By the way, I happen to know that your middle name is Nitpicker and there is no need for you to tell me what my middle name is, I know what you think it is already.

No one this year had an outstanding or dominating year. Even with the possability of Shin winning all of those awards (or anyone else), the year does not compare to any of Annika's top years in terms of dominating the tour.

Shin, Ochoa, Kerr had a good year, not outstanding.

Hi xman,
I am the one compairing Shins rookie year to Annika's. As we all know Shin has a good chance on POY and the Vare award.... something that hasn't been done since 1978.

And that is pretty outstanding.

As far as Shin breaking Annika's dominating seasons.... Like you wrote in a later post,there were some great players (Pak,Webb,Inkster) that were playing in those dominating years... but with maybe 10 players with a real chance at a win , there are more like 20 to 25 playing for the win now,I think Annika's records are safe for the time being...

This is hard to swallow. The reason everytime Ji Yai was in contention this season, I pulled for her to win and was bummed if somebody else won...even a little bummed if a Seoul Sister won...I just knew not to underestimate Lorena Ochoa...that while Ji Yai had the chance she needed to be agressive and not play safe...

...some will say that we...well, let me speak only for me...that I should be happy she finished with ROY and second in Vare and POY rankings...and from a logical standpoint that would be correct...

...but I'm not...I'm as disappointed as I've ever been about how a Seoul Sister has finished...almost sick to my stomach...

...it's not a given that Ji Yai will contend for POY every year...talent-wise, she should be there...but again, I don't underestimate Lorena Ochoa...and I don't underestimate a healthy Paula Creamer...when history is in reach, you have to grab it...you can't assume it will come around again...off the top of my head, right now I'm thinking of Dan Marino who early in his career lost a Super Bowl...but with his amazing talent you figured he'd get another chance...he never did...or Michelle Kwan who had several chances at an Olympic Gold...but always came up short...

...maybe Ji Yai will win POY next year...maybe she won't...all I know is she lost this year by a point...one stinking, filthy point...

...I suspect this feeling will pass...but right now I could not care less about tournaments coming up like the Korea-Japan competition or the tournament in Dubai...in this moment, I just feel like forgetting about golf until February 15th in Thailand...

By BKB - ...maybe Ji Yai will win POY next year...maybe she won't...all I know is she lost this year by a point...one stinking, filthy point...

Hee - points are in the eye of the beholder. In Ochoa's garden it enhances the senses. In Shin's garden, I bet all those other points reflect Ochoa's just fine. Time to meditate BKB. 8-)
