My bad have no idea why I put Bethlehem lol. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.

maybe you were thinking of the steel companies?  eg Bethlehem Steel? LOL... then again, the Amish don't really forge a lot of steel i think (I lived in PA for a few yrs so the area(s) are extremely familiar)...  love the keystone state!

I know 2 of the 10 people here (if it's exactly 10) following Yuka, so Patty and Minjee have the rest of the 8.. Yuka has/wears tear off pants too most, if not all the time -- BUT she almost never tears them off.   Interesting to hear your comments about the business side of these things eg Walmart -- but totally the truth,  just way too tacky indeed...


There was a

Japanese photographer who followed the group as well as Yuka’s sister/mom?

Yes, and I hope with the way Minjee is playing, there'll be a bit more today... I mean Yuka aint shabby today either but she's not amongst the leaders at -7, a far far cry from the leaders... LOL

Obviously something is not right with you. I calmly replied to your attack. Tried to message you to see if you were OK and you replied with a request to not pm you and that anything I needed I could say in public.  I am not sure what your issue is because I never said anything about you personally. I didn't want to communicate with you publicly but since that is what you want, I will do it publicly. Are you ok? This is a small community and I've never had any issues with anyone that went on beyond a post or 2 that didn't get hashed out quickly. However, you seem to have some unmerited animosity toward me. Some have said my posts are too gossipy or that I have been unfair in my criticism of media coverage or how certain issues are handled by the LPGA but isn't that what a public forum is for?

 

I just don't get what was so upsetting about me saying that Ingee has some creepy fans that are older men. I've said it before when I've attended events and I'll continue talking about what I see.1548940356_ScreenShot2021-09-25at5_45_30PM.png.936574afc979b99609a33c604fdb63e3.png

No way am I watching he Snoozefest Ryder Cup when the LPGA is sporting 23 players who can potentially win this on a hot day tomorrow. It's gonna be a shoot out! With 87 making the cut, I'm thinking the purse is gonna be diluted down the scoreboard. 🤑

 

How about that Bianca? GO MATILDA🇫🇮 Nice 64 today to get in contention.

At this point, I think  Bianca just wants me to turn into Jekyll and Hyde like her...

 

Either way it's disappointing to see this kind of yo-yo performance - esp with qschool looming ahead for her.  She will need to be more consistent, Mike her practice partner and good Diego buddymate, Matilda...

I give Bianca a lot of of credit today!  She knew precisely what she needed to do and did it.  But her job is getting even tougher tomorrow;  she needs to shoot -10 tomorrow in order to move inside Top-100 on CME Points List.

 

Alternatively, she shoots -8 tomorrow and finishes inside Top-13 next week.

The talent is there but the way she was hyped, man! She was going to be rookie of the year, player of the year, vare trophy and win a couple of majors.

I don't think there're enough daylight to finish the tournament at 2:00 PM local time tomorrow.  There will be groups who will finish their rounds after the leader group.

 

It's going to be tight. The final groups are teeing off at 9:16 am, and if you figure 5 hour rounds, they'll run through the scheduled end of the broadcast window at 2:00 pm. I assume The Golf Channel will show the finish, and delay the start of the following coverage.

It's been a while since we've had a birdiefest. There hasn't been a winning score of -20 or better since the Meijer in mid-June, and that was a four round tournament. This is shaping up to have the lowest average score by round of the year.

 

It's anyone's guess at this point. I'd say -7 is the cutoff for potential winners if the stars align.

It's always a question of "what is the winning score!"  Nasa rarely backed off; rather, she is good at adding strength to strength.  My guess is the winning score will be -17.

 

As a result, I'm confident neither Bianca nor Yealimi will win!

The sunset is 7:07pm...so why are the leaders teeing off so early at 915am.....so why all the early tee times?

 

The weather will be perfect today.

Early times so people can go home/watch the RC or NFL football?

In other words.

Playing on a pitch & putt goat track.🤣

 

I believe they've had some rain...but the course looks dry....they must be really watering the greens...the pitch marks are deep....if ya put enough spin on mid-long irons...the balls will stop...this is also aiding low scoring.

I thought you're smart, but I need to recalibrate.

 

The tee time is dictated by the TV broadcast ends at 2:00 PM local time, and the leader group needs to finish around that time.   As a result, there're 5 groups who'll tee off after the leader group tees off at 9:16 AM.

I assume they moved up the tee times today to avoid conflict with the final groups of the Ryder Cup. I don't recall a recent tournament that finished at 2 pm local time that wasn't due to weather.

What?

You don't like watching:

Juice Boy hitting 417 WRX bombs

Koepka telling the RO's to FO...and then watching El Nino spit out his drink laughing.

Spieth is too Pink Shirt to tell Hayes to FO....IMO....Greller should have stepped in and told Hayes to FO.

 

The Yanks are demolishing the Euros...it will be over early today in singles.

Agree.

Maybe the WMPO on Sunday with an early finish not to conflict with the SB???

 

I don't think the 2 events will conflict today cause the Mericans will finish off the Euros early....Mental Midget Rory hasn't won a point.

Ole Ole????🤣

 

Blah...it's raining here today so a long day in front of the TV...Walmart, RC, Chiefs, Seahawks and SNF.

Talk about SNOOZEFEST....at this current pace...Nasa may make this into a boring event if no one can chase her down.

 

Ok...so are Nasa and Jess K now the top ranked LPGA pros w/o a major....who else am I missing?

 

Nasa has 4 wins, but will likely pick up her 5th today. Amy Yang and MJ Hur also have 4 wins each.

I forgot about Amy....a big choker in the USWO's where she contended many times.

Although she has 2 majors...IMO...So Yeon was never a good closer.

 

I think many Koreans lack the "step on your throat" persona to win more often...if they befriended Crusty...the Koreans would have 50+ more LPGA wins.

Ingee is sweet but as fidgety as ever. Plane flies over she stands off, roar from a far away hole, interrupts he stance. It reminds me a lot tennis player Mary Pierce who for a long time had to adjust her pony tail, check her contacts, wipe her brow, between each point. 
 

Agree....it didn't take long for me to notice how any distraction bothers In Gee...that's why she's named Dumbo.

 

I think Mel Reid was getting annoyed with her slow pace of play at the 2016 KPMG.

This was LUGGAGEGATE V2.....the other player in the 3some....Ha Na Jang.🤣

Again, I am tired and have more observations  and will maybe post them later but I think I may have witnessed cheating or I don’t understand how a provisional shot is supposed to work. I will not reveal the name of the player since it may be my misunderstanding of the rules.

 

The player teed off and the drive goes way, way left almost into the practice range. The player hits a provisional that goes left but not quite as far.  The group has a hard time finding the ball. The player that teed off says she found her 1st ball but the couple of people who are following the group know that was not the original ball. If it was it would have been much further left. Someone brings it to the Marshall’s attention and the Marshall says I didn’t even see her hit a second ( she did!!). I say to the Marshall she did hit 2 shots and try explaining but she walks away. The player ended up making par but had the original ball really been played a double would have been generous. 

 

So , this is cheating right? if the provisional was played as the original shot?
 

What???...Doris Chen and her mother were at this event?🤣

 

Unless the 3some was colluding to cheat....and based on what you might have observed....I gotta believe what transpired was all kosher.

 

If the player was trying to cheat....I gotta believe the other 2 players and loops would question what was going on.

The players have the obligation and responsibility to protect the field from misplay.
