I didn't enjoy that. It is insane that the enduring feeling I got from it all was how awful the coverage was. All due respect to Gemma Dryburgh though; she made golf look easy!! Can you believe that the coverage missed Linn Grant's 2nd shot on the 18th, arguably where the tournament was won and lost?! These media people should be banished for life.

 

There were so many missed putts by everyone. There was something indefinably tricky about those greens that escapes me. Jeeno must have missed 10-15 makeables on the weekend, but she wasn't alone.

 

Jeeno needed a Top-20 to keep the Rolex No. 1. In talking about who might be the next, the team failed to mention Lydia Ko. I think she is a real chance, even if Jeeno continues to run hot, and should she succeed it will be one of the greatest comeback stories ever in sport. We all know how far she had drifted off the pace by late 2019. And the climb back has been long and persistent. I look forward to the next two weeks.

 

Any my last comment - what was up with Momoko Ueda, and more particularly, Ai Suzuki? I have never seen such tediously pathetic petulance from top level sportsman since, well, Nick Kyrgios. But he doesn't count - he's a tennis player.

What did Ueda and Suzuki do?

 I attempted to watch this, but for the first three rounds drifted off to sleep before the coverage began. Finally succeeded on Sunday morning, so basically mimicked Momoko Ueda in negative. I don't mind displays of petulance or even anger when players fall short of their own high standards, it's natural and human. I'll wager nobody on here expected Gemma Drybrough to win. What a performance by the canny Scot. I don't mind admitting that it got a bit dusty in here.

Congrats to Gemma!

Great to see Pajaree play well.

Linn Grant still in great form, can't wait to see how she performs on the LPGA with stronger fields week in and week out.

My pick of Lilia Vu still managed a top 10 even after a poor first round of 75. 

Good lord Maria Fassi...dead last place.

Lol. I see what I did there. A bit of a reverse jinx, no? You talk about how poorly a player has performed in the past, and they hand it right back to you. Nice win by Gemma. That hole must have looked 12 inches wide. Great day ballstriking, but her putter was on fire. Another first time winner, and another country added to this year's winners list.

 

I thought Linn might make a charge, but that bogie on the easy 18th was costly. Yeah, the coverage was wonky with several missed shots. Seems to be the basic problem with the GC getting the overseas feed.

 

Rough day for Momoko. 'Don't like to see that.

 

After yesterday's round I thought that Jeeno was out of this, and wouldn't manage a top 10. She has a knack for Sunday charges. Won't be long before she picks up "The Rocket" knickname.

 

After the opening round I thought the LPGA regulars were toast, but again, what do I know. Slow and steady gets a lot of top 10s when the leaderboard starts heading south on Sunday. That said, the JLPGA players did get almost half of the top 20 spots. 

 

Overall it was a decent tournament. Not a lot of drama heading down the stretch, but Gemma gave herself a nice cushion, and took the pressure off herself.

 

I watched the (recorded) final round this morning using the fast forward button. Yeah, the crew sure likes to talk, but one reason is that they show so many players and shots. I'd say it's almost twice as many as the normal GC telecast. I'd skip 30 seconds, and then notice that I missed two shots.

Gemma Dryburgh Wins First LPGA Tour Title at the TOTO Japan Classic

06 Nov 2022

After 72 holes in Shiga, Japan, Scotland’s own Gemma Dryburgh flourished at Seta Golf Course, posting a second-straight 65 to earn her first LPGA Tour title at the TOTO Japan Classic, finishing at -20 overall. Dryburgh becomes the 11th Rolex First-Time Winner of the season, tying the Tour record for most Rolex First-Time Winners in a singular year, which last occurred in 1995. Her 268 is a new career-best 72-hole score, shattering her previous record, a 276 from the 2019 Pure Silk Championship.

“I was in Korea last week with friends and I said to them ‘I mention you in my speech’ as a joke. But it’s overwhelming to be honest,” said Dryburgh, who becomes the fourth Scot to win on Tour and the first since Catriona Matthew at the 2011 Lorena Ochoa Invitational. “This has been a dream of mine for a long time. A lot of hard work has gone into this, so it means so much.”

Starting the final day one shot behind 54-hole leader Momoko Ueda, Gemma notched her first birdie of the day after making a 20-foot putt on No. 4, and added her second on No. 7 after putting it to three feet on the green. She took the lead at the turn after Ueda bogeyed No. 9, but the real difference maker came at No. 11, when Ueda made a double bogey to Dryburgh’s birdie after an impressive display with her 4 hybrid to four feet.

“That’s kind of a turning point in the round I’d say. I had a really good shot there yesterday and hit the same club today, so I was confident I could do it again,” said Dryburgh. “But yeah, had an incredible shot there and it was a nice birdie on that one. It was quite a tough one.”

