Well Ron Mon...You might actually have a clue. You'll have to write more than 3 or 4 paragraphs to convince me...but......there WILL be a small "firm" of women's tour players who move jointly so far beyonds what short, balding, retentive males think possible it will likely shrivel whatever useful parts they still retain.

Pinelli, you threaten ME with having a clue? I stumbled over one, once. I then apologized to my daughters for disrupting their game. As I look at the mug shots that adorn our blog staff, I guess McDonald, Balls Out and Baldwin are the only balding, retentive ones there. Good thing I used a picture of me with hair. The Tiger era has ended, long live the Tiger. The ladies time is now and tomorrow and the next day.

My sincerest apologies...a man without hair is..welllll. Tiger's era has most certainly not ended...I only meant to throw an idea out that the future will most certainly look different than we might simple mindedly imagine. For instance...there is only so long Open or PGA Championship courses can be made before the architects involved look more overrated than they really are. Are 500 yard par 4's really the imaginative answer?
After that are we really separating the equipment from the players? Or are we making a mockery of what golf is about?
I will illustrate with a point.....the ability to shape shots has (in my humble estimation) always been what truly separates the good from the especially good. Teeing it up and ripping it doesn't distinguish between John Daly and Tiger Woods...but being able to draw or fade a shot into a medium length par 4 does........That was why Woods beat Daly at Harding Park at the AMEX Championships...Tigers game contains subtleties that poor John cannot fathom. And so does Annikas! GP

Points well taken, Greg. Tiger has always worked at compiling a repetoire of shots throughout the 14-club set, whereas John seems content to learn the short game, guitar, trailer parking, sales ... he's a renaissance kind of guy, an Arkansas daVinci. Tiger's single-minded, linear living is what sets him apart, and he was born to it. And, he focuses more on three-foot putts. I just saw a stat that Fred Couples is worst on tour with a 97.2 percentage on three-foot putts. Sadly, John's once-in-a-blue-moon miss came at the worst time. imaginable.

500-yard par fours ARE what it is about, if they are downhill, as in 10 at Augusta. If not all can reach the downhill, as in 10 at Augusta, then they descend into injustice. You can't make twenty yards of carry the difference between an 8-iron and a 4-wood into the green.
