Finally GC has started the coverage.  Not sure why the delay.  Nice to see Brooke finish with a bogey free round.   Positive signs, but of course, it's only round 1 and plenty of golf to be played. 

Happy for Brooke.

 

Whilst I am a regular complainer of the constant coverage focus on Brittany's caddie interaction with Brooke, my issue is about the coverage's focus not on B&B doing their thing instead of covering player's hitting shots/stroking putts.

 

Various sports in geographies seem to be increasing focus on the peripheral elements such as umpiring (Aussie Rules in Australia) & VAR (Football/Soccer in the English Premier League). I watch those sports to watch the sport, not the supporting elements. I'm not interested in caddies, cleaning shoes, what they're eating etc etc, just want to see the real action, not coverage filler.

Agree.  Brittany does get alot of coverage.  She is actually more famous than some of the actual players.  There should be a drinking game where every time they mention that she is Brooke's sister, everyone takes a shot.  Would get drunk pretty quick.  🍻

Well last week, many of us would have been hammered every time they mentioned Nelly returning to tour after her blood clot . . . that had to be said like 3-4 times an hour (on multiple channels).   Another was Mina and having only $2 thousand left in her bank account.   🤣🍻

Not quite outstanding coverage. Pfffttt. 

 

Hopefully we get some good names at the top of the leaderboard on Sunday. Remember that coverage is on CBS for the final round.

Brooke + Ko dueling it out would be good TV. Also Frida and Steph 2 of the better younger players looking good at the moment and local Marina could get another W this season.

Most people I know wouldn’t have $200. The whole time I’m like really? $2000 is bare bones poverty?

Well, yes - for a professional player that is.  $2000 would not cover very many flights and tournament fees (I am still assuming that they do pay tournament registration fees per event).   Further, too many MC's and then there is very little revenue to offset the expenses!  But, I agree with your point -- lots of people would think having $2,000 is doing okay.

And why would you expect it to be better going forward under the current television contract the LPGA has until 2030 that the LPGA signed off on when the LPGA allowed the PGA Tour to negotiate their next television contract a few years back?

In the announcers’ defense, there were no commercial interruptions.  
 

they were running out of things to say.

That's a sad looking leaderboard. 

Have no fear, Lyds is making her move, Nasa is close too behind too. 

 

Kinhult amongst the next crop of good Swedish golfers like Linn Grant on the LET and you caught a dose of Lindblad last week.

 

Morganne won the LET her last event, so she is doubling down, we are near AC after all! 

 

Maybe Su Oh will make a run tomorrow ? The Aussie wave is riding high.

Lol. Lydia, "I don't ever want to hit that shot again." I hear you. Don't ever like the long bunker shots. 

 

I'd say there's a very good chance we'll see a first time winner. Is it Jodi time, or will her putter let her down again?

Can't forget about Brooke, local gal Marina Alex, or the recently playing better Sung Hyun Park.  How great would it be if Namdalla were to win again.

A lot of golfers to choose from, it's pretty wide open. Somebody might shoot a 63 and run away with it! 

 

I'd have to side with @Argonne69 in rooting for somebody to get their first W.   Jodi would be the sentimental favorite since she's the old lady up on the leaderboard 🙂

@woahnelly “Old Lady”?? Are you confusing Jodi hyphen 👱‍♀️ with… Cristie Kerr? 👵🏻

Christie is grandma status at this point 😂 

 

Jodi hyphen looks good for her age.  She was old enough to babysit most of the leaderboard in high school for extra cash while mom and dad go on "date night" 

 

Why do all the women in my office look like dog the bounty hunter? Woof

    • 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.
