Don't remember that particular incident, so I can not comment on it directly.

However, as a caddie you have to balance giving your advice to the player and being too forcefull in making your point. You are there to advise, not to tell the player what to do.

My friend lives in Lake Nona so I tend to believe that story.

When I talked to Dave before the tournament, he said that he thought it was only a one week stint with Yani. He sure made the most of it.

You'd think Yani might have wanted to reconsider the length of their stint after the good outcome.

True, she didn't have a good outing, but the tournament structure there is bogus. Yani gets knocked out playing three matches against Brittany Lincicome, Angela Stanford, and Brittany Lang. Meanwhile Amanda Blumenherst is in a three-way tie for first place having faced the brutal competition of Sophie Gustafson, Mariah Stackhouse, and Beatrice Recari.

Shouldn't the top seed in the field play the bottom seed?

Nothing personal against Amanda (or Yani) but WTF?

Well, in that case, Yani might want to look him up for the next major.

The mistake you are making,here,is in equating this hideous amalgam of tourism commercial and beauty contest with any kind of athletic,competitive endeavour.

Glad to be of service...
