I watched a few holes today. Wie and Pressel looked like they were a great team. I caught a few holes late in their round. They were both playing great and were feeding off each other. I was pumped watching it. I also say that bomb Creamer made. That putt was out of control. Looked good the entire time too.

Hey, its on Golf Channel now.

"150y to the flag - yeah i need 6i" huh???

what is wrong with that? As long as they get the job done who cares what club they use?

That and it's cool to watch players who hit their clubs as far as I do as well

One of my favorites golf quotes goes:

"Its not about how far, its about how many."

I have enjoyed the coverage so far. Being all tied going to singles should make tomorrow very exciting. Will be interesting to see what order Beth sends the girls out. As far as the comment about needing a 6i from 150 there is only one event where being able to hit it long matters. This isn't one of them. There is a guy that plays in our Saturday blitz that hit's it about that far and he shoots around par or better every week. Like someone else said it's not how far but how many.

I have been watching the Solheim Cup on and off since it began and I have to say, it's almost overdone. I think the competition is great and I want to see the USA win, but even my wife says she's annoyed with "cheek tats" and constant screaming. I mean it almost feels like I'm watching a High School state meet with rival schools, not the most awesome week of golf-watching I would have to say.

I'm really only watching it for the closeups of Creamer and I think my wife probably has figured that out.....that's what is probably annoying her.

I think its great, it's what's different outside the ropes between an lpga and pga tour event. Very fan and female friendly atmosphere. Kids under a certain age get in free and and numerous girls high school golf teams are screaming and cheering the USA on. The whole "cheek tat" thing stems from the many young players on the team...some of these girls only a few years out of high school, which is ok for now..but when they get to Juli Inkster's age you won't see that too much. Would you ever see Tiger and Phil do a "hip bump" like Paula and Christi did. Priceless

Interesting. I could have done ten different scenarios and none of them would have Gulbis going out last. Burying Inkster in the middle is good I think. She is putting terrible. Why do I think Helen Alfredsson will have an easy way of it with Michelle Wie?

I have watched nothing of this event, so I am guessing the tone here is one that says 'Gulbis isn't the best we have, and isn't playing well, so why would she be last'. The big reason is that more than likely the cup will be decided one way or another before her match ends so if she gets beat it won't matter.

Exactly, she is getting no TV coverage! Even with that, it's still a great event.

I logged into this thread JUST to say how obnoxious and embarrassing Christina Kim has been. Have some respect for your competitors. You can be enthusiastic, excited and even patriotic without these absurd antics from her. The constant Arsenio-Hall-like fist-pump whooping and screaming....it's poor sportsmanship. I'll go watch the NBA or the NFL if I see a bunch of 'look at me' attitude. I watch golf b/c it's SUPPOSED to be a sporting game.

    • F.D.A. Analyses Find Johnson & Johnson Vaccine Works Well - The New York Times F.D.A. studies show the shot strongly protects against severe illness and may reduce spread of... 72% in the US. One shot. 20M by the end of March. 100M by June.
    • " I asked for a return 2 days after I received it." Just wondering, why not 10 minutes after receiving it? I once ordere two LH drivers from 3ballsgolf on ebay (I'm in Australia). When they arrived, one had a massive dent in it and the other one was right handed. I sent them an email saying I didn't feel comfortable with these things flying around the world again. They refunded me and said I could keep them. Don't bag ebay - bag ebay SELLERS who are dishonest. Ebay is a fantastic place to buy and sell golf equipment.   "besides I have a month to claim but that doesn’t appear to apply if you don’t live in the USA" Nonsense. Of course you have a right to claim.
    • I have my swing on video from a lesson I took a few months ago and really disappointed in some swing issues, so much that I would be embarrassed to post it in here. I do hit the ball quite well, 12.7 hc, though.
