    SWMBO and I and Cartier and his SWMBO go to Kingsmill every year. We usually stay at a timeshare and play golf during the week and hit the tourney several days. I look forward to May every year.

    Us too. It was a sad day when they shut the tournament down for a few years. Glad to see that it is back.

    It would seem as if there are no LPGA fans around here...

    <- LPGA fan. I volunteered for the Safeway Classic a few years ago. The players are pretty cool for the most part, their caddies (for the most part) are complete dicks. Seemed like the foreign players and their caddies were usually the nicest ones.

    Went to the Canadian Open 2 years ago when it was in Edmonton.

    Great week ... players are surprisingly chilled and accessible ... my son was given a sponsors polo shirt on the Tuesday and had it covered in autographs, chocolate, mustard and Fanta by Sunday. He also collected a swag bag of signed balls and gloves.

    I have been to a few web.com tour events and several LPGA events. Have abetter time at the LPGA events. Players seem more approachable. Can also relate to their game better. The events that I have been to it seems that the tees they play correlate roughly to the White tees. They got game...

    Any LPGA fans?

    I love the LPGA, but the last time I saw the leaderboard it was like looking at a menu in a Chinese restaurant.

    From today's leader board... 3 Americans, 1 Spaniard, 1 New Zealander born in South Korea, and 5 South Koreans. Not one "Chineese".

    I enjoy watching the LPGA. I find it amazing how the LPGA has such a South Korean dominance, while we just don't see the same on the PGA Tour. Most colleges that have golf teams have both mens and womens teams. Lots of that is due to Title 9 rules. Is it because parents don't push their female children to excel in a sport like the do their male children? Difficult to believe "American born" somehow diminishes the athletic ability in the female gender.

    LPGA tournaments are a blast. I have always had a good time attending.

    I think the South Koreans do so well is as a culture they focus on doing well and for some reason golf is a key sport for their ladies. I read somewhere that Se Ri Pak really started a revolution in Korean Women's Golf. A lot of Korean girls really looked up to her. We have a large Korean population and you see a fair amount of women out on the course.

    Ko blowing the win on the 17th with a double bogey. What a bummer.

    NYC is a good player. I think she has won 8 or 9 times. I am sure Lydia felt some pressure there.
