I dunno.   I got to know what a nice guy Max Homa is thru his twitter posts.   (I don't do FB or Insta)

 

 

Yeah, that's right about Max.  But he simply could not "compete" with Phil or Tiger who have a far greater reach than he does.   I like Max, and I thought he had some great posts too, though he may have had the greatest increase in engagement/followers than either Tiger or Phil, but I do not believe that he was rewarded for that. 

 

I mean, really all Tiger had to do was a couple of posts of "I'm back" after the accident and include a snazzy little video clip and he would have won with that alone.

It'll be interesting to see how DK's game has held up over the past two and a half months. Not sure if she's been able to practice much.

It's a popularity contest. This should be right up Muni's alley.

Good idea LPGA is working on its own PIP (Player Impact Program):

I'm not sure if I like these PIPs . . . I think the problem with this is that it is often "sold" as a way of getting more money to the players and getting them more engaged on social media, etc.   But as we saw with the PGA, it becomes a case of the "rich getting richer" per se in that Tiger and Phil battled it out for the win.  

The real goal is to create brand engagement of the PGA and now the LPGA.  That is not a bad thing, but I would like to see the financial rewards be split.  Perhaps a financial reward for gross engagement numbers (which favour big accounts) and then I'd like to see financial incentive rewards for those players that have the greatest impact in terms of percentage of growth in engagement/followers so that the smaller social media accounts (usually associated with less prominent players), benefit from their efforts.  The financial reward would have greater impact with them than it would with the big name players.  

 

Mea culpa -- I have not read the release for finer details, but if it is like the PGA, then I think it misses the mark on what could be achieved.  

 

 Instead of an LPGA PIP... I’d prefer a stipend/upfront expenses program similar to what the PGA announced today wrt “earnings assurance program” for rookies/ journeyman pros?

Any updates on what happened to DK’s tumor on her spine. Did she get surgery or how did it get smaller or anything?

 

Kang Talks Comeback In “Chill” Canada

24 Aug 2022

Written By: Steve Eubanks jseubanks

Steve Eubanks is a New York Times bestselling author and managing editor for the LPGA.



She intends to keep the personal medical details private. Rightly so. But Danielle Kang did let the world know how much she appreciated the support she received after an extended absence due to what was described as a tumor on her spine.

“I've been gone for a while, but I'm really excited to be back in Ottawa and playing the CP Women's Open as my first event back,” Kang said on Wednesday afternoon at Ottawa Hunt and Golf Club. “I really appreciate all the patience that everyone has shown me, all the fans, all the get-well wishes, and even my sponsors have taken a lot of patience on me opting out on a lot of the social posts to sponsor outings and things like that. I am so really thankful for the people that I work with.

Kang was last seen at the U.S. Women’s Open at Pine Needles in Southern Pines, North Carolina, back in June. It was there that her brother put out a post on social media stating that Danielle was suffering from a tumor. The 29-year-old confirmed the story but offered no other details.

“I took some time to properly rehab and address the issue that I've been playing through, and of course I never want to be away from the LPGA Tour. As anyone who knows me knows, I'm a competitor. I’m always out here no matter what happens,” said Kang. “However, this was the best thing to do physically and mentally for me. I'm super thankful for my medical team and everybody that worked with me in Vegas, that guided me through it, especially my family and friends. It's been a tough few months.” 

Kang spent those “tough few months” learning more about her physical situation and how she needed to adjust her tendency to grind in practice sessions to her new-found normal. She left in June saying only that she would take some time, work with doctors and her team, and come back when she felt ready.

The situation sidelined Kang during one of the hottest streaks of her career. She won the first event of the 2022 season, the Hilton Grand Vacations Tournament of Champions. She followed that up with a runner-up finish at the Gainbridge LPGA at Boca Rio, and a pair of top 10s in Singapore and Thailand.

But when the Tour returned stateside, things didn’t feel right. She withdrew after the first round of the LOTTE Championship in early April. Then she struggled through the DIO Implant LA Open, a home game for the young woman who grew up in Southern California. Another withdrawal at the Palos Verdes Championship presented by Bank of America and an early exit from the Bank of Hope Match Play near her home in Las Vegas had people wondering what could possibly be wrong. Kang made it official the following week in Southern Pines.

Now, she is ready to go again, as spunky as ever.

“I didn't think I would be competing today. I've missed some majors and that was heartbreaking for me. But I was watching some great golf. I hope you guys enjoyed that as well,” said Kang. “I talked to all the players that have won and it's pretty cool. It was a lot of competition coming down the stretch. A lot of going back and forth, which I enjoyed. So thank you to the girls for entertaining me while I was gone.”

As for why she chose the CP Women’s Open for the comeback, Kang was matter of fact.

“Eventually I told (the team that) I felt good. We had a consistent two weeks showing up and working out and being able to play golf for consistently two hours a day, being able to hit golf balls, work on stuff with Butch, walk the golf course, and I just felt good. And I didn't want to miss the Canadian Women's Open,” said Kang, who will tee it up in her eighth CP Women’s Open. “I thought this would be the perfect place to come back. I mean, Canadians are so chill, right? I feel like I'm at home. Nice crowd, like a home crowd. It's just the vibe I always get.”

I had a dream that Brooke would win this. First time any LPGA player has appeared in a dream of mine!

 

No idea if it will happen - some good young players hungry for wins right now. Not that "teenage sensation" Brooke is old by any means. 

 

Did you throw down five quid on her?  You never know with "premonitions" like that!  🙂

They were mentioning Anna Davis on the broadcast, I will say I don't like the Augusta event due to the rewards, I think it gives too many entries in to the pro game, plus she was given some exemption in Cali on top.  She played well but too much for an AM IMO.

 

I look at Brooke at 16 she got exemption into the Chevron and a Canadian event and qualified for the US Open.  The events were spread out and she made the cut in all 3 and finished 10th at the US Open.  She played a heavy Am Sked though being a finalist at the US Am and winning the Individual at the team world event, I believe.

 

Just my opinion but I think dipping your toe in pro events is fine but at this age I think you are better off beating up on your peers

    • 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.

      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.
