Winds of change

Here's a pretty safe statistic: If you sit down to watch a golf's pretty safe to say the only thing to mess up you watching an afternoon relaxing watching the tube is either your wife or rain.

...but wind?!

Friday presented that kind of day for me. Until I started realizing that this was not the wind that we should be concerned about...'s the wind of change happening in Women's golf.

Paula Creamer (of Pretty in Pink Fame...ok, not really) held off what has been a too-common occurrence in women's golf...the domination of foreign golfers in the LPGA. Paula showed that the once labeled an all American girl with all the tools, but can never win the big one, showed that US-bred golfers can still win one for the Gipper. Her win at Oakmont drew a line in the sand saying "We're not gonna take it" and here we come. where did I put that vuvuzela?

Thanks for reading. Keep it in the short-grass,
