For the first time in history, Saudi Arabia is hosting a women's golf event. It's this week! Inci Mehmet is among the ladies teeing it up. This course is on the Red Sea. One round is in the books; Inci is tied for 53rd at +3. Georgia Hall leads at -7.
Yay! Really happy about this here in Denmark. Emily is the best we've got by a fair margin. She even won a co-ed event here during the lockdown this spring. Watch out for great things from her!
From Denmark?! Did not know that. You must be looking at the LET only ... Nanna Koerstz Madsen would run circles around EKP. Check out my report of the 2016 USWO qualifier ... Nanna had The Look of a serious baller who was going places. I was right, except that she was half-nuts back in the day ... she was Nanna Cursed Mad. She has calmed down a lot since then.
I know of both Nanna (and Nicole) well... just don't think they have much winning potential. Nanna is super talented, but her mental game is a mess and don't see that changing soon. Think she's been cut at least half the time she's played this year.. Can't remember the last time she came close to a win. (Lotte 2019 iirc) Emily, on the other hand, is way stronger mentally. She ended up in a playoff at the LPGA Scottish Open.
Ha, I don't mean to sound like I'm ripping on Nanna. Seriously, I've rooted for her plenty. I just think Emily has more wins in her future.
Time will tell! 😊
Are you in DK?
One thing I find curious about the Danish female golfers is they all have such hot tempers, which is rather un-Danish.
Uh, no, the closest I've come to Denmark is opening a can of holiday sugar cookies.
EKP had a pretty good record of cuts made when she first joined the LPGA ... then she forgot how to play golf and ended up back on the LET ... apparently a one-way ticket because her profile has been expunged from LPGA website.
Larsen usually follows her good rounds with bad rounds ... at least she cuts a cool image with a Mizuno bag. I remember when Oliver Brett (aka Man Bun) was on her bag, before moving on to MUCH bigger and better opportunities with DK (Danielle Kang).
