Ricoh British Open – Round One

The rain didn’t deter low scoring, in fact, probably aided it. Plenty of red on the board. Looks like a low cut. Possibly under par. Maybe the wind will blow tomorrow to add a little spice to the proceedings.

Nicole Castrale fights through hip injury at Women’s British Open


From Beth Ann Baldry – “I can’t expect to not play well this week and then make the team.” – Michelle Wie on the Solheim. She opened with a 74.

The Lew Crew is staying at the Dunvegan this year, where Lorena Ochoa celebrated her 2007 victory here. A Texan and a Scot own the place.

From Sophie Gustafson – Locked out.. Climbed a very sharp iron fence and a 7 foot wall to get to the balcony. Glad I left my window open..

My Nexus 7 has arrived. Charging.

Then there was this:

History in the Making, and in the Dark

Nicklaus’ Korea course to host ’15 Presidents Cup

Charley Hull hoping for Solheim Cup nod – An opening round of +4 doesn’t help.

    Why would Wie even be considered for a Captain’s pick…?? Man, she’s riding her name like a surfer rides a wave.

    She is overated, over- hyped, and over paid.

    If Mallon chooses Wie over Gerina Piller, Jennifer Johnson or anyone else, they should run her out of town. Tar and feathers probably to harsh. Although I wouldn’t be surprised to see Mallon cave in to Nike, Kia, the TV suits, her parents, and Michael Whan. Wie can’t even be in the conversation based on 2012-13 results. Experience is WAY overrated. Plus her last “experience” was 1 -3.

      Good observation. I didn’t even factor in those influences of sponsers, TV, politics, and daddy. Since we are talking payola, if Mallon is getting a kickback, it better be a huge one. Otherwise take Bu88les ( MW) out of the equation.

      Bookem…you saw that coming…nice call

    If Wie is selected, it will be “job for the boys – I mean girls”.

  4. Bookem Danno says:

    Say it isn’t so! It was very obvious. Nike and Michael Whan made the picks. Meg Mallon is gutless. No spine. Why have three captains?? They don’t do anything but act like (fill in the blank). They ignore 2 years, one year, one month of meritorious play, and make a chicken poop pick for all concerned.
