Buzzer, like Heddwyn, I knew what you were saying. It's just hard for some people to give credit to Annika for anything, I guess. Or Sirak, for that matter.

Both Luke & Annika play golf professionally...you know...for money...on different but similar associations.

Heddwyn gets the award for being able to decipher the apparently enigmatic post FIRST.
As one of our friends would say, Heddwyn....."Sheesh!"

Viva Annika
My apologies for not being as smart as you and Heddwyn, but Sheesh back to you.
I knew you exactly what you meant. Your post was not enigmatic, it was just based on faulty logic. It's not valid to make any kind of comparison between the LPGA and the LET in 1995 and the PGA Tour and men's European Tour in 2011.

It's the same silly logic people use when they comparing Yani's five major wins at age 22 with anyone's major wins on the PGA Tour. Different tour, different tournaments, different years, different scenarios.

This does not mean that Annika's or Yani's accomplishment are less impressive than anyone's on the men's tour. They're just very different.

If you included the PGA in 1995...Annika wasn't the first to win the title. She probably made less money than half of the members of the PGA in 1995! On the other hand, Luke Donald...did it handedly both the PGA and the European tour in 2011. The article clearly states that he was the first to do it for THE PGA AND EUROPEAN TOUR! AND NOT FOR THE LPGA AND THE LET TOUR! SO THERE'S NOTHING WRONG ABOUT THE ARTICLE WHICH YOU SAY NEEDS TO BE CORRECTED!

Of course you'd agree with the former judge. You're his sidekick. That's why in Xman's contests you two always end up in the basement together. If the Buzzer was the Lone ranger, you'd be Tonto. If he was Batman, you'd be Robin. And if he was George Bush, you'd be Tony Blair! In other words, if he'd tell you to jump into a pond full of piranha fish, you'll jump without asking him why!








hehehehehehehehehehehe!

No, I just recruited her as my sidekick!