It was off to the races after 11, with Dryburgh carding four more birdies in her last six holes, including at the last for a bogey-free day, the greatest way to cap off an incredible week. “The vibes are just so good,” said Dryburgh, who first joined the Tour in 2018. “I’m lapping it up, to be honest.”

JLPGA winner Kana Nagai carded a 7-under 65, notching eight birdies to one bogey in her fourth appearance in the co-sanctioned event and finished solo second, a career-best result in now five starts on the LPGA Tour. “Since many Japanese played well in the first 3 days, I tried to play in that mood. But, LPGA players finally came up on Sunday,” said Nagai, who was one of seven Japanese players among nine total tied for eighth and better. “I am really impressed that LPGA players played well even on the golf course which they are not used to.”

Linn Grant made a run on the final day, with four birdies in her opening nine holes, but two bogeys derailed her chances for a victory. She picked up third after a fourth-round 67, a new career-best result on Tour for the 2022 rookie. “I think I did a good job, unfortunately had a bogey on the last is never fun, but up to that point I did my very best as much as I could,” said Grant. “Got some good game going, some putts, it was fun.”

Yuna Nishimura finished at -13 in solo fourth, while LPGA Tour Winner Ayaka Furue, four-time JLPGA winner Miyu Yamashita and Ueda tied for fifth at -12. Minami Katsu and Yuri Yoshida finished in a tie for eighth at -11, with four players rounding out the top-10 in a tie at -10, including Rolex Rankings No. 1, Atthaya Thitikul. Thitikul rebounded after a Saturday 73 with a 5-under 67 to earn her 15th top-10 result of the 2022 season.

“I always like coming to Japan. It has a lot of memories,” said Thitikul. “And I got World No. 1 here now, my caddie wearing the green bib and the ceremony on the first tee in the first round, so it’s good memories for us.”

Defending co-sanctioned champion Ai Suzuki tied for 28th after finishing the tournament with a 3-over 75 and at -6 overall.

So my thoughts on "Any idea why "Visit Scotland" (the national tourism board) is tagged on all of Gemma Dryburgh's congratulatory messages/replies here, w.r.t. her first LPGA win this week?

 

Because she's Scottish?

 

Sorry, can't help myself today

@Rapidcat The question was from POV that i haven't seen other national tourism boards tagged, when other players have won LPGA tournaments ... albeit perhaps i missed it & they've been tagging them all along? 

(e.g. TourismThailand? Japan? USA? Mexico?)...

 

i.e. why's Scotland special in this regard ... Home of Golf?

or because Dryburgh's win = the first on LPGA for a Scot since 2011?

Yes, I figured you meant something like that.

 

As a support to your comment, I can't remember the Irish tourism equivalent tagging Leona's win.

 

I'm guessing that Tourism Scotland might be a little more 'eager' for the PR:

@Rapidcat Those days when you're "extra chipper"

= akin to being in a "Chelsea Morning" mood? 🙂 

(even if it was "1-0 to the Arsenal" at the weekend ... at least it wasn't "2-0" ☮️✌️... peace... just some banter! )

 

Neil Diamond quote: Chelsea Morning is a great Joni Mitchell song and I...

Chelsea - we were just horrible and I hate losing to The Arse, esp. at The Bridge, though that song cheers me up. Also, I've seen a Neil Diamond concert live! (in my 30's ha ha).

 

At least the Chelsea women comfortably defeated Man U with Oz's finest Sam Kerr scoring as she does in big games.

 

Swings and roundabouts.

What did Ueda and Suzuki do?

In the case of Suzuki - slumped shoulders, pout, club thumping, club throwing, eye-rolling, glaring, etc, for the entire round without a break! Tom Kelly has posted above "I don't mind displays of petulance or even anger when players fall short of their own high standards, it's natural and human.".

I kind of agree - but not in this case. It was non-stop. Ueda was just miserable. I guess it was OK, compared to Suzuki.

Mine was in Melbourne, Oz and 'in the round' meaning the stage rotated slowly with the audience around the circular stage so everyone got a good view at times.

 

Terrific performer. Lots of mature women threw panties (with phone numbers) at him.

There's two types of excessive commentator chatter, in my opinion.

 

-  The cruel, continuous second guessing that I see on the men's PGA tour.   I despise this, and I turn the volume off.

-  The seemingly mindless talking of commentators on this Asian tour.     I don't mind them at all.

 

 

 

No matter what, it's better than no coverage at all.

 

I've been traveling overseas and unfortunately have been geo-blocked out of almost all live streaming services.

Jin Young Ko, Lydia Ko and Nelly Korda all can take over #1 spot this week:

 

 

 

It will be interesting to see if Nelly comes out with any “fire” this week, and whether JYK is back to being JYK after WD in Korea.  I predict Lydia takes the # 1 rank this week.  Now who is #1 after CME is another question.

      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.
