    I really liked Lydia as a young golfer, but I fear that her sudden rise to fame has gone straight to her pretty little head.


    Side note - I see that South Korea represents six of the top ten money makers for 2017.

    Ko turned 20 today. I think it was her parents who didn't get along with the caddy.

    The Players Championship starts tomorrow.
    Almost $2 million to 1st place.....
    Sneds is on the sidelines rehabbing a bad hand that he injured playing at the Masters.
    Jason Dufner for the win.

    It's pretty brutal. I chipped a nail getting into a golf cart last week. I would post a photo, but there may be women and children viewing.

    Erin Hills is not far south of us. Numerous locals worked and volunteered all week including my better half. I scored a free ticket to Friday's round and checked it out... I was more interested in checking out the natural areas and geology than the actual golf. What a magnificent piece of land that was shaped by glaciers 10,000+ years ago. The TV coverage did not do justice to the topography at all, nor do my pics below. Huge hills, small hills, all kinds of random glacial deposits of sand, gravel, and boulders. The holes generally run between the massive hills and ridges and there was minimal material moved to create the course. Not a golfer, but it was a fun hike to see the geology of most of the course and see some of the best golfers hit some shots here and there.

    Highest point on the course between the 8 and 12 fairways...best view on the course.

    IIRC Hole #4

    Hole #2 (or #3)
