I like Yani to win but it's not really going out on a limb. I would like to see Kerr, Creamer, and Petterson in the mix. Someone needs to step up to the female Tiger in the making!

Michelle Wie needs to step it up.

Good call on Wie. She could dominate with her length. FWIW, I'm going with Stacy Lewis.

Was watching it today. Kinda boring. Weather delays, previously recorded play. Not much flow to the broadcast. No big names near the top, well Miyazato I suppose is a big name, and mini Kim I.K. But no Tseng, Wie, Petterson. Beautiful setting though!

Yeah it's a shame because if the weather held out and one big name could make a run it would have been a good watch. Although I don't know for a fact but I've heard it's common for thunderstorms to pop up quite often in colorado this time of year. Now even if a big name makes a run it won't draw much attention with a monday finish. The course looks awesome though I'm sure it would be a nice round.

They're used to the really easy courses and they even play those slowly. Put them on a more difficult course with green speeds above 9 and a little undulation and you get... this.

They're going to finish today, though they didn't regroup after the third round, so the leaders are all over the place. A couple of Koreans are at the top, Kerr and Stanford carrying the American banner right there with them, the Miyazatos having bad third rounds but still in it, Park, Webb and Creamer not far behind, and Yang, Shin, and Tseng making big runs up the leaderboard early on.

Did I say they were going to finish? Just as I did, the storms returned to the Broadmoor, and there will be a Monday finish after all. It's not going to be a very exciting one, either, as Hee Kyung Seo, the leader at 3-under, is already in the clubhouse, and only three players have any realistic chance of catching her. Fellow Korean So Yeon Ryo is at 2-under with three holes to play, Cristie Kerr is 1-under with two holes to play, and Angela Stanford is at even par with four holes to play. All signs point to a Women's Open champion being crowned without playing a single stroke tomorrow, which is the absolute worst case scenario that could be envisioned for the USGA and the LPGA Tour. The ladies can't buy a good break these days, and that really sucks.

    • Might be slow, but I'm sorta liking these guys...
    • Slow play is not keeping up with the group in front, unless its a group of really fast players.   The question is how to remedy it.  I play with guys who shoot high 70’s low 80’s whose pre-shot routines are intermidable.  In addition they are elderly and just move slow.  So as the young-un in the group I rush, especially on the green.  They play from the correct tees, it just takes them forever to go thru their routine.   Yesterday I played as a single.  Arrived at the course at 3 and was told to be off before 5 due to league play. I finished in 92 mins and played thru two other groups.  My goal is to not 3 putt and no 7’s on the card.  Shot 85. High scores does not automatically mean slow play.  
    • Day 63, July 27, 2021: Three-quarter swing work again today, hey I may lose a little bit of distance, but I know where the ball is going. Rinse, Repeat, keep working on it kind of deal. I’m having small successes with the 3/4 swing so something must be working.
    • Day 153.  Before grocery shopping, I stopped at a putting green and worked for half an hour on 3' and 30' putts.  The end of the 3' practice included taking 17 shots to finish all 12 for my clock drill (not great, but not as bad as a month ago) and the 30' finished with my final six putts from 30' (due to this green, they weren't significantly different on the clockface, so I'm still getting a similar read, but I know better than to assume it.  And of course, I had to hit them the right speed) with a total of 11 strokes (five 2-putts and I also sank one). After lunch and before gym, I did the quarantine days 9 (again, with feedback from yesterday) + 10 (which took a while to get right... I'm not even sure I got it right, video to show up later today). Addendum:  I haven't figured out my trigger for the day 10 practice plan.  That's going to take me a bit more thought
    • MD: 89 (Black/Orange combo tees): 89. Up and down sandy on 17th was nice. One of my better sand shots of the week.  SV: 98 (Black tees).. Tough day. Bit too much of a course for me from black tees. Drive on 18 uphill was a bright spot that stood out though.  SV: 89 (Orange tees).. phew.. much better. 2nd shot on 16 uphill from 198 out over bunker with a borrowed 3 iron (thanks @DeadMan.. :-)) that dropped and stopped within a two feet for a kick-in might be the shot of the week for me.  LL: 92, 92 back-to-back on the same day. Tried my darndest hard to break 90 but couldn't twice. Best shot 8 iron on 7th par 3 from 155 for a bird.  Lac La Bell: 107. Forgettable day score-wise except for holes 15-16 where I finally hit couple of good drives.
