Inbee Park has always had a cult following. The other day, one of her biggest fans was pantomiming her slow, syrupy backswing. “Inbee, that’s my girl,” said Steph Curry, a scratch golfer who is also the point guard for the Golden State Warriors. “Whenever she’s in contention I try to watch. That’s the tempo I want. And if I had that stroke…” Yes, even one of the greatest athletes in the world lusts after Park’s proficiency with the putter.
I didn't watch any of this one. For once, I'm taking an interest in the AON Risk Reward gimmick, but that stupid LPGA website has no stats on it. MHL and Torres made eagle-twos on the par-4 15th on Sunday ... did that count towards the award? Was it a brief oasis of glory for those two, before getting back on the road to Palookaville?
Mi Hyang is not in the field for Pure Silk and no field is posted yet for the Match Play in LV ... and I can't find one word on how that field will selected. Smokeshow's brother has been on the bag of Team MHL for over 2 1/2 years, which has to be a record, but it also means the axe could be falling soon.
Shibuno Fever, Ana Belac and Gabi Ruffels are the three invitees to Pure Silk. Vickie Hurst is the first reserve for Pure Silk and only 28 players are in the Monday qualifier. Ruffels also received an invite to this week's Symetra event.
Meaw has gone mainstream ... now gaming a Callaway driver and wedges (below). A blurry pic from Gainbridge might show her with a Cally iron, but I'm not sure. When I saw her as a Symetra rookie in 2018, her bag was a GolfWrx dream - RomaRo woods, Fourteen Golf FH-900 Forged irons, and Fourteen Golf FH Forged V1 wedges.
