Cristie Kerr gives Angela Stanford a double dose of anguish, this time at CN Canadian Women's Open
Cristie Kerr whomped Angela Stanford once again, this time at the Canadian Women’s Open, an LPGA tournament I missed because I cant find the RSN Network on my list of more than 300 digital cablevision stations.
Angela Stanford suffered a moment of deja-vu this weekend and the stunned “deer-in-headlights” look on her face after her long-shot defeat would have been worth millions.
At the Franklin American Mortgage Championship earlier this season, Stanford held a four-stroke lead heading into the final round only to be trounced by Cristie Kerr.
A worse thrashing occurred this past weekend by Kerr as she awakened from an eight-stroke deficit to claim the trophy.
While Kerr exhorted that it was her day, a disheartened Stanford tearfully professed, “I’m not sure how I’m going to react to this one. It’s probably a good thing I’m playing next week. It’s probably good to keep going.”

We don't see any action yet from Bivens but I hope that we will see a dfference by the 2007 season. If not, it might be time for a change again. I guess the devil you know (Votaw) is better than the devil you don't know...
Take, for example, the recent Scandinavian TPC. Both Annika Sorenstam and Lorena Ochoa were going blow-for-blow, but we, the viewers and supporters of women's golf, did not get to see any of it. For heaven's sake, these two women are the top players in the world but they only showed up on internet radar.
I know the networks would never give up the opportunity to televise an event in which Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson were going head-to-head.
Regarding the difference in skill level, some people want to see long drives, others want to see more accuracy. "Bombing" a drive isn't the most important part of the game. That's why I love watching both the LPGA and the Champions Tour. Pin-seekers versus long hitters... a great debate topic!
