It was great to see the ladies back. Danielle looked in form. Gotta feel a bit for Celine missing that putt after the great approach on 18. Already looking forward to next week.

Cool didn't realize LPGA is back. I need to watch more of them, as their golf is more relatable...but they'd still kick my ass all over a course.

Marathon Classic (Toledo) coming up this weekend. We have gone there is previous years - great venue for being 'up close'

I stand corrected. Thanks for setting me straight

Funny anecdote that I believe, originated from Inverness.  We are all aware that in the days before the PGA Tour existed, the PGA ran the Tour.  The PGA was trying to help the LPGA get off the ground in the 1940's.  They had a mixed field tournament of PGA and LPGA players called the All-America Open.  Betty Hicks won by 4 shots over Byron Nelson.  Byron took the $10,000 first place prize and recognition for continuing his 11 tournament win streak.  Hicks was given a $500 check and told to get lost.

And there is still quite the disparity between paychecks so nothing has changed. I get that sponsors have a lot to do with that.

The story is detailed quite nicely in the documentary "The Founders" on Amazon Prime.  If memory serves, Sam Snead was bitching about the event in the parking lot afterward.  Said something to Louis Suggs.  Suggs deadpanned, "I don't know what your bitching about Sam, you weren't even second!"

It's a great documentary for anyone interested.

The PGA Tour wholly subsidizes the Champions Tour.  Which is virtually unwatchable.  A large portion of that money should go to subsidizing the LPGA and Korn Ferry rather than a bunch of senior citizens who have already won millions so they can play for more millions. 

But that's a discussion for another day.  I thoroughly enjoyed the little bit of the Drive-On at Inverness we got to see on TV.  I chose to watch it over the Swamp-Ass at TPC Initech.

In the Harvey Penick books, he talks about this a lot as he was instrumental in getting women's pro golf off the ground. And how unfairly the women were treated even back then. It's something like 12 of the first 14 women in the golf HoF were his pupils.
