Stop The Madness!

Such a travesty what happened to Lexi.

Plenty of players misplace the ball as Lexi did on Saturday. I’ve seen it many times. Ones that I’m working for, or playing with. It’s totally inadvertent. It happens especially when the player approaches from the side and loses orientation with the hole. It would be pointless to call it on them because it’s impossible to prove. This is not to say that moving it purposely to avoid something in their line does not happen. I’m sure it does.

Why wait until 2019 to change that rule? The LPGA needs to do it now.

For those curious on the weight of the tour bags we lug around, so was I. Took my luggage scale to the course last week and it came to 36 lbs. Add more for bad weather with all the rain gear. Depending how the day is going, it may vary considerably. 🙂

Managed to get the same room at the Studio 6 as during the Founders Cup week. I like it when a plan works out.

I’ve been wearing BeVisable calf compression sleeves this season and I’m convinced they work. Not as tired when we finish but I look like a dork. Then again, is it the placebo effect? Heard all the top athletes are wearing compression sleeves so I fit right in. 🙂 If you see more caddies wearing them, don’t forget where it all started. Trend setter!

The last two weeks I’ve been skipping my daily GOFIT Ultimate ProGym workout, for various reasons, but got back into my routine yesterday. I be feelin’ good.

Then there was this:

I do! Now give me that 4-iron. Some LPGA players have their husbands as caddies

Lexi Thompson’s ANA Inspiration penalty is another major blunder for golf

    How about an immediate requirement by the LPGA that every committee must have a local rule stating scores cannot be changed within an hour of a competitor teeing off in the next round? The would prevent this situation and allow for the victim and those near the lead to change their strategies before starting a round even if there was a weather delay causing a round to finish the same day that the next round starts.

    Not just the ball marking issue, but being emailed in from a home viewer the next day! I am assuming there was an observer/ referee with the group? If they or any other players in the group didn’t call it out I think it should be mute. When the round is over, score cards signed, that’s it. Am I wrong?

    Get rid of the armchair referee BS!

    I used to wear SKINS compression (long john type) clothing, mainly in the colder months for 2 reasons. Keeps you warmer and prevents being tired at the end of the round, both physically and mentally. Compression garments definitely work.

    Haven’t played or touch a golf club for over 6 years, but hope to get back to it this year.

    Seems like you tote one of the lighter bags. Did you try weighing others?
