Former LPGA pro and major champion Karen Stupples, who is now a Golf Channel broadcaster, joined me to discuss the impossible position that the competitors at the U.S. Women’s Open have been put in, the various “controversies” and distractions that have put a cloud over the championship, and the likely circus that will ensue if/when Trump goes through with his plan to attend the U.S. Women’s Open over the weekend.

To be perfectly clear, this isn’t necessarily about politics. I repeat, THIS IS NOT ABOUT POLITICS. This is not about whether you lean left or right on the political spectrum, or if you’re a registered Democrat or Republican — Donald Trump has switched parties in various points of his life (which, of course, isn’t that unusual). This is not whether you support the GOP healthcare bill or if you believe in universal healthcare. For what it’s worth, I’m an Independent.

Mind you, this conversation could’ve been avoided had the President divested from his company and real estate properties, like all individuals in public office, including Presidents have in the past and are supposed to. Trump broke from this long-standing tradition and still owns the buildings and golf courses (which is arguably using the office of the President to enrich himself and bring business to his properties), so spare me the “stick to golf” comments — I’m just following the example set from the top.

Fueled by a controversial call — which many deemed unsportsmanlike — in one of the remaining four-ball matches Sunday morning, Team USA won nine of the 12 singles matches and overcame the largest deficit (four points) in Solheim Cup history and defeated Team Europe 14.5-13.5 at St. Leon-Rot Golf Club in Germany.

Let’s first take a look at the drama that occurred on the 17th hole in the four-ball match between Suzann Pettersen and Charley Hull vs. Alison Lee and Brittany Lincicome. The match was all square with two holes to play. Lee stepped up to a 12-footer for birdie to win the hole and just barely missed. She picked up the ball from a foot and a half, thinking she had heard it was conceded.

Round one of the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship at Westchester Country Club is in the books, and the afternoon wave certainly lit up the golf course, with Jenny Shin posting an impressive bogey-free seven-under 66 to take the lead.

“I started the round feeling a little uncertain,” said Shin. “I didn’t know how I was going to play, I really didn’t know. I talked to my psychologist last night about how I was freaking out for this round, so I tried to play as comfortable as I can, just like any other tournament. I tried not to think of it as a major and it turned out great. I had a couple bogey-free rounds last week, so I think I’m on a good run here.”

Brittany Lincicome earned her second jump into Poppie’s Pond when it was all said and done after a thrilling finish at the ANA Inspiration, the LPGA’s first major of the season. Lincicome, who overcame a four-shot deficit at the start of the day and didn’t realize the significance at the time, rolled in a 10-footer for eagle on the par-5 18th in regulation — yep, the 72nd hole — to get to nine-under for the championship.

Sarah Kemp: formerly "the next Karrie Webb".

It should come as little surprise, given the idiosyncrasies of Royal Melbourne’s test, that an Australian should lead the way after the opening round of the ISPS Handa Women’s Australian Open.

Few, however, could have anticipated that it would fall to New South Wales native Sarah Kemp to lead the field into the tournament’s second day.

Quite good: Tseng won 12 times in 2011.

Tiger and the PGA Tour are at Pebble Beach this week, but if you want to see a genuinely world-class field tackle an innovative piece of golf architecture, the Australian sandbelt, home of Royal Melbourne and the ISPS Handa Women’s Australian Open, probably has the edge over Monterey.

Brittany Lincicome and Stacy Lewis didn’t let the sweltering heat in the desert impact their games on Thursday afternoon during the first round of the Kraft Nabisco Championship. Playing in the afternoon wave when temperatures reached above 100 degrees, Lincicome and Lewis shot a pair of excellent six-under 66s to tie for the lead at the LPGA’s first major.

Brittany Lincicome: blazed her way to a 61 on Thursday

I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but Brittany Lincicome is pretty, pretty, pretty good.

Though it was Katherine Hull who left last week’s Navistar Classic with a winner’s cheque and trophy, it was Lincicome who finished the tournament in the most style, her final-round 65 leaving her one shot shy of a play-off with the Australian. Emboldened by that near miss, she’s burst out of the blocks at the CVS/pharmacy LPGA Challenge, shooting a spectacular opening 61 and leaping to a commanding four-shot lead in the process.
