That this PGA listing uses the word “volunteer” so often makes it seem like they’re rubbing in the fact that they want suckers to pay to work 16 hours for free at the Women’s PGA Championship. Experience Olympia Fields Country Club in Illinois and get one of the (limited) food and water vouchers!
One of the weakest things to happen in sports this year was Lexi Thompson losing an LPGA major because some asshole who was watching the tournament at home tattled on her for placing a ball no more than an inch away from where she had previously marked it.
It should’ve been a runaway victory for Lexi Thompson, and it would’ve been if not for one tattletale viewer and some truly unfair rules. Thompson had a significant lead in the final round of the ANA Inspiration, the first LPGA major of the year, when a viewer wrote in to alert officials to a violation the previous day…
Three weeks ago, Anna Nordqvist won the ShopRite LPGA Classic. She was very excited! It was her fifth win in her seventh year on tour, and it came with her mother in attendance—on Mother’s Day in their native Sweden. “I’m just speechless right now,” Nordqvist said. “I fought hard today and can’t believe I’m sitting…
Kim Sei-Young won her LOTTE Championship playoff against Inbee Park with this marvelous hole-out for eagle from 154 yards away. It’s Kim’s second career LPGA victory, after winning the Bahamas LPGA Classic earlier this year. That win was, shall we say, not so dramatic.
A patron at the Ko Olina resort on Oahu for this weekend's LPGA event there suffered all manner of misfortune when high winds blew his hat into a water hazard. Then, upon trying to retrieve his hat, the golf fan lost his beer. He also, if we're to believe the very amused Golf Channel announcers, had a hell of a time…
Paulina Gretzky, Wayne Gretzky's daughter, was the cover model for the May issue of Golf Digest. A few female pro golfers are annoyed about it.
This fantastic photo was taken on the ninth hole of the LPGA Australian Open at Canberra, as Karrie Webb waited for a troop of kangaroos to clear the fairway. This is the same tournament where a Swedish golfer suffered a Black Widow spider bite while attempting to qualify. Australia, you're terrifying and magical and …
Former LPGA star Annika Sorenstam might be enjoying retirement from competitive golf, but she apparently still has a problem slicing. Yesterday, Sorenstam tweeted a photo of her stitched-up left index finger, which USA Today says she cut last Thursday while slicing chicken as she prepared dinner for friends and family…
I.K. Kim birdied 16 and 17 to be in position on 18 to sink this one-foot putt for a win. "She'll mark, and go through the routine and wait for that final group to finish up to make it official. And a likely..." GUHHHH.
Tipster Jeff H. shares this image he snapped off his tellie of Paula Creamer and some guy from the Sybase Match Play Championship in Gladstone, NJ. His claim: "I hear they are looking for a ratings boost and more caddies." For her part, Creamer seems to be doing well.
Because no one reads the newspaper, and SportsCenter's anchors are too perky for this early in the morning, Deadspin combs the best of the broadsheets and internets to bring you everything you need to know to start your day.
The Evian Masters offered car service and breakfast and a private golf critique on the Hudson with Natalie Gulbis, and when someone offers a town car, an omelet bar and golf lessons with a star, it's generally polite to accept.
The next time I'm hacking away on my local muni, I'm going to pretend like I'm snowboarding, because that's what Italian golfer Giulia Sergas does. Imaginary frostbite nipping at my windwhipped nose, I'll fit right in with the LPGA.
The ethnic composition of womens golf is what the US will be in 2042, when Michelle Wie will have a really good feeling about winning her first major. [Waggle Room]
