Quote of the week comes from LPGA commish Ty Votaw, commenting on the tour’s new $1 million year-end playoff: “We didn’t talk to any of the other golf tours because we thought it was such a good idea, they would want to take it.”
Yeah…that’s the ticket. Because a year-end playoff is just so unprecedented. I’ve never heard of such a thing. (Well, except for maybe in some minor sports like, say, baseball.) Pity Tim Finchem for not thinking of it first.
Whether or not it’s actually a good idea for the LPGA is still a huge question. Even the players on tour are unsure about the concept, with some (read: Juli Inkster) flat-out criticizing the proposal. And it doesn’t help when the only player who really matters offers only a lukewarm endorsement.
Speaking of Annika, maybe it’s time the LPGA rethinks the new slogan it introduced last week: These Girls Rock.
Instead, let’s be accurate and go with this:
Annika Rocks…And The Rest of ‘Em are Still Better Than You.
