I just checked the PXG website....Lydia is no longer there.

Parsons just signed Top 5 to a driver deal.

 

No wonder the Zhangster hasn't announced an endorsement.....it's all hands on deck at The Death Star and TINA has everyone working overtime to SERVE her.

 

Tina's too greedy and will likely sign a full bag deal with a club OEM.

Lydia's so talented she can play anything, but getting used to new wedges, putter and potentially a ball too will take more time.

 

Too many guesses where Lydia might land....I'll let you guys/gals comment first.

Does Chiara Noja the 15-year-old playing on the LET = remind anyone else of Nelly Korda w.r.t. swing / physically gifted with long levers?

 

(Peter Finch shared a 9-hole course vlog today 7 Jan 2022, i.e. competing against Chiara Noja in Dubai... youtube Link below... Chiara seems to have a very nice chatty personality & will win many fans hoping she does well!)

@postfold previously shared some info w.r.t. Chiara Noja (circa Oct 2021)

I believe the US Open features the most non members so if they include the top money list players from the KLPGA and JLPGA and LET. How else would A Lim and Lee6 come from obscurity to win 🙂

 

Winning team this year ?

Lee6 was an LPGA tour member at the time of her USOpen win. She was also one of the hottest golfers on the planet at that time.

Hank Haney?   🤣

LMAO

Although I didn't read the book...supposedly Haney was upset/hurt when Tiger didn't offer him a popsicle when Tiger went to get one himself.

 

At least I have something in common with Tiger...we are both cheapo's.

 

I could see Tiger pulling out some Subway coupons on his 1st "date" with Pancake woman.🤣

Sir Barkley is SO FUNNY each time he SLAMS Tiger on how cheap he is.

 

The locker room attendants at Augusta are so happy when they see FIGJAM entering the room...Tiger...not so much.🤣 

 

FWIW....I miss all the cheap Chinese slop houses with FANTASTIC food in TO.

There's only 1 good hole in the wall Chinese place here....Kent's Kitchen....I'm kinda addicted to the garbage/nonsense.

My wife HATES it...she threw up the 1st time she had some.🤣

Definitely is physically gifted and her swing is a thing of beauty to watch.  Haven't really studied her side-by-side with Nelly but she has a ton of ability and (based almost solely on her social media posting) seems to enjoy the game and is driven enough to succeed at the highest levels.  

 

Projecting the future of golf prodigies is hard but I think she absolutely has star potential.  And yes, she's got personality and does pretty well on interviews considering how young she is.

Well here comes the additional revenue stream for the LPGA -- wonder how much it will net them.  And yes, this had been in the works for quite awhile and now that the KPMG Insights data has been adopted, it can be implemented.   To borrow someone else's parlance - strike one for the Death Star. 

 

______________________________________________________________

LONDON, UK (January 5, 2022)— IMG ARENA, a leading sports betting service and content hub, has secured the official sports betting data and live streaming distribution rights to the Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) Tour, one of the longest-running women’s professional sports associations in the world.

 

The partnership will mark a step change in the presentation of data-led content from the LPGA Tour. The global tour comprises more than 30 tournaments each year, with flagship events across North America, Europe, Asia, and Australia, including five major championships.

 

Available from early 2022, a comprehensive range of real-time, shot-by-shot data and markets will be delivered via IMG ARENA’s pioneering Golf Event Centre, as well as live streaming and interactive course visualisations from the Tour. Initial partners will include bet365, BoyleSports and Tipsport.

 

 

 @Golf Dino thanks!the IMG Arena deal with LPGA is getting lots of media coverage as a game-changer/ getting serious about sports betting.

Gina Kim turns pro...no surprise considering she was on the alternate lists in the upcoming LPGA events.

It's also difficult to retain your card when you start your season mid way through.

 

I'm surprised. The flipside is that she won't be eligible to play many tournaments before June, so why not finish her spring semester?

She's eligible to play JTBC Classic and Lotte and many other 144 full field events.  She just needs a Top-10 to strike gold and be in good shape for 2022 and beyond.

I'm not surprised....Gina knows that Parsons might go bankrupt shilling the 0211 DC's for only $77/club and wants to cash an endorsement cheque before it goes NSF.

 

Now that Tina is gone....Bob has more patience to sign up more pros.

I'm thinking Gina will get a $100M 7 year contract.🤣

 

Endorsements are difficult to obtain...especially good ones...unless your dad is BJ Wie.....though BJ could adopt a new Korean daughter....as a NEW project.

I think Gina might be a PXG POSER gal...she was in the PXG College Showcase event and right besides Parsons at many times. Gina was also playing PXG irons.

 

I'm a Gina fanboy cause I saw her play golf in 2018.

 

Talking about endorsements....Arg you missed a YUGE opportunity.....you could have had Bessie painted black with a HUGE PXG white logo for your road trip.....the PXG sponsorship would have paid for many green fees, RV parking spaces and gas.

Heck....if you are a good negotiator you could have signed a bonus for free craft beer every time you shot under 80...just sayin.

KABOOM BABY!

I agree, a waste, hope she has picked her 'moment'.

    • In-hand photos of 2023 TaylorMade Stealth 2 Plus, Stealth 2, Stealth 2 HD drivers + fairways woods
      Check out our front page launch stories here and here. 
       
      What you need to know: For the first time, carbon is the most prevalent material by volume in a TaylorMade driver, and more carbon equals better performance, says the company. Last year, TaylorMade debuted a 60X Carbon Twist Face. With TaylorMade Stealth 2, engineers are bringing carbon to more of the golf club — and unveiling a new-and-improved Carbon Twist Face in the process. Stealth 2 Plus (low spin, most workable) Stealth 2, and Stealth 2 HD (draw bias, high launch, most forgiving) drivers make up the Stealth 2 family.
       
      Stealth 2 


       
      Stealth 2 Plus


       
      Stealth 2 HD



       
      What you need to know: Breakthrough movable weight technologies and versatile designs are the hallmarks of the 2023 TaylorMade Stealth 2 fairway woods. Stealth 2 Plus is branded as “three fairway woods in one” owing to the unique performance characteristics afforded by the 50-gram sole weight. Stealth 2 features a slightly lower profile 3D carbon crown than Stealth. This moves CG down and away from the toe with more weight in the rear of the club for higher launch and MOI. Ultra-high MOI Stealth 2 HD features an oversized 200cc head and low-profile sole, creating an easy-to-hit, draw-biased club.
