    The lpga has reached a all time low
    with conduct unbecoming of a American.
    Thank their lucky stars they didn’t play
    the Asian players it would be a one day
    tourney at best.Once again money has
    compromised another great sport!

    I though Wie was one of the better players for the U.S. Lang hung in there, too. Have to question some of the choices for the U.S. team. Some simply didn’t belong there. And how must Paula Creamer feel about having it handed it to her by a 17-year-old… a 17-year-old who, from my point of view, probably played better than most of the veterans on the U.S. team.

    I couldn’t get over how the Europeans made 20-30-foot puts look easy, while our girls were lipping out five-footers. So frustrating to watch.

    In the end, though, I think it safe to say that both teams are lucky they weren’t up against the Asian women. Things might have turned out differently. How long can the Solheim exclude them. It’s either that, or another tournament is created that more fairly represents the entire world of golf.
