I think the winner will come from the group above ... there are some good names at +3 (including Bang, Castle and The Zhangster), but too many players to jump over for them. I've seen only two of the players in person, so I'm putting some mythical money on Avery and Krauter. Despite all the hype, I think Amari is the real deal from tee-to-green ... didn't look particularly good putting at Cognizant on greens that were slow as mud ... August should be the polar opposite. Going for Krauter as a dark horse pick ... she is a mighty mite who punches above her weight ... did NOT fall apart after tripling Westchester's 4th hole near the end of her second qualifying round at last year's USWA.
Team Pano at Augusta's 18th tee ... there was enough time for everyone to get their promised practice round in The Main Room today.
BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! Bang birdied 12, 13, 15, 16 and 18. ... too bad about those doubles at 2 and 4.
Nice Politically-Incorrect shirt being worn by Wallin ... of course, there has NOT been brain-washing in Florida.
Amari airmailed the 15th green, WTH.
USWA champ Castle hit a low, smothered-pull with a wood or hybrid that bounced through the water banks at #13 and ended up on the green. Kupcho and Fassi looked like stud quasi-professionals in 2019 ... the players that have followed in 2021 and 2022 have not been in the same class, IMHO.
Regarding the players who bombed out yesterday, Stunkin' Duncan looked like a real player at the 2021 WBO ... now I'm not so sure. Hashimoto is the last winner of the APWAC ... a lot of good that did. Then there's Erica Shepherd ... I wonder if she has run up against the limits of her home-made grip and built-in hookitis ... someone please send her to Butch H. for a modest adjustment.
The Great McGinty finished at +5 ... she is still in the StarTrek college "transfer portal".
WAGR uses the strength of field to score amatures and give them points based on where they finished. As such, ANWA has the strongest amature field in all of it's rankings. The US amature etc are close, but this is tops.
Anna Davis jumped 54 spots to 46th. Brook Seay (Stanford) jumped 15 spots to 47th after playing mission hills. Kirsten Rudgeley jumped 5 spots after finishing 8th and ANWA Isabella Fierro played Mission Hills and jumped 9 spots. Latanna Stone, bless her heart, jumped 13 spots. Benedetta Moresco jumped two spots. Rachel Kuehn rose two spots.
For the second straight year, the collegians spit the bit, giving this trophy to a high-schooler, Anna Davis.
Why do you think that is? Are the high schoolers under less pressure? Is it a bit embarrasing? I'm sure the top schools appreciate the heads up on who to recruit. LOL June 1st who is going to be knocking on Anna's door? LOL
