I have seen many a rant on Twitter by women getting upset at people like myself for calling the ladies game “relatable”. In this post, I examine from close experience whether it really is or not.
What a great result for Lilia Vu. She is a great example of perseverance and never giving up. After losing her card in her first year as a LPGA pro she came back really strongly this year and continued her impressive streak by capturing her first major title.
This weekend climaxed with the WGC World Matchplay final – the winner of this weekend was matchplay. This is the final ever playing of this event and it highlighted what a different and fascinating format this version of golf really is.
There was no DP World Tour action this weekend but there were a couple of other noticeable happenings elsewhere. Former world number one Jin Young Ko returned to the winners circle in Singapore.
This was a non-elevated event for the USPGA but that didn’t mean there was no excitement. A water ball on the 72nd hole led to a playoff. The LPGA went to the 72nd hole. The DP World tour effectively had 3 players with a chance of winning on the final hole. Oh, and there was LIV.
3 of the major golf tours had events this weekend and some familiar names were on top of the podiums. A big shout out to Jon Rahm, Thorbjørn Olesen and Lydia Ko. Here are some of the talking points.
I have to say that I really enjoy watching the LPGA. Not that I would come even close to beating any of the ladies in a match there is a certain air of realism to their games. They are methodical, lacking real egos and they hit the ball around the same distance as me.
