Congratulations goes out to Stacy Lewis for winning the 2012 Rolex Player of the Year Award. Stacy is the first American player to win this award since Beth Daniel in 1994. After winning the Mizuno Classic last week, Stacy followed that up with a fourth place finish this week to clinch the title. She will go into next week's final event with a 53 point lead over Inbee Park. A first place finish is worth 30 points. Stacy finished 4 strokes behind Cristie Kerr.

The win for Cristie Kerr was her first in almost 2 1/2 years. It was the second consecutive win for an American player. It was also the 8th win by an American player, assuring them of at least a tie for most wins this year. Although shut out the last four weeks, South Korea has also had a fine season with seven wins.

Here is the list of tournament winners by country:

This would be a big deal if it weren't the LPGA. :(

Stacy's a great girl, her instructor is a good guy, and I wish her continued success. I root for her more than anyone else I can think of on the LPGA Tour. She seems to work at her game and seems less concerned with her nails or outfits, and I think that's sorely lacking among many of the other U.S. gals.

But Erik, didn't you know personal hygiene is critically important for these gals?  Having a dry bed of cuticles can lead to injury.  You know... Hang nails.

I certainly think Stacy Lewis is deserving and I root for her all the time.  Given the physical difficulties she has had to overcome to play golf I think she is remarkable.  I believe if some of the other American women on tour had Stacy's determination the win percentages for America would be different than they are.  I am not trying to diminish the accomplishments of the foreign LPGA golfers.  They work hard and are very good.  But I somehow don't get the feeling that many of the American LPGA golfers have the same fire in the belly that Stacy and most of the foreign LPGA golfers have.  Not sure why.

    • If you do get a new putter, get fit first. Try a bunch out at a golf store and see what kinds you like first. Then find a good fitter to get your numbers down, length, lie, loft and overall weight. Heavier putters can help with distance control for some folks. Also, a different grip size may help even if n your current putter. For distance control, having a consistent rhythm helps. In my visit to Erie, Erik had me work on increasing my rhythm a bit because I was a bit too slow and it varied. I have a tempo app on my phone and set my rhythm to 2/4 time at 72 bpm. When I practice putting, I first work on my rhythm for short, medium and long putts. Then I work on read and start line. This drill can help too.  
    • Day 68, August 1, 2021:  My backswing is still too long. I’m trying to get it shorter I look at it on film and it’s way too long, did some pitching length swing length feeling swings, so it’s probably half to three quarter length backswing.
    • I think he’s making a huge assumption that something he feels makes him do something, will translate to anyone else. I think tips like these come from instructors who confuse the concept of what’s natural anatomy wise isn’t natural function wise if that makes sense.
    • Vantage Point, par. It's nearly a birdie, but I can only assume Zoe Saldana dies, so… needed more loose ends tied up. Actually, I'm not 100% certain of everyone's ties. Whose brother is who? What? Huh? Maybe I just didn't pay close enough attention.
    • Thank you; in retrospect, although it now seems obvious, I (obviously) had no idea that the range needed mowing and other care. [Now what about the choice of Sunday?]
