Looks like there’s a brouhaha erupting regarding the new ladies mini-tour started by one of my former bosses (oh, there’s been so many), Dina Ammaccapane. Known as The Grasshopper Tour, it competes directly with The Cactus Tour which has been around for six years and run by Mike Brown. The rub is that Dina and many of her friends played on The Cactus Tour and is now in direct competition with it.
I don’t know all the ins and outs and I’m not taking sides. One part of me says that competition is good. The other part says that loyalty trumps profit. Either way, I send out thanks for the extra fodder for my blog. Pickins have been slim lately. It will be interesting though to see which tour the players pick.
Malinda Johnson, a former LPGA player, has taken umbrage with the start-up tour and posted this critique on their Facebook page. Here is what she wrote and the banter that followed.
Then there was this:
