The greatest ever, male or female? I don't see this happening but if it does I'm sure she will get the recognition she deserves.

I have problem with name recognition and the golger, especilly with asians but also with europens and some young yanks.  Don't have trouble with Creamer, Gulbis.  Just more exposure. Tseng needs a better agent.

Maybe some big fake boobs will help her name get out there.

How could you not see this happening?  She won 11 times this year and at 22 she already has 5 majors.  What about this doesn't make you think she that she won't be the greatest ever?  I don't think she will get any recognition until she retires.

I agree that she could be the greatest ever if you are referring to her respective, LPGA, sport.  I think Tiger could beat her though....but

But in terms of respective leagues, defiently could happen, those numbers are incredible.  Wouldnt suprise me one bit.

But in the end of the day......Who really cares about the LPGA                  (please dont get affended by this) more of a joke than anything...but still true lol

As you are clearly from a non-English speaking background, you probably don't really understand that the LPGA has a long history  - 60 years, in fact.

Just because it doesn't relate to your culture, it doesn't mean no-one cares about it. Perhaps not in your country, but Koreans and Americans do, I promise you that.

If ever you visit the United States you should go to a tournament. You might be surprised.

Probably the other 50% of the population, at least.

As you know in golf, just because you beat someone on any given day, week, whatever, doesn't necessarily mean you are a better player.  In golf someones success is heavily weighted on the number of majors they have won.  I think Yani will have more majors than any other pro golfer (female or male) when her career is done.

She may have a better record than Tiger, but it'll be against other women. It's hard to believe that, person vs person, she'll be the best player. If Tiger, Phil, or any other big name male played the women's tournaments, they would probably be racking up wins like crazy, even from a young age.

I totally agree, winning under pressure is a very big part of golf. Because as we all know golf is 90% mental and the other 10% is mental.  To be the best, you have to beat the best in the most pressure situations, which are majors.  I think she will too....

How is writing like that "joking"?

Why would you want people to think that you can't write in English?

Fair enough if you are French Canadian, I suppose. Sorry if French is your main language.

    • Mattm16... by any chance does the "16" that follows your moniker refer to your age?  If so, that could explain a lot.  I was cocky, sure of myself, hardheaded and knew much, much more than everyone who was older than me when I was 16.
    • Exactly - the notion that opinions deserve "equal time" seems pervasive.  If 99.9% of credible scientists believe something and 3% of people with no education "think" something (with nothing to back them up) they demand that their "opinion" be respected. Without any sense of irony, @mattm16 acknowledges that he "thinks" certain things but cannot justify them. He actually said the following - could there possibly be a more anit-intellectual admission? "I don't have facts to back up what I think.  I just think certain ways."  @mattm16 2021  
    • "There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge." -- Isaac Asimov

    • I know four that have died, two in the last 10 days. How many people do you know that have had small pox? Polio?  The answer is none because we’ve eliminated it with vaccines. People survived those diseases too, but it killed millions.
