2013 CME Group Titleholders Discussion Thread

17 posts in this topic

~~A big congratulations goes out to Lexi Thompson for winning last week's Loreno Ochoa Invitational. It was Lexi's second victory in her last four starts. At the age of nineteen, Lexi has now joined those few elite players on the LPGA who will be making a run at becoming #1 in 2014. This week the LPGA moves to Naples, Florida for the CME Group Titleholders. This is the final tournament of the 2013 season.

Here are the key details:

This will be our first opportunity to see Kydia Ko endorse the winner's check as this is her first 'pro' tourney. Will she be a 'multi-millionaire' before age 18 too? GOKO!

I like how the LPGA groups their stars together in the same pairings. Awesome that Pettersen, Stacy Lewis, and Inbee Park are together as well as Jessica Korda, Lydia Ko, and Michelle Wie. This adds intrigue.

He's good! and...barely. I have new hours at work that start at 6am (I'm usually a night owl) so I'm getting about 4 hours a sleep a night. Huge change.

I just made a thread of his 1st month.

I looked at some of the stats for the players in this tourney and was surprised at some of the short driving averages, like 235 after 2 rounds. The best i saw was 265 or so. But what i did not find was how these numbers were calculated. Mostly, how many drives on each day to make the average. Anyone know?

They just take the average drive on two par 5 holes. If you hit a tree on one of them, it will severely lower your average.

Since the PPGA site does not tell us what course this tourney is played on, nor any details of the length of the course, does anyone know?  Tiburon resort offers 2 courses and 4 sets of tees for each course, so that's a possible 8.  Distances for these 8 tee boxes range from 7200 yrds to 5500 yrds.

As far as driving averages, if on those 2 par 5s, if both drives go into the rough, the driving average is zero. Or is the rough OK?

    • Hmm, where have I heard that a DUI arrest is a medical issue before? Oh yeah, when his agent was arrested for DUI: http://www.golf.com/tour-and-news/tiger-woods-agent-mark-steinberg-arrested-drunken-driving-charges Color me skeptical. Not that it really matters. A DUI for an "unexpected reaction" to medication, which probably has a warning on it not to drive when taking it, is just as serious as a DUI for alcohol. If he's going through personal issues, I hope he sorts through them. But he shouldn't get a free pass because alcohol was not involved.
    • I figured it was meds, and while it still bothers me, i'm not as dissapointed as I was when I thought it was alcohol, just because I know how meds can affect you without even realizing it. I went through third degree burns to my left leg, and I did the same thing as him (though I wasn't caught or charged) for a few days thinking I was fine, before once becoming suddenly very tired at the wheel, I mean nodding off like a heroin addict. I had to pull into a parking lot and call some friends to come pick up me and my truck. I didn't drive again until I was off the meds. But it was a reaction I wasn't expecting. I had been tired throughout the ordeal after my surgeries, but I thought it was just my body telling me I needed rest. I had no experience with pain meds, or the anti-anxiety (Clonazepam or some such drug) meds they gave me after my workplace accident, and didn't know how they were affecting me.    I'm not defending Tiger, just like i'm not defending what I did. Had I been caught, I would have rightly been charged, just like Tiger.    And if you think driving at 3am post-surgery when you've slept most of the day and can't sleep at night is something out of the ordinary, I don't know what to tell you. I still go for a drive in the middle of the night when I can't sleep sometimes.  And in Tigers case, he is apparently also a known insomniac. 
    • Uhhhh…? You can have a different reaction weeks into a set drug regimen. Plenty of other factors can change. Dosage. Lack of sleep. Diet. The specific times you take things. I don't much care either way (he should not drive impaired - that puts others in danger) as it's off-course stuff, but I still like facts and dislike speculation.
    • From Sat: 1 - 3 putt 9 - 2 putts 8 - 1 putts I call that a pretty good day with the chicken stick!
    • Haven't been to a driving range yet this year and went out to play my first round of the year on Sat.  No warm up just right to the first tee and bam, nice lil fade to about 100 yards.  Drop it to 4' and I am putting for a birdie!  WOW!  What a way to start. Second hole I pared, third hole I pared as well!  What is going on I thought?  Bogey most of the other holes with a real bad triple but end the front with another par.  42 on the front is looking good! Play about the same on the back with a lot of bogeys and 3 more pars and end with a 43. 85 my first time out this year was sweet!  Only missed 1 fairway and was 14 & 15 for putting.
