I can help edit or fill in gaps. I don't have that much time to write full bios from scratch. What's the format?

Rusty, I don't mean to be rude but wouldn't this be just a duplication of effort of information that's already available on the LPGA site?

There is a fair bit of duplication yes. But I thought it would be nice addition to the site. To add that plus extra information not on LPGA.com I usually get the information from the wiki or from other sources if there is little information and add a nice photo. I'll add some galleries at some point as well. They are fairly simple to add. You won't have to write a biography yourself unless you specially want to. Its just a matter of copy, paste, and format. Then adding a nice picture showing there face clearly.

I've written up a tutorial on how to add a biography if anyone is interested please let me know. Even if all you want to add is your favourite player every little bio helps.

Rusty... Maybe I am missing something. "Is this what you have in mind.

Pretty much you can see an example here

http://www.mylpga.com/forum/lpga-pla...ey-wright.html

Another reason why these are being added even though they are already on the lpga site is just to add some content to the site. These kind of posts get linked from other sites as well as recieve pretty good search engine rankings, bringing more people to the site.
