[QUOTE=LoJo;142284]This is the worst Golf Channel coverage EVER!!! First we had the PGA Tour delay which screwed up the early round coverage. Then the Sat coverage was on at 12:30 AM!!! And now some boring Web.com tour playoff!!!

LPGA cannot catch a break![/QUOTE]

No LoJo....the Saturday coverage bagan at 2:00a.m. The PGA didn't end until 1:00a.m., and then Kelly Tilghman came on for an hour. I was so pi$$ed
I went to bed.

Yeah....I read your earlier post about that. I should have said was SUPPOSED to start at 12:30 a.m. Sheesh. I didn't even bother to stay up until 12:30 a.m....glad I didn't!

Honestly, I know a lot of golfers....men and women....avid golfers and golf fans. I don't know ONE person who watches the Web.com Tour. They have to have a smaller audience than the LPGA. Have to! So then, WHY does TGC think anyone, other than family and close friends of the players, is interested in a playoff on that tour? Especially when you have a compelling tournament going on the LPGA with a top class leaderboard and a young Lydia Ko in the lead, and several Solheim hotshots on her heels?

I am sure of one thing about Lydia Ko and turning pro. The only reason she hasn't turned pro is the fact that an old guy with lots of money is paying her expenses via a golf association of which she is the primary beneficiary.
Some of you know who he is but here is a reminder.

EDMONTON, AB - AUGUST 25: Lydia Ko of New Zealand poses with her trophy and two members of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police following her five stroke victory during the final round of the CN Canadian Women's Open at Royal Mayfair Golf Club on August 25, 2013 in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.
And those two members of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police are Putter and Mr3Putt.lol

Not that I agree with them being out there before 18, but given the precedent set for Thompson, there is no way they can deny Ko heading straight to the Tour after repeating in Canada if that is her choice. Youngest ever to repeat in a Tour event. What a great effort.

Lydia jumps to number 7 in the Rolex Ranks with only 22 events.
I know Lydia qualified for the Titleholders but has she used all of her sponsor's exemptions for this year?

But that would not be an exemption so it does not matter. She is in.

Didn't I just say that she qualified for the Titleholders? I was wondering if she had any exemptions left to use for other events.

Thought you were saying that she can't play the Titleholders because she has no exemptions left.
