Once again the Women's Open showcased some really amazing golf--some amazingly good and some amazingly...well, not so good! How about Brittany Lincicome, being near the top of the leader board the first day, then shooting 80 the second day and tweeting that she wanted to crawl in a hole and pull it in on top of herself (ever feel THAT way after a round?)-- then recovering to finish top twenty!
How about Michelle Wie showing glimpses of the game we all know she's capable of, only to falter...could the fact that she's just graduated and hasn't been able to focus wholly on golf yet have a role in that? I'd bet so! Se Ri Pak, the winner in the first Open at Kohler playing as a real veteran and playing with a torn shoulder muscle AND still making such a good showing, And then there's the very public Morgan Meltdown. Every time your game "embarrasses" you, just remember Morgan hitting not one, not two, but three shots in a row into a water hazard-- with three different clubs, on national tv! Welcome to golf!
So what was the highlight? NYC ( Na Yeon Choi) was a putting machine! Was that all she did well? No, but it was what she did better than anyone else. So...back to my nagging reminder to every student and player of the game .. LEARN TO PUTT!
