@Stooch in that “Le Kiss 😘 “ photo... it looks as if they’re holding onto Brooke, so that she can’t run away & avoid being kissed!

 

 

Naw, what the two of them don't realize is that Brooke's elbows are "sharper" than Gordie Howe's!  😛 🙂  So she could handle herself if they get carried away.  

But on a more serious note, I know that they are the sponsors, but honestly, if the Tour de France can do away with the podium girl kisses for the riders, then surely this must go the way of the dinosaurs too.

Maybe SYR will be in -- and that would be a kind of way for Brooke to assist her in a "win win" situation.  SYR wants the reps so that will be helpful if she wants it.

Looks like Brooke pulled the pin this week.  Smart choice recharge mentally and go early put in a little more work at Muirfield, she does have a chance at the Annika award now

 

Also, doesn't a top 10 get you into the next event or are there different rules for co-sanctioned events?  Sophia and So Yeon are listed as alternates.

 

@Stooch Where did you see the "Alternates" information?

i searched the LPGA website, but also couldn't find the Link for the Monday Qualifiers?

@Stooch Thanks for the reply... but it seems  that's the same LPGA Link that i previously shared... but it shows up blank for me, apart from that "Tournament Entries" header ... (see screenshot)...

I don't know it comes up for me, 6 sponsor invites are Thai players and 2 are Scots and then all the players and reserves, but it seems So Yeon and Sophia aren't in even with that top 10

With the 18th hole, I say this as someone who prefers it as a par 4, I get it.  Its' better to end on a positive note than a negative note.  I'm not sure everyone remembers this hole as a par 4 it was deadly, probably among the top 5 hardest holes played on the LPGA each season.  Much nicer for the event and most fans seeing it end with birdies and eagles rather than bogeys and doubles, me I loved the carnage of 18 as a par 4 lol

 

Be a shame if there was a hard hole in a Major such as the 18th at Carnoustie, Lytham ( & 17th ), Muirfield, Old Course ( but 17th ) to sort the wheat from the chaff. 
 

Keep the tricking-down to ordinary tour events. The gear has emasculated these tough holes to some extent anyway. In fact, why have Majors at all if you want a birdy-fest ?

We must have different ideas of birdie fests. Wide open fairways, flat terrain, benign, resort-style greens, and shallow greenside bunkers make for birdie fests. Wildfire comes to mind, as does Thornberry Creek. 

 

On the flipside, narrow fairways, sidehill lies, and tricky greens doesn't generally make for a birdie fest, and the birdies are usually well earned.  Minjee shor -13 at the USWO at Pine Needles this year. Pretty low winning score for a major, but it was far from a birdiefest.

I watched her first round - no shortage of birdies there as I recall. I’m afraid you don’t get it. These 5 ladies’ and 4 gents’ Majors are rare events, to find a champion golfer, on difficult layouts, not to mollycoddle players. 
 

When links are used then the weather and/ or rough can intervene. I don’t criticise the Evian course, since I know the area and the layouts have to use terraced topography invariably. But calling that championship a Major is like calling Formula E F1.

You really need to back off with these type of comments.

It’s a forum young man. If the guy enjoys pit-pat golf in ladies Majors it’s fine by me. Thank you for the orders.

    • 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 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.
