Sorenstam seems to be having more and more rules "incidents" lately.

Sort of glad Creamer, right or wrong, stuck to her guns on this one. Seems as though nobody wants to chance upsetting some of the best players in the game.

But it went on way too long. If in disagreement, the rules official should hear both sides of the story, take a look for her/himself, and make a ruling. Period. Shouldn't drag on for more than five minutes in this case. No instant replay, no crying, just give your side and make the judgment.

If they were still out there debating, I would still be watching.

Hey Cheap Bastard,

Wasn't the tournament on cable? Do you actually ante up to get cable?

Sort of takes away from your spendthrift image, doesn't it?

[I]There was no splash. They found the ball inside the red hazard line, plugged.[/I]

The fact that the ball was plugged brings into question whether it hit land. Second, Sorenstam's ball normally moves R-L. Add those two up and Creamers view is sound, unless that was a very strong crosswind.

Paula likes to think of herself as Annika's rival. That's why she has absolutely no fear in standing up to her. I think Paula has a way to go yet though to rival Annika.

Mark, I was hoping a cat figth would break out between the two leading to both Paula and Annika fighting on the course, pushing each other into one of the lakes, and well, you can see where I am going with this....

All Paula succeeded in doing, was making Annika angry.
Is it a good idea to make the worlds best female player angry?
Probably not, given the ass whippin' Annika gave Paula, beating her by 6 shots.

I do enjoy when Annika gives the youngsters a lesson (despite being a Wie and Creamer fan).

Annika is losing a little credability with me since she attended one of the very demanding USGA Rules Seminars (4 days) I did back in 1997. Her disappointment at the now famous "please take that shot over" chipin during the Solheim was way too soon after the seminar for her to have "forgotten" that rule. She recently pushed another Rules Official to the limit over the line of sight incident and now this. It's one thing to lose credability with me, another to lose it with the people who will be calling the Rules on a daily basis. If Creamer was right, that was a nifty little purported 190 yard advantage. Annika is way too good to need that. Hey Annika, I'm off for another 4 day stint on the Rules in March....care to come along for a refresher course...??!! Perhaps it's time.

Paula certainly should consider Annika as her rival. She is already #2 in her first year so her goal must be to be #1. The only way that happens is to beat Annika. This is good for golf and the fans. This will motivate Annika to stay at the top of her game. It will be fun to watch Paula. Morgan and the others chase Annika.

Paula should indeed try to beat Annika. The only thing is she is NOT Annika's rival at this stage. If she thinks she is, she is kidding herself.

Paula should continue to work hard and try to improve her game, in the knowledge that if she improves DRASTICALLY, she could then be Annika's rival.

It certainly is good for Paula to try to be the best. She should look forward and try to catch Annika sure, but at the same time be humble enough to admit, that there is a long way to go in order to be referred to as Annika's rival.
At the present time in women's golf, Annika is miles ahead (like Tiger in the mens). Paula is among a group of chasers, along with Kerr, Wie and many more. Maybe next season, Paula might pull clear, as a clear 2nd best by some distance, but I doubt she will challenge for number 1.

Paula needs to use her clubs to make a point and not her mouth. She embarrassed herself to all the fans watching on TV and to her sponsors who were on that silly pink cap and who were the main sponsors of the event. Anika is untouchable right now and taking cheap shots at her at the Solheim Cup and at this instance only shows how much better she is than the field and to what lengths the others will go to if thier game is not up to par. Unfortunately, golf as we all know brings out the worst in some people and Paula showed her real self here.
