  1. Thanks for posting these stats
  2. Am unable to warm towards her. Doesn't matter as lexi will blow past her to be the leading American player for years to come
  3. Wtf kuch. Three bogeys in your last three holes? Must have been hitting the bottle (of Talisker) after the turn
  4. Congrats lexi. Way to go. Looks like she's starting to fulfil her phenom potential unlike her compatriot ms Wei.
  5. Glad to see Henrik playing so well again after some years in the wilderness.
  6. Go Inbee. Hope she finishes ahead of Suzanne and Stacy so the biased press don't argue for a blond POY. If either Suzanne or Stacy had two let alone three majors, I wonder if they'd be looking for excuses for a Korean with only one major to be POY.
  7. There's one major difference here. For other sports, fans and therefore sponsors don't equate off field martial events with on field matters. No one claims that MJ or Kobe are any less a basketball player despite their marital woes. With Tiger, people are now calling him an on course cheat given his off course philandering. BC should know better but he's just playing to the crowd for his 15 minutes of fame. That's self serving and plain wrong.
  8. Who knows if he'll win another major or how many or when. I'm just thankful for being around to watch him win that first Masters all the way till now. It's been a hack of a ride. Thanks Tiger, it's been a blast . Wish you all the best and hope you get to at least 18.
  9. My key point on this issue is that Tiger must not let "sleeping dogs lie". He must call out BC. As you rightly point out, once something scandalous / titillating hits the media /Internet it gets repeated over and over again, arguments rage, facts gets twisted and soon no one can tell truth from fiction. This was the "discourse" that BC was hoping to generate. It's disgraceful to start a discourse with a blatant untruth.
  10. Yes, no one is calling for Tiger to be banned or suspended yet. But calling him a cheat diminishes his track record. It implies he may have won one or all of his majors or other pga and worldwide tourneys by cheating. It implies he won the Masters by 12 strokes or a US Open by 15 strokes through dishonest means. If not checked now, it plants a seed of doubt in some people's minds. That seed can grow and soon a lie becomes the "truth". Watch the movie Wag the Dog or Iraq's supposed WMD. If tiger doesn't stop BC's nonsense now, it can take a life of its own.
  11. Journo or not, BC had crossed the line. He should have been made to pay substantially for that mistake. After all, it seems that some others would like TW to be punished by much more than the allocated 2 strokes for a rules infringement. It's akin to saying that if Michael Jordon committed a "travel" offense he should be ejected from the game immediately. That should then be followed by a NBA special committee meeting and the result should be that MJ be banned for life.
  12. Stenson has been the form player since the Open Championship, and throughout the FedEx cup play offs. He's a deserving winner. Like Westwood, he's another great example of how a top 10 or 20 player in the world can completely lose his game but come back successfully. Well played, Sir.
  13. Lydia is sneaky long, outdriving Suzanne on many holes. That length will make her competitive on the LPGA. She needs to fix her putting to be more consistent. Great talent, bright future.
  14. Agreed that Rory is over hyped by the media and fans. He can't control how much people hype him up (though he does happily take in the sponsorship money that comes with that hype) so we can't really fault him for this. If anyone is to blame it's the golf media. It would appear that anyone who wins one tournament is suddenly due to win a major, if not more (eg CH3). Anyone who wins a major is automatically on course to win a few more (Freddie, DL3, GMac, Trevor Immelman, Adam Scott, Justin Rose). Then the media gets schizo and decides that a 14x major winner at age 37 will never win another tournament or major. I find it hard to blame the players when hype / opinion is outside their control.
  15. those South Africans have it sewn up ... 1) Ernie and 2) L. Oosthuizen and 3) SA born-turned-Englishman, Justin Rose.
