How many times will Paula (the Pink Panther) win this year?

21 posts in this topic

My fearless forecast is 4 times, including one Major (which will be her first). The Major that I would like to see her win is the Women's United States Open.

Im gonna say 1. IMO, Creamer hasnt learned how to control her emotions when things dont go her way.
I think she will contend in at least 6 tournaments, but as soon as something doesnt go her way she will go into temper tantrum/pout mode and that will be the end of it.
IMO, the Koreans will dominate the LPGA again this year.

I hope that Paula has learned her lesson. It is great that she is an intense competitor but we all know that intensity has to be controlled and channeled. As for the Koreans, you are probably right. How many of them are on the LPGA Tour now---45?

I hope she wins multiple times but I'm gonna say just one. Just looks like more and more good Asian players coming on board which spreads the wealth. I don't see a dominate player this year. Ocha may win 3-4, but thats about it.

I would like to see her win a few and a major, but as many of you have pointed out, the Koreans will be a force. I would like to see all the young American players hold their own this year...

Cristie Kerr has the game to do it, but do not forget the old gals, like Juli Inkster.

You lucky guy, you. She is a beauty, and I have met her a couple of times, and she is as good-looking in person as she is on TV or in the magazines.

I'll go with two times. The LPGA talent is very spread out. It will be very tough to win multiple times by anybody except Ochoa.

I forgot to mention two other American women---Natalie and Laura Diaz. Now that her son, Cooper, is older and healthy, Laura can concentrate more on golf and practice more. She had a couple of good tournaments last year,so she is due to win again (she does have two victories so far in her career--the Corning Classic and the Welch's Circle K, both in 2002).

She is only my bride in my fantasy. In reality she is the woman I most desire to make my ex-wife.

I am going to say 3 times. 1 being a major...I think she has the talent to win on that tour.

I would also agree with controlling her emotions. I watched her play at the Canadian Woman's Open last year and she had stumbled coming in and on 18 she had a snit on her face and sulking...I still think she looked hot however.

You are right. When she is playing well, as she was at the Wegman's in 2007 when I saw her, with Natalie in the group right behind, she was beaming. She gave out autographs to everyone. The same was true in the practice round at the Women's Open at the Newport, R. I., Country Club. She posed for pictures and was very friendly. When things are not going well, she can pout!

The older women I'm not as "worried" about... we know a lot of them have game and some grit, I just don't want to see the younger ones wilt under pressure as it seems like the Korean women handle pressure a touch better than the US girls. Don't get me wrong... I don't dislike the Korean girls or anything, I just want some of the American girls (especially the good looking ones) to step up their game... it would be good for the tour.

Same here. I dont dislike the Koreans, I just want to see the Americans do better.

Plain and simple though, the Koreans simply work harder on their game and it shows. Now that Ai Mitazato is playing in the LPGA, it got even more difficult for the likes of Creamer and Gulbis to win on a regular basis.

You are right, and here are two comments related to what you wrote:

1. When Se Ri Pak came to the US, I remarked how she had such strong legs. Then I read how her strict Dad had made her run up and down the many flights of stairs at the apartment building where they lived to strengthen her legs for golf. He had determined that golf was the way for her to go, and prepared her for a professional career. He saw the potential for her to make "big bucks". The golf academies in Korea take the training of their students very seriously and know that a lot of money is at stake. 2. Some of our young stars, like Cristie, Paula, Natalie, and Laura Diaz are good looking and are offered huge endorsement contracts for make-up, clothing, sunglasses (Paula has designed her own), etc. There are only 24 hours in a day, and if time is spent on photo shoots (remember Natalie's calendars?) and other commitments, it leaves less time for practice. It is a tough balancing act, and let us face it---what good looking girl would not like to be on the covers of magazines, have her own reality show (eg. Natalie's on The Golf Channel), and do modeling? It takes discipline on their part to make sure the outside interests do not take precedence over "getting the job done" on the practice range and practice putting green. Golf is like other professions---you get out of it what you put into it.

I think Paula will win four times with one being a major. Her getting upset when things are not going well to me are a positive. It's not like Tiger is joyful when shots don't come off as planned so a little fire is not a bad thing. I am always fascunated when Natalie's name is brought up in the same sentence with Paula, Kerr, Diaz, ect. What has this girl done that makes people think she is that good? She looks great but come on. Until she starts winning on a regular basis and gets somewhere near the top ten in the world rankings can we stop heaping the unwarrented praise on her.

    • Because everyone gets bored of blue skies now and again! Crazy winds and serious mood-lighting! First hole has the signature lighthouse behind the green and a great linksy fairway, second is a 114 yard par three that played about 140 yesterday.  
    • A good afternoon of birthday practice yesterday. Did a lot of short game work and went out to the course way after the last tee time to put them in practice in 'real' situations. Finally I did a nice putting drill to gauge areas to focus on - this will be a bit of a regular thing that I go back to now and again to judge progress. A few photos from on-course work: Downwind - 15mph and dispersion from shots at 125 yards, 115, 100 and 75. Nearly pulled the wedge from 75 into a bunker, which would have been horrendous, so that's a bit worse than it looks. Delighted with the rest and all on the middle tier of a three tier green. After about 10 minutes of practising, from 50 yards using a variety of clubs (furthest to nearest) - putter, wedge, hybrid chip. Had to come up a big tier, so pretty pleased with this. Hybrid chip was the right play in that it took the tier out of play, but my default would have always been wedge. Just nice to add another shot to my game - although it will need more practice. Putting: Just need to make more inside 10 feet. Great not to have any 3 putts though! Hole Ft Break Score 1 Score 2 Score 3 Score 4 Score 5 1.         3ft Straight 1         2.         6ft R/L uphill 1         3.         9ft L/R downhill 2         4.         12ft R/L downhill 2         5.         15ft L/R 2         6.         4ft slight break downhill 1         7.         8ft R/L 2         8.         12ft L/R 2         9.         16ft L/R downhill 2         10.     20ft L/R uphill 2         11.     5ft slight break 2         12.     10ft L/R 2         13.     15ft R/L 2         14.     20ft Straightish 1         15.     25ft Double Break 2         16.     6ft R/L downhill 2         17.     33ft Slight uphill 2         18.     45ft Slight downhill 2         Total 32         Strokes Gained -2.81        
    • 26/2/17 - more slow takeaway work. Heading to the range later and will spend time really working on transitioning this work to full swing. I think the feel needs to be that my left arm is glued to my stomach, but will check with video later.
    • Thank you! Got out for a few holes so it was a good day in spite of work!
    • 2/25: Played two rounds today with dad at a different course than usual. Shot 96 and 93. A few nice strings of pars and made several amazing putts (). Mostly bogeys other than that but managed a couple of absolute blow-up holes in each round that helped to guarantee 90+ scores from an otherwise very nice day of golf. I could complain about "sand-traps" sans-a-single-spec-of-sand with 10-foot wide puddles in them, or mushy fairways, or waiting 5-minutes for the 4-some in front of you on every shot, but there wasn't a notes field on the scorecard.  Practice is paying off, though. Hit my drives farther than ever, draws when I wanted them, and the fade didn't let me down when I needed it. 3/4 "flighted" shots are the new go-to approach of choice all the way out to 160+ with my 3-iron, and (n)GIRs have jumped up considerably. I've rambled on about my short-game improvements before, but it continues. Holed a pitch shot from about 10 yards and stopped 2 others 6 inches from the pin. Gotta play some more rounds from the front so I get used to stringing pars together. Realized today that I don't just get nervous about it, I also get cocky. Weird combination.
