I never heard of her either until today. Very young and a pretty good story on a pretty good weekend for women athlete. Rags to Riches at my home track, Belmont. Pretty good stuff.

It's hard to call an 18 year old a no name but it does lend credence to the fact that there might of actually been some other great young players out in the world.

The fact that Na Oh Min is NOT American plays a big part in her total lack of attention from everyone. She has already placed fifth in an event this year and nothing was said about that!. A rookie, only 18. Now if that was an American rookie there would have been a huge made over that. This really isn't fair on the part of all the great International players. Take Lorena Ochoa, who doesn't even have a proper sponsor! I find that to be unbelievable, especially when the young Americans are so OVERHYPED. It's ridiculous.

Go Oh Min!!! Claim the youngest player to win a major and make Miss Piggy cry.

Otis. If you're going to root for the kid, at least know her name. On Min. You're right that she did not get much attention. And Lorena deserves much more attention.

Of course, American players will get more hype. That is the nature of the business end of things. Also it is a societal tradition of want of a better term. We are not the only culture like this. Ai Miyazato has a media contingent bigger than the one following Bush around. We are not the only country prone to follow our homegrown talent.

Actually I had meant to post to take you to task over the anti Pressel bashing. Then again, Morgan does fine without my help. All she does is show up, hit the best shots she can, and then goes home. She will help womens' golf and make all of them earn more money.

Not sure the heck to make of Pettersen. When what Mick did at the open at the Kraft, I figured she might need a season to get over it. She must be a tough lady to do in the weeks after that.

Could her abilities have kicked in or is she just playing streaky golf?? If not for a couple holes at the Kraft, she would have two majors in the bank for the year along with another nice win in a high profile tournament. All of a sudden she looks very strong. She is sure long off the tee.
