Random thoughts on the debut of the LPGA’s International Crown tournament.
Carved out of rolling Piedmont hills west of Baltimore, Caves Valley Golf Course is a beauty.
No fooling, on the southern approach to the golf course, there’s a road named Michelle Way.
Late Saturday’s play was riveting, with the US and Korea in the sudden death playoff for the wild card.
“Ice in her veins” doesn’t sound like a compliment, but in this regard it is. And Korea’s Inbee Park has it.
There are six women’s professional golf tours. Do you know them?
Definition of a true golf fan? For Americans, you watched some of the tournament on Sunday, even though Team USA was eliminated.
Birdie report: @LPGA rocked, while @LPGAIntlCrown flopped.
Was Michelle Wie missed? Most definitely, but if she had played better during the qualifying period, she would have earned her way on.
The future of the tournament? Not sure, but something the Korean team said is music to the promoter’s ears. Inbee Park said she had never been as nervous as she was playing on Saturday in the wild card playoff.
Media coverage - The Washington Post, was shameful. Nothing in the paper version save a very brief summary and just now I found nothing online. I know football is starting and other stories, but the Washington area does have Spanish-speaking citizens, you know?
If the tourney needs a thme song, I suggest Rush’s Territories.
Better the pride that resides
In a citizen of the world
Than the pride that divides
When a colorful rag is unfurled
With all the great Asian players, seems to me Spain flew under the radar early on.
Congrats to the Spanish ladies. Como se dice? – Bulldogs!
