The LPGA certainly seems to have a tough road, at least in the United States, with the ailing economy and a growing number of players who don't speak our language or whose names we cannot pronounce. The golf on the other hand just gets better and better. It's press conferences like this that can help the LPGA reconnect with Americans, but it's not just American players that they need to help us get to know better. I equate it to the Olympics. Sure we cheer for our county's athletes, but when we watch those personal stories about athletes from other countries, we often find ourself rooting for them and even learning to pronounce their names. I know the LPGA has made some effort to get the stories of some of their young stars out there, but hopefully, they will continue to be more creative and proactive in getting the word out that there is amazing talent and some interesting character behind those tricky names.

Scott,
I was at the LPGA Tour Championship in Houston and it really was a washout! It rained everyday and the people running the tournament were not very organized. They would never update the telephone recording when there was a delay and had many fans coming out to the course at 7:30 am when play would not start until 1:30 pm. This happened during the entire tournament and no one was very happy. The course is really not setup kfor walking. From one green to the next tee was many times 100 yards or more. They had to cart the players and the caddies and when the fans got to the next tee, the players were already down the fairway hitting their second shot. There was also huge mounds on each side of the fairways which had to be negotiated in order to see the players in the fairway. I am not surprised to see that the tournament location for 2010 is to be decided.

It was really miserable the entire time. The Korean players were almost invisible and not friendly at all. I hope the LPGA can improve in this area. When Kim, the LPGA clown princess, was not in front of the cameras, she was really a shithead. I guess the rule is...play to the camera and not to the fans. Michelle Wie was only concerned with the PR Glitter and was not the darling among the LPGA Pros. I did not see one other pro talk with her when not playing on the course. I think Wie will finish around 26th at the Kia tournament. So far she has been very inconsistent in her game and has been averaging 12 bogies per tournament this year.
