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 believe I heard Joe Rogan talk that some MMA fighters use it during training. Not heavy use, but a lower dosage, and there seems to be benefit. I can't remember his exact quote on it, but I believe it was about marijuana since he is big on its legalization.   
    • No idea. Guess we have to wait and see. It's probably my favorite comic of all time. Haven't read it in a while, though, probably going to do it again now with the show running. Every time I re-read it I catch something I missed the last time. There were subtle details and clues explaining the setting. I didn't catch everything and some stuff I felt might have been shown for a reason (like the picture in the chief's closet as he was getting into his uniform) I didn't understand the significance of. Honestly the only thing I didn't like was that weird comic book block lettering Oklahoma! quote they used as a transition in the opening scene. The network kind of ruined that show by making it run longer than the showrunners intended, didn't they? My memory on it is a little hazy, but I remember that being a factor, and I believe they were writing the show as they went along that made it the convoluted mess it ended up being. My guess is that it's a byproduct of the event created by Ozymandias. Maybe they'll explain it more during the season. He's a British actor known for being the voice of Scar in The Lion King (1994)  I've been trying to avoid reading spoilers about the show, but my best guess is he is playing Adrian Veidt (Ozymandias). There was a newspaper headline in one of the scenes that said "Veidt Confirmed Dead" or something to that effect, so I have no idea how it all goes together. Seems to me like he's the same character. He didn't get caught. The US won the Vietnam War in the Watchmen world and it won Nixon a lot of popularity. He was still president during the events of the comic in 1985. That's Dr. Manhattan. He's a central character in the Watchmen. Not sure what his role will be in the series, if any. That explains a lot.
    • Buckeye... will you be there to explain to my head pro why there's a chalkline on his practice putting green?  😊
    • I'd be curious to know what the performance enhancing benefits of marijuana are. I am absolutely stupid, anxious, and 100% athletically uncoordinated under the influence of marijuana, so I can't imagine playing golf in this state. Of course, this varies from person to person. Aside from coffee, I don't enjoy the effect of any mind altering substance, so I rarely partake. However I don't have anything against those who choose to use legally or illegally, and at my home course I see plenty of people puffing on joints, taking whiskey shots, and then some. I also don't have any confidence in the anti-doping agencies to regulate use of PED in any sports, but I believe professional athletes are responsible for understanding the rules of their organization and adhering to them, even if the rules are dumb.
