My choice is Stacy Lewis because she is such a tough competitor. She never gives up!

My favorite is the one with the shortest skorts on. Why is pretty obvious. :-P:-P

My second choice is Gerina Piller. She is good-looking, and improves every year. She has one of the best smiles on Tout.

Me too but because she told everyone to "stuff it" when they said she should quit school and play full time. The golf analysts on the idiot box were the worst! Good for you, Michelle!  You stuck to you guns, finished your degree and yet still managed to go out and win.

Good post. Michelle went through Hell, and then proved her critics WRONG!!

Can't argue with that logic.

Wie.  She's the only player who can get me to stop down for an LPGA event when in contention.  Unfortunately, she hasn't been there enough to date.  Hoping for a successful 2016 for her.

Lewis for her heart. 

Sei Young Kim for finding amazing ways to win.  She's a risk taker.  Does not believe in laying up.

NY Choi for her smooth swing.

Lydia Ko is the Tiger of LPGA.

Wie for her pornish putting.

Korda, a Popeye's GF lookalike.

Shen Shen Feng & In Bee Park remind me of a statue of Buddha.  Both are sublime players.

In Ji Chun - likely the rookie of the year in 2016. 

There's a lot to like in LPGA.

My favorite player is Lydia Ko, who has demonstrated the correct way to make the transition from a young phenom to a superstar without letting her parents screw her up. 

My least favorite is Michelle Wie, for doing just the opposite.

Lexi Thompson. I like her swing (even though parts of it are unique), it's fun to watch how far she hits it and I like her personality. Oh and she's pretty cute.

Diegling

Props for accurate historic reference. I think that Paul Runyan also advocated the Diegle approach for putting and chipping yips, though the anchoring part is now against the rules.

Can't argue with that - very sincere genuine engaging smile. I like her combination of clearly fierce competitive intensity offset by a respectful, courteous manner. Lots of heart. Will enjoy seeing her as a Solheim stalwart in years to come. I'll bet she makes a great mom if / when she goes that route.

Lydia Ko - for her ability and attitude

She seems to make it look effortless. Jealous.

 

I like lots  of others too - depends on the arc of their story / the tournament at the moment. Admire Stacy's grit, but find her public persona / style of play less engaging than say Lexi.

Have to give nods to Mo Martin for her plucky underpowered win at the Ladies Open Champ and Shanshan for her extremely gracious response in defeat.

Last year I went to the LPGA tournament held at Aviara in the San Diego area.  The overall vibe on the LPGA tour seemed more casual and more friendly to me.  At the 16th tee box, Lydia pulled out of her golf bag some mixed fruit in a Tupperware like container and offered some to her fellow competitors.  She seemed very friendly, just like a group of friends out for a round of golf.  She also seems pretty humble considering her accomplishments.  And... this kind of attitude sure doesn't seem to hurt her playing.

Lydia Ko. She's just a kid but has so much talent. As others have mentioned, a very unassuming and easy going attitude, yet she wins lots of tournaments.

    • I agree, I can feel it too.  But you get used to it pretty quickly and then you don’t even think of it.
    • What loft was he using on those heads?  The Flash is a low spin head, I forget what the TS2 is.  With an 85 mph clubhead speed I’d be as concerned about the head as I am the shaft.  The Flash also has the weights, how are those set up? FWIW my son is also small... older than your son but he is 5’even and 80lbs.  He hits a Ping G SFT 12 degree with a senior shaft.  Hits it about 225 yards with a tight little draw.  He has always had a draw anyway.    I didn’t mind getting him the SFT because he plays it at full length and the SFT feature would enable him hitting a draw with a shaft that’s too long so he would get some distance.
    • So I haven't been pleased with my putting lately.  It just seems like I have been fighting it on the backswing, and that is throwing me off. So I thought I would pull out a bunch of putters. like many people have and weigh them and see what the balance turned out to be.  This is not scientific since I am using a Taylormade Monza IB Spider as the baseline weight and using a digital scale.  I realize this only gives me overall static weight of the putter and not the head weight.  I'm just guessing at that since they all have small pistol grips.  The IB weighed 537gr and has a spec of 350gr headweight.  It has a slight toe balance. 1930's Burke 15oz, 90* toe balance (Found in my parent's garage as a kid and actually used it a long time ago because I thought it was cool). 1985 Taylormade TPA V 488gr 17-1/4oz, guess 300gr HW slight toe (First real putter that I used for a long time... Nevada Bob's). 1990's Teradrops TD-xx 504/508 17-3/4oz, guess 315/320gr HW slight toe (Drank the roll face kool-aid a few years ago, they do roll nice). 2008 Adams Mallet 523gr 18-1/2oz, guess 335gr HW face balance (Got this after wife took my IB, I loved this putter before Jim Jones got a hold of me... back in the bag). I have others, the 80's are around the same weight (slight toe, except one that is about 80*) and I have a Teardrop RFD that is "toe up" by 30* and is almost 19-1/2oz-360gr HW.  It is super stable... but boy I hate that one. I realize that my list is really low budget and most people wouldn't be caught dead with any of them.  But this was kind of an exercise in looking back at the years and also have some baseline for me.  I don't buy a lot, but I realize that I've picked up too much of the same that isn't working, at least for my current setup.

    • I get it.  But the bottom line is, that just because it’s on the cart path, the actual procedure doesn’t change at all from any other drop.  That’s why you’re not finding anything.  There’s no difference in the procedure at all.
