As you may recall a few years ago, the government offered Yani Tseng an absurd amount of money — in the range of $25 million — if the Taiwanese golfer exchanged her passport for a Chinese one. She turned it down. Shanshan “Jenny” Feng shot […]

This time Yani Tseng didn’t go near the trophy before the final round of the LPGA Championship.

Hells yeah! Christina Kim will indeed wear a microphone this upcoming Thursday at the McDonald’s LPGA Championship at Bulle Rock Golf Course. Can anyone say entertaining? A few weeks ago I joked with Christina about wearing a mike, but I said, “NFSW, perhaps?” She responded, “I don’t know what that means, but probably.” I have […]

Maria Hjorth sank a clutch downhill eight-foot slider to capture the season-ending LPGA Tour Championship at Grand Cypress Golf Club in Orlando, FL. She dropped her putter and lifted her arms with joy before her baby daughter Emily gave her a congratulatory hug. (Kodak moment!) Hjorth shot a final round even-par 72, five-under 283 for […]

“It was like going into a fan and getting an ice bucket thrown in your face,” said Kenny Ebalo, who is caddying for Andres Gonzales. Ebalo was referring to the chilly conditions on Thursday morning at Orange County National in Orlando, Florida, the site of this week’s PGA Tour Q-school. That’s right — it was […]
