During the US Women’s Open, this USGA(?) advert/commercial was played a lot (including in-App, during the USWO “Featured Groups” coverage). 

➡️does anybody recognise this face ie is she an active LPGA golfer?

(hopefully it’ll be obvious to folks and a “D’oh” reaction from me!

She kinda reminds me of Genie Bouchard the Canadian 🇨🇦 tennis player?)

@Stooch @AWinfortheAges  . . . I suspect that this pairing may have come at the suggestion of PING who sponsor both players.  So that would make sense.  (At least I think PING still sponsoors In Gee?) 

 

But, yes a good combination ... ballstriking and putting.

LMAO....I highly doubt this call came from Ping:

"Hi Brooke...you're putting has been in the sh*ts lately and now putter sales are DOWN....so please do us a favor. Can you DUMP Alena (Titleist) and pair up with Dumbo at the Dow to get Ping some more exposure"🤣

 

If Ping really wanted eyes...they would con Patty to play with the Canadian Princess.

 

Patty and Dumbo are not on Ping's main tour pro section area.

I believe In Gee's Ping sponsorship was not renewed last year...she was playing a SIM driver...but it seems like Ping is now endorsing her.

 

Ping is not well known to throw big $ at pros....I doubt Patty & Dumbo's Ping sponsorships are not really lucrative. 

In Gee hasn't had a professional agent for a while...In Gee was hat sponsor less for quite some time.

It could be worse Brooke could have teamed up with Carlota Ciganda under the team name "The Slow Death" 😜

 

The possibilities are endless. Death March?

Edit:  Obviously, I do not believe that PING would have rationalized it as "gee lets get a good ballstriker together with a good putter so we can win" type of logic.   THAT was my observation about the pairing and the benefit of these two.

____________________________________  

 

Of course these types of suggestions come from sponsors.  Don't be naive.  It doesn't mean it happens all the time, but it does happen.  I know more than a few players who have had "suggestions" from their sponsors for things like this in my conversations with their agents.  Being LPGA players, they are more likely to go along with it given that they do not have the mega dollar sponsorships like their PGA counterparts.  

 

Sheesh, we were working on a couple of special events with some players this year for the CP CWO ... involving players not involved with the Solheim Cup.  We were working with some of their sponsors and the players to bring a couple of things together . . . until Golf Canada postponed the event.

The In Gee and Brooke duo was suggested by Ping.

Probably a win-win for both, Ingee get a top notch player (if on form) and Brooke has the excuse "My sponsor made me" when she says she can't to Alena 😜😇

 

If Brooke's ballstriking is as good as the numbers show, In Gee's short game and putter should complement it quite well.

Yeah, they should compliment each other well.  Brooke's ballstriking is in a slight funk, since US Open 3 of 6 rounds have been bad but there are a few week stretches a couple times  every season where it goes away and should back in working order by the event.

 

Although  Brooke averaged 311 of the tee today, it should be a much more fun time for Ingee playing those drives in the alternate shot portion lol

I can’t watch the men’s USOpen.  It hurts my ears. 

 

The LPGA tv announcers are easy to listen to. 

 

The men’s?  Like a whole pot of spaghetti sauce covering up just one noodle. 
 

I wish they’d be more like the ladies’ announcers. 

 

 

PS, tomorrow cbs covers the finals of the Meijer. I expect ear aches

I've found that those lists are mostly popularity contests.   I've played a few of the courses on those lists, and the rankings don't agree with mine.

Many muni's are, for example, better than some top 100 courses.

 

 

It makes sense; beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Nelly jumped to 3rd in the World rankings, one spot ahead of Sei Young.

 

Lydia moved to the 10th spot, climbing into the top 10 for the first times in years.

 

Brittany Altomare jumped 10 spots to 44th, and In Gee moved up 13 spots to #50.

So,  no LPGA tourneys in TX.  

But also, no Symetra Tour tourneys in TX.

Sigh

@Lobby consider supporting the WAPT (plenty of tournaments scheduled in TX/ Arkansas).

@North Texas had a good recent forum thread w.r.t. WAPT (will link it here, once I can locate the URL)

Volunteers of America Classic, North of Dallas next week. Not a great field outside the top 10 but an LPGA event nevertheless. 

???

Why because you can't watch Muni?😛

You can still fanboy your gal Fassi....assuming you get there by Fri...before a trunk slam...you can ask her how she shilled her way into the KPMG.

 

At least the Koreans who live in the DFW area are playing.

Looks like the Cambia Portland Classic is changing venues this year. The reasons are a bit cryptic. Something else must be up. If homeless encampments were an issue almost all events would need to move.

I plan on being there Friday and Saturday. Really disappointed in the field, but there are enough players that interest me that I'll still go ( Gaby Lopez, Ingee Chun, A Lim Kim, Matilda Castren, Aditi Ashok, Fassi, Tseng). It's crazy to me how more from Top 45 Q series, top 10 Symetra Tour, 126-150, and Class A players didn't enter. A couple ( Fassi and Tseng) I want to follow to see what is going on? Mina Harigae pulled out so now there are only 143 players in the field and all the players from the Symetra fill have been used up the final spot is TBD. I wonder if someone higher up may want to enter. Weather isn't supposed to be terrible, low 90s and low humidity. It could be in the 100s with 80% humidity this time of year so I am grateful for that. 

 

As far as Muni, 95% of anything anyone needs to know or see can be seen on Instagram.

Tournaments that book end a major will generally have weaker fields. It would be nice to see dates mixed up from time to time to ensure each tournament gets a good mix of players in odd years.

2) Ya....a lot of lower pros skipping this.....could have been an 'easy'

pay check.

 

3) I noticed you grouped two potential DFL's together in this comment....lol.

 

4) There's difference looking at cyber space vs. going to fanboy Muni in person.....lol.....there's a reason you are going to DFW in person to LPGA fanboy vs. watching this event on TV...just sayin....lol.
