Haven't checked this forum in a while, but I feel like I'm somewhat qualified to address these questions. I've been out of college for about a year and a half, and I went to a university (small,...

I think the cut will be +8 or +9. Remember that in the U.S. Open, anybody within 10 shots of the leader makes the cut. I'll be surprised if anyone gets in the clubhouse better than -2, and I could...

And they're both former US Open champions at this golf course. I'll be surprised if either is out of it by Saturday night.

Is this a bomber's course or what? Pettersen at -5, Webb at -4, Lincicome, Hurst, Hjorth, and Gustafson at -3, and Sorenstam, Ochoa, and Davies at -2. And a lot of those players don't hit the ball...

LPGA championship

Is there really no thread about this? My apologies if I'm missing it somewhere.

Early musings:

If we count Laura Davies as a Hall of Famer, which she will be someday, Hall of Famers have won...

Yeah, I (belatedly) agree. The U.S. team is going to be ridiculously young, which is why I think King opts for experience with her captain's picks. Diaz will get one I imagine, and King was...

I speak Spanish as a second language and not natively, but I do know that this is correct. The best thing about Spanish is that the vowels have the same sound, all the time: A is aaaaah, E is eh, I...

I put her in the same category as Dorothy Delasin. On their best days, they're better than pretty much anybody, but they have a lot of bad weeks. Personally, in an event like the Solheim, I'd...

Hmm, I hadn't heard that, but that's really interesting. What if Alfredsson qualifies automatically?

Sucks for Europe that they might not be able to put their best team together, but they are...

The great, classic ballstrikers still use blades. Karrie Webb and Beth Daniel immediately come to mind, but I'm sure other LPGA players also use them. They do have disadvantages, as you pointed...

Well, it's not quite that simple, because the 2004/5 results have dropped off/depreciated from the rankings. Nonetheless, I'm pretty sure your underlying claim is correct: that Webb would be No. 1...

Indeed, you're correct. Webb finished 33rd at the ANZ last year. However, I neglected to include 104 weeks along with 13 and 52 weeks in my original post...and Webb did win the ANZ in 2005. But,...

Well, we have to keep in mind that her points from 13 weeks ago and 52 weeks ago also depreciated, so we can't isolate the effect of the Australian tournaments. That said, I agree with your overall...

I think Alfredsson would be really happy if the automatics remained how they are (Nocera, Davies, Sorenstam, Arricau, Hudson), but that she will be thrilled when Gustafson replaces Hudson...

2007 speculation

From another thread:


United States
I agree that the top five are locks (especially since it took a little more than 300 points to qualify last time, as best I can tell).

I feel the opposite...

You're absolutely right about D'Alessio--I had forgotten how well she played the last few months of 2006.

I'm with you on Bae especially, and also on Baena. Not so sure about Moodie; it's been...

My predictions

1. Ochoa wins 4-5 times including a major and sweeps the end-of-season awards.
2. Sorenstam has a really good season, winning 3-5 times including 1-2 majors, but loses out on the money list (Ochoa...

I think the 170 or 264 might have been non-majors. I seem to recall from Kingsmill that Sorenstam hadn't missed a non-major cut since the mid-1990s. However, I found (and continue to find) that...

I completely agree DJ--my vote would go to Webb, and I think the POY is too weighted toward consistency and not enough toward big wins. A few years back, (2003?) when Tiger edged Vijay for POY,...
