Golf on the Rocks and Stacey Lewis

Posted by Terry


Although no longer a mizzy player as a result of standing on the right side of the ball I still take an interest in the mizzy tour pros. I was reading the book 'Golf on the Rocks' which is about a bloke playing 18 courses on 18 Scottish Islands ,a good read, as well as watching the lpga Australian Open this afternoon when I heard the commentator mention that Stacey Lewis split the fairway at 290 metres .What! 290 metres for a  woman . Sure enough she did . I decided to give 100% to the screen and mate those girls hit the ball a long way . They mentioned that pound for pound Stacey would be the biggest hitter on tour. She looks tiny beside the likes of Jess Korda.  I think my golf is on the rocks after watching what they can do. BTW there seemed to be quite a few players using jpx pros and one using mp64's

The girls are certainly very skillfull these days, driving and ball striking is superb - but their putting always seems to let them down (in general!).
It is a paradoxical but profoundly true and important principle of life that the most likely way to reach a goal is to be aiming not at that goal itself but at some more ambitious goal beyond it. - Arnold Toynbee

Guys, I have to say I learn so much from watching the pro women play golf both on television and in person. I've been to a few pro tourneys here in the US including a US Women's Open. Annika was still playing and killing the ball 280 yards down the middle, over and over. effortless power!
Their swing speeds are much closer to male amateurs and I enjoy watching these young guns on the ladies tour who are 5'7", 135 lbs, and hit the driver 270 down the middle, always in balance, 

I'm never going to produce the swing speed of Rory or Tiger and I don't hit my 7 iron 180 like Luke Donald. 
But if they can shoot sub-par rounds (stacey with a 63 in Thailand) then that gives me hope..balance, tempo, effortless power versus powerful effort...i am a big fan.

I can confirm this. I played with Kristie Kerr in the pro am at last years Women's Open at Hoylake & her driving & wedge play were spot on but she was Ertha Kitt at putting, she left everything short.

Still 10 million plus in winnings & 2 majors makes up for the odd 3 putt ;-)

A bit OT but I'm a great admirer of Stacey given the fact that she has had to deal with and overcome Scoliosis
