She is playing very well right now.  Could pick for the US Open.

There's not a lot of content in this thread. @Web Junky did you want to actually discuss these women and their accomplishments or just post a picture everytime someone becomes #1?

It seems as if only a couple of putts separate Inbee and Stacy.

Does it matter what I want? Is it not allowed to just post a picture every time someone becomes #1? :surrender:

You seem to be getting riled up.

His asking is showing you he cares what you want. That's all.

Odd that you would think I am not calm from reading this thread. All the special attention around here makes me want to not post very much at all, but maybe that was the feeling you all are trying to elicit. BTW, great answer from you in the Paige thread. Rude on the face of it, but maybe that was not your intention. "If you like golf, it's all good!"

Here's the deal, man, as plain as I can say it.

Someone asking you what you want from a thread is a good thing. It's a demonstration that they care what your intent is.

Paige is not currently a Tour player. For her to be one, she would have to be playing on a Tour. She's not - she's an analyst and a host and so on.

Nobody's trying to elicit any feelings. You seem to be over-reacting and taking everything as negatively as possible. I don't even know what you mean by "special attention."

Well, yea, you stared this thread. I just wanted to get a idea of what your intent was for it. [quote name="Web Junky" url="/t/74995/new-worlds-1-lady-golfer#post_1071321"] Is it not allowed to just post a picture every time someone becomes #1? [/quote]If that's what you really want, sure, but if you're not looking for discussion, I don't know why you need to do it on an internet forum. It'd be like me posting a picture on a thread everytime I changed my desktop wallpaper or something. Seriously, like @iacas said, there's no need to be defensive. I don't follow the LPGA Tour so I'd love to learn a thing or two, but the pictures really don't do anything for me.

I think that dress would actually look better on Inbee.

That is not a knock on the dress nor certainly on Stacy. I think Stacy would look great in something a little more tailored to show off her figure, and short enough to show off her legs. Still a classy and classic little black dress, but more little and more black. I can't decide about the hair, I don't know if the curls are natural, but she certainly has some hair. None of my business at all, just observations and preferences-she seems a class act.

As to the golf, I like them both. I prefer Stacy's style and tempo, but you can't argue Inbee's efficiency.

Is the LPGA on television this weekend?

No. Next week. Lorena Ochoa Invitational. Defending champion is Lexi Thompson.

LPGA this week in Japan, at Mizuno Classic.  3 rounds only and currently middle of round 2, near real time, JKorda shares lead at -6. SLewis not close. Inbee not in field, no Ko either.

There is a lot of volatility at the top of the LPGA rankings. I like that. Park, Lewis, Ko, and Wie among a few others will be fighting hard to get that number one spot. Keeping it for any stretch of time may be difficult. Next year will be fun to watch how it all plays out.

    • Indeed. The icicles are melting though, with the 4 ft long (I'm not kidding) daggers starting to fall from the roofs of the buildings on campus. I should have the opportunity to play sometime soon again.
    • These are myths that I hear a lot. Some are just eye rolling trivia but some can hurt. 1. Tour pros continuously vary their shot shape based on hole demand. Not true. They have one predominant shot shape they play almost all the time. Only when in jail or extreme condition do they actually try anything out of their comfort zone - which is smaller than most folks think. 2. Tour pros are like swing doctors. They know everything there is to know about the golf swing. Nope - they are simply phenomenal listeners and executors. 3. You must understand the swing in it's entirety to learn and become better - Yeah, good luck on that path.   4. To have lag just hold the angle of the shaft to forearm until impact. - Lag is a result of good mechanics and club position and path. Can't force it. 5. You must have a superlight grip pressure (2-3 on a scale of 1 to 10) to hit good shots. - While white knuckling is just bad, you do need more grip pressure than you think.
    •   The problem is the twitter length version, get it as close to the hole as possible, is easy to read as, hit the longest club.  Really the argument in LSW (backed by stats), is around a multi-faceted risk assessment.  Simplifying less than the twitter version, hit it as far as possible without bringing "too much" risk into play.  The long version is basically a law of total probability argument, where you assess the probability of various outcomes with each current shot choice, and weight them by the average shots to hole out given each outcome, and choose the lowest. For example, you're sitting at 250 on a par 5.  You go through the potential outcomes of an 8i and 3i and estimate average shots to hole out from each: on target, slightly off target, chunk, blade, in jail, in hazard, open look but super penal rough, OB, whatever.  Then you think about the chances of these outcomes, and calculate the total expected score from each choice. The point in LSW is that you can't go through a bunch of equations for every shot, but if you're accurate about your average shot dispersions across clubs, then the typical bogey or better golfer is often overestimating the increase in risk from going for the longer shot, and underestimating the decrease in expected number of shots to hole out from getting it closer. The rule of thumb is that if there's not something in the layout that is a big risk at the longer distance but not at the short one – so in your case lateral hazard or big fairway thinning or big fairway bunker or much or penal rough or the like that starts at 75 yards out – then generally your lower expected total score is from hitting the longer club.  The strokes you lose when you do hit an errant long iron but wouldn't have hit an errant short iron are more than made up for by the strokes you gain from having an approach half as long when you don't hit an errant shot. Of course, it's always case by case and player by player.
