LKo wins  tourney in Daly City, California in playoff with MPressel.  Hot BHenderson of Canada, only 17 yrs, takes 3rd place alone.  Ko just finished 18 th birthday party so not much older than BH.

Ko hit it close and sank the putts, that's the story.  Payout for Ko $300k.

Brooke played fine throughout and should be rightly proud of her contending and placement.  It is difficult to finish the deal the first time. The experience gained will stand her in good stead. Expect her to break through this year. And I also expect that she will be full time LPGA in 2016 perhaps not even going through   Q school.  Between you, me, and the graveyard, she is our hope for the Olympics in 2016.

Morgan Pressel had two chances to win on the 18th hole: one during the regulation and one on the first playoff hole.  But, alas, it wasn't meant to be.  Great finish by Ko though.  It's amazing what she has done at the age of barely 18.

Luv that!  Studette.  Once upon a time we had 'cheesecake', then when men took of some clothes to model,  we had 'beefcake'.  Now, studette, implying a female stud.  I strongly suspect LKo is a very normal 18 yr old female who happens to excel at a complex motor skill and enjoys the pressure of competition.   Go Girl.

This is referring to Lydia's next tournament...

"No. 1 Lydia Ko announced in her AM press conf that she'll donate her winnings at this wk's event to Nepal Earthquake relief."

Way to go, Ko!

She looks like the next Sorenstam or Ochoa.    After Ochoa, players could not hold on to #1 rankings for long, relatively speaking I mean.  In those years, A Miyazato, Shin, Yani, Stacy, Park, all had their turns but they could not extend their reign for more than a year or two.  Ko looks like she can go 10 years being in #1 unless something happens.

    • Yup, when i switch from my maltby PTMs which have a lot less offset to the Ping G irons, i have to take extra care to ensure that it is pointing in the right direction --- otherwise it tends to point to the left. I have some markings on my grips which helps ensure the grip/alignment is consistent. 
    • Golf is just a difficult game because of the required precision needed to hit strait-isn shots when the downswing is a fraction of a second in duration.  Golf rule are made because they are fair and for the most part simple to understand. This means, there are not 100 different situations for one rule. Which is good. None of your examples are anything to complain about regarding the rules. Honestly, you don't encounter those situations that much to say it make golf excessively hard. 
    • I have encountered much reluctance to play by USGA rules that make the game "too hard". Examples are no automatic two-putts on temporary greens, balls that are lost because they embedded are still lost, bare ground is not GUR, mud is not temporary water, penalty relief area may be on a cart path, no relief from divots, no relief from boundary fence, no line of play relief from immovable obstructions, etc. 
    • Thanks for sharing, I enjoyed the read. Playing your own game is important.  Many years ago, there was a woman at my home club who would play from the blue tees, hit her drives about 230, and would shoot in the high 70s/low 80s.  It was fun being paired with her because... well, playing with good players is always fun, but I also enjoyed watching men who couldn't handle being outdriven by her try to hit the ball further, mostly unsuccessfully.  I knew I couldn't compete with her for distance (and I don't think I was ever competing against her anyway), but that really helped.  As for the safe shot vs correct shot, I think the driver is the right club a lot more often than many think it is.  Fairways hit are overrated in most golfers' minds and distance from the tee is underrated as a contributor to scoring.
