Golfer Supremacy Rankings: The Pat Hurst edition
At the Golfer Supremacy Rankings we strive for fairness. We also strive to bake the best damned chocolate-chip cookie you’ll ever taste and hope you rush out to buy a box or two of the new Golfer Supremacy Rankings Chocolate Chip Delights when they come to a supermarket near you this Fall.
But back to fairness. The U.S. Women’s Open was a sensational battle between two women. Yet one of these women - Annika Sorenstam - is getting the lion’s share of the press, while Michelle Wie gets even more attention for coming close to winning.
And that leaves Pat Hurst out in the cold. Well, here at the Golfer Supremacy Rankings, we right wrongs. Even if we have to make stuff up.
Golfer Supremacy Rankings: Pat Hurst Edition
1. Pat Hurst
Comments: The Boston Herald is just one of the publications trying to dance around the fact that Hurst is fat. Some went so far as to question whether Hurst could go the full 36 on Sunday. Survey’s have shown, however, that raising two kids is training enough for a long day of golf.
2. Pat Hurst
Comments: Following the birth of her second child in 2002, Hurst’s game has slowly improved to the point where she entered the U.S. Women’s Open at No. 18 on the money list and will spring in to the Top-10 regardless of her finish in the playoff.
With a victory, Hurst can join Joanne Carner as the only players to win the U.S. Junior Girls, U.S. Women’s Amateur and U.S. Women’s Open. It would be the second major victory and fourth LPGA victory of Hurst’s career. Hurst was also the LPGA’s rookie of the year in 1995.
3. Pat Hurst
Comments: Hurst, 37, can bench-press 350 and field dress an alpaca in less than 20 minutes. As a child, Hurst was taunted by kids calling her “Patty Hearst.” Hurst used this resentment to train really hard and become a great golfer. A win at the U.S. Women’s Open will further smite her former tormentors.
Random Factoid I: Pat Hurst has a standing offer to be the spokesperson for Golfer Supremacy Rankings Chocolate Chip Delights.
Random Factoid II: The Backstreet Boys’ hit “I want it that way” is about Pat Hurst.

But seriously, WKW, Hurst can't really bench press 350...300 maybe!
I hear that Sorenstam does 1000 situps...and pushups with 50 pound weights on her back.
I'd rather watch Michelle and her swing any time.
Johnny Miller was trying hard not to say it but I'll say it for him. Pat Hurst has a clumsy hacking swing that's not pleasant to watch and she should lose some weight.
I'm surprised at her early tee time given the ratings she generates.Are these tee times randomly allocated? The USGA folks seem to be able to manipulate the pairing of the 2005 Open champ with the 2005 Amateur champ or whatever so why not give Michelle a later tee time and better exposure to attract casual fans like me?
Instead Morgan gets a later tee time . Who wants to watch her?
The LPGA needs all the publicty it can get it seems to me
Pat left the course to 1st feed her children. Then went to her hotel to get them bathed and ready for bed before she could relax herself. No matter how she played the next day, to say the playing field was even for both of these golfers is false. They have different responsibilities to attend in between rounds. For Pat to tie in regulation, makes her a true Champion in my book !!!!!!!
I prefer watching Michelle anytime
She's just an overweight (OK fat!) lady clumsily hacking a ball and she happens to be very skillful at doing it.
More power to her butI watch golf to be entertained and she does not entertain me
