Nasa is a little snake bit. 2nd playoff loss at a major. She lost to Sung Hyun at the 2018 KPMG. I believe she's also lost two non-major playoffs. 

 

I thought Nasa truly had the momentum in the playoffs -- but, as Yuka said in her interview: "If it's for you, it's for you"... I have to admit though - I didn't expect Yuka to win it -- well, bec. I didn't expect Lexi to hand it over...

I was there.    It was very apparent something was up. Her caddie was talking to the security. Then, the caddie and the security left the scoring tent first.    A cart came. I thou

Reader's Digest version.     

I'm an American, so I'll say this: Just another case of the USA being "homer's". No way it gets switched over if Lexi was involved in the playoff.

loudmouth for sure --- 10000000%  

 

saso isn't from a rich family... her mother is from bulacan, her father is japanese... i know where they train / live in manila -- heck she trains in basketball courts (not for golf - for working out drills)

 

as for sponsors, ICTSI is definitely one of the biggest sponsors of Philippine Women's Golf... they sponsor another Ecuadorian player (I forget - i think darquea) since ICTSI is global ☺︎....  Japan airlines is a sponsor for Yuka (Philippine Airlines has shallower pockets -- but sponsors Philippine Jungolfers - incl Bianca ☺︎

You are correct, except for Darquea it appears as Contecon Guayaquil. 
 

I wonder how Filipino society will react to Yuka? Filipino society as a whole tends to be colorist and favors public figures and celebrities with western/ foreign featured/heritage. Yuka is Asian through and through though the fact her father is japanese probably helps.

Its straight up embarrassing how many times Lexi came up short with a short iron or wedge in hand. How do you continually come up 15+ yards short when the middle of the green gives you such an easy win? I could barely watch the golf, her decision making was so bad. aim for the middle of a green. If you make a putt so be it, if not youre forcing the other players to go low.

 

Also how can the commentators claim she has a short game skill set no one else has and is so great. Her short game was abysmal. How do you lose with a 5 shot lead on the back 9.

Her short game has always been terrible.

It'll be interesting to see. Not quite the same circumstances, but Hinako didn't take membership after winning the WBO. 

 

Yup, Yuka knows English, familiar with American culture etc... those are immediate differences... What's clear is that it's her father who's running the show right now - and he's Japanese ☺︎

I am curious about her second shot to the 71st hole. From a good lie in the fairway, 173 yards to the hole, and her ball comes up about 15 yards short.

I believe that particular shot cost her the win and I am not sure if she mishit the ball or it was the wrong club selection.

I was going to mention the same thing. Two losses last year right? Inbee/Gabby and another to a Euro who's name is on the tip of my tongue. 

 

I believe she finished one shot behind Madeline at Gainbridge.

American commentators FAWNING over an American pro.

 

If anyone else notices...Lexi many times comes up short on her 2nd shot to a par 5 she can easily reach in 2...hit MORE club....rarely see her pin high or at the back of the green.

 

Lexi needs to own up to game and club selection more...she relies too much on her loop...I don't believe she carries a yardage book.

Benji was her best loop....but I think he left for the PGA tour.

Curtis is also good on her bag...but he has his own career to chase after.

Being in the rough on 17 probably cost her the win. Worst teeshot she hit all week. The lie was so bad she only got 50 or so yards on her 2nd.

if it's not darquea it's another lpga golfer that's sponsored by ICTSI... i forgot her name - she played on the same flight with Bianca last year in an LPGA tournament... ugh, i forget who she is-- lemme look it up

 

we love Yuka -- she carries the flag... she's carried the RP colors in Asian games and let it to team gold and individual gold in golf (Bianca had Bronze then)... golf is the only shining spot these days other than boxing LOL...

 

EDIT i just checked IT IS DARQUEA -- LOOK AT HER VISOR  LOGO and compare to yuka/bianca ☺︎

Dottie?   And yes...Pinoy Golf sites are going nuts right now.  Some are calling (lightheartedly) for a national holiday in honour of Yuka!   Some are commenting that Pacman needs to move over for another national sports hero!  🙂

Wrong club.  She hit it clean.  SHe even said she was "staring it down" as if was going to be close to the hole.

 

I watched the one on 18 again, a couple times close.  She hit that one good too.  So it was bad club selection on two consecutive holes to close the tournament.  Rough timing

Sorry ... Lexi refusing an interview is a very bad look. You're a pro athlete, you're expected to take the good with the bad. 

 

Give her a break. Who cares about talking to the media? They're a bunch of hacks that ask garbage questions 9 out of 10 times.

I would not be surprised to see Yuka head off the States, but I would be a little surprised to see Hinako Shibuno go. A little, not a lot.

Yuka's already got the language skills, the experience of living in different countries (I think she was born in the Philippines, spent some years in Japan in elementary and Junior high school, before returning to the Philippines).

 

We've seen a few Japanese players struggle when they go to the States (Ueda Momoko, Arimura Chie spring to mind), and I don't just mean on the golf course. Yuka already has an advantage there.

 

Plus, the father may be Japanese, but he's obviously spent many years outside Japan in the Philippines; maybe he's already thinking on a global scale about her future?

Being in the rough on 17 probably cost her the win. Worst teeshot she hit all week. The lie was so bad she only got 50 or so yards on her 2nd. 

 

 

As bad as that lie was,....it was the awful judgement of distance on the approach shots on both 17 and 18 that ultimately cost her at least a chance in the playoff.  She hit both of those shots solid, so they were the wrong club.

Nasa struggled during her rookie year before heading home and playing on the JPLGA for a while. It's gotta be a tough transition.

Wrong club only in the sense that the wind higher up caught the ball.  It did the exact same thing to Nasa Hataoka when she was in the same spot ... though Nasa was in a thick rough on the edge of the bunker.   Lexi was in the bunker.   It was hard to know how much wind was up there.

I know the pro's gotta own up to any poor execution

BUT

I've never liked Greg Johnson her loop.

 

Lexi was young and needed more hand holding back in 2012....Greg was Lexi's caddie.

At the 2012 USWO....I remember Lexi hit her ball in a deep gorge...he never went down there to check things out to assist Lexi for quite some time.

Later....in Portland....Lexi was making a mess at the 17th hole at Pumpkin Ridge....she was so lost and embarrassed.....she nearly picked up her ball to quit...again Greg was not nearby to help and get her head back in the game.

She took a snowman on 17 and missed the cut by 4 strokes.

 

A week later at the 2012 CWO...Lexi 3 jacked on hole 6.....as she was walking off the green she was hitting her back with her putter and looked like she was going to cry.

There is a really long walk between the 6th green and 7th tee...there's a washroom and Lexi went in.

Greg just walked to the tee and never looked back....I think Lexi might have been crying...she was in the washroom for a really long time....I think he should have been concerned to check up on her.

 

OK...ya the LPGA is the big leagues....so ya gotta be tough.......but when one has a young and fragile pro...as a loop .....ya not only need to carry clubs but be there for mental support...especially for someone so young.

 

BTW...I also saw Inbee 3 jack....she was standing 6 feet away from me near the ropes...the Ice Queen...not one sign of emotion or anger.

I remember reading an article in the NYT several years ago that focused on Arimura Chie, and the struggles she was having off-course in the States. Seemed that the language barrier was huge, and that she had practically zero social life away from the course as a result.

Right.  The conditions were not judged properly and the shot selection came up way short.  Not close.  At least a full club short
