But, as you said, she certainly looks comfortable now. It's not uncommon for someone to be able to comfortably perform athletically in front of thousands of people, yet not feel at ease talking to those same people... for a variety of reasons.

Yeah, she's missed on tour, but a family was more important to her, and we should be happy for her. I had the pleasure of seeing her play the US Open at Pine Needles in the Pinehurst area... got some good pictures, too (on a practice day).

BTW, based on the picture, you must like Mi Hyun Kim.... I got pictures of her, too... Always liked her.
Mrs Kim Peanut became my favorite because of her lack of length
still she could really score. My nickname for her was bumblebee she did the impossible.
You are very correct in your analysis of Annika.
Love to see your pictures of Annika and Kim.

Ha,ha,ha... I've never heard that. Wish you were around to tell me that when I had to make those presentations. Taking the glasses off worked pretty well for me.

I also liked MHK because of her ability to win despite the physical disadvantages... and I understand your reference to the bumblebee... I liked her even more because of her donation of $100,000 to the tornado victims a few years back... much like IK Kim did, too. I think they're both great people.. which made IK's fumble on the 72nd hole at Kraft even more difficult to take.

I hope all these pictures upload properly... it's my first time trying...
edit: the shots have to be too small... I'll send in a PM.

Oh, and I really like what you've included at the bottoms of your posts.
