Not going to lie, I was pulling for her for a number of reasons, first and foremost coming from NDSU, which plays football in the FCS Division--well they don't play football there, they dominate it th

Given the scores, this Ladies Open wasn't a cakewalk. My hats off to all the players that made it though the weather and course conditions. 

I give Amy credit for holding it together and ending up in 2nd pl. - it had to be a major shock for her to hear about her FIL. She'll be back in the game. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy

I’m looking forward to this tournament, but I don’t really like that it’s being played on two courses. US opens are difficult enough let alone having to learn two courses in those conditions. It’s great the men are on a break so the ladies get some more attention. I will be rooting for Minjee (as always) to win her first major. I was also happy to see Hee Jong Lim in the field. I watched some of the KLPGA on YouTube, and I like her game.

I agree with you as regards to the two courses. It couldn't be helped though because you couldn't ge 156 players around one course in December before darkness.

Not much attention here on the forum for the 2020 Women's U.S. Open.  Nobody picking winners like a PGA event, let alone a major championship.  Why is that?  Apparently, the USGA promotion...  #WomenWorthWatching just doesn't stir up excitement for women's golf in December.

Who came up with #WomenWorthWatching?  I understand it's mission of achieving gender equity and it has to be supported by PGA pros, but does it have a negative connotation for all other women in the world?

My pick is Yealimi Noh who had a great chance to win last week.  I think she is a new face for U.S. women's golf, similar to Morikawa for the PGA tour.

I would have to go with Danielle Kang.  She has been playing well and due to win a major.

Why does Golf Channel refer to this major as the U.S. Women's Open, but it was the AIG Women's British Open?

Yea, I'm not so skookum on that either.  Sometimes I just feel things/initiatives are simply overplayed at times.  Personally, I love watching the LPGA and see as many (maybe more) of their events ae the men's tour.  The two course format for this event is pretty cool. Sounds like weather is going to turn sour and the later tee times are in for some added challenge in club selections.

Unlike the PGA tour, I don't have LPGA favorites (or villains). But I'll watch because I know I should be trying to emulate the tempo & swings of the LPGA pros, and NOT the PGA guys. My distances are in the same ballpark as LPGA pros, not at all near the average PGA players much less the monster hitters...

I will be pulling for the amateur Papp. The field needs to falter above her to have a shot.

I missed this thread catching up now. Looks like bad weather today.
The amateurs are hanging in there.

Yup.  Looks like even moving the tee times earlier could not outrun Mom Nature. Plus, presuming they can restart tomorrow, conditions will be marginal and might affect the current trend line for some players at the top.  Dang.  I was looking forward to hanging out and watching today.

Looking forward to watching the coverage tomorrow;  I guess that is a benefit of working from home.

I was hoping Lexi would have a better showing . With a +5, her brother may be back on the bag.

Bryson's caddie is maybe thinking he should have taken the vacation instead of looping for Lexi.

I thought that was an odd choice - but what do I know.

I'm always hoping for a strong showing from the American players... particularly at a US Open event.  There are a few that might be able to chase down Shibuno.

Amy Olsen still has a chance - but the grief of her FIL's passing will certainly have an effect.

Just saw that news clip.  Hopefully it will inspire her to win it for him but no doubt she must be playing with a heavy heart.
