I know. In essence, we were basically talking about whether her performance was exceptional or not and I realized you backed off. In my last post, I was responding to that other poster who tried to say my point was invalid simply because I gave O'toole credit for 1/2 point less than she earned, which was pretty silly.

But, going back to our original discussion, you didn't use that qualifier, "4 or more matches" in your OP. You said undefeated as a rookie, which has happened 4 times in the previous 3 Solheim Cups. But, even if you want to now use the qualifier, as I said before, in just the previous SC in 2009 Michelle Wie played in 4 matches, went undefeated and earned 3.5 points to lead her team, which also won the Cup.



Even though there is at least one other player who's done it, and one quite recently, the list is relatively short, so "unusual" might still fit. If he'd said "unheard of" or "unprecented" I could see the sticking point. Since I never read the entire thread I shouldn't comment further, but just throwing that out there.
