultures have had serious animosity with each other for centuries smacks of an uncomfortable 'they're all alike'.  I wouldn't go to Korea and tell them they are the same race as Japanese.

Good weekend for California born players. Morikawa wins as does Danielle Kang. IIRC, there was a spot during the PGA that showed a bunch of CA players high up on the leaderboard.

Rose Zhang won the US Am too! Trifecta. Got the major Asian countries covered. Japan, Korea, China.

    • Yeah this is really the key point. Not only is there a 100 year head start, but the women also face a generally sexist society and specifically a super sexist entertainment industry. The LPGA players aren't getting any help trying to overcome those handicaps. They've never gotten more than a tiny percent of the promotion the men get, so we have no idea what the "real" ratio in popularity is. I wasn't able to find any average ratings data. But for comparisoin, in the tennis U.S. Open finals women outrated men in 2019 (4m vs 2.75m) and in 2020 (2.15m vs 1.48m). You can make the exact same complaints about women's tennis that people use to justify not having to worry about the low purses and popularity of the LPGA. In both sports the women play a significantly slower and less powerful game. Just to take a single example, I was rooting for Finau and was really interested in the AmEx last Sunday. But the women's ToC was easily the better Sunday. A transcendent star would surely help the LPGA. But then most people would probably cite it as proof that the women's field was too thin and it not being worth watching 🤨
    • I answered no, but I used to have a putter that was on some sort of infomercial. I haven't had any luck finding anything on the web about it, but if I can find it, I will snap a picture of it.
    • I thought I saw that dimple pattern somewhere last year.  
    • I have gadgets but don't carry them in my bag.    I have a Medicus 5 iron and it stays at home.    I have hit balls with it many times.  I learned to manipulate my swing to make it work!  I have an Orange Whip but it's not really a gadget as much as it is a warm up tool.
