On and Off the Course: LPGA’s new policy might help, but other solutions needed



I don’t know if speaking English is the answer, but it could very possibly help. It might have other side effects also. It could cause even more foreign-born players to scoop up the golf scholarships to colleges, in order to give themselves time to learn the language before they join the tour.

Time will tell what kind of effect this policy will have on the LPGA. Meanwhile, what they really need to do to enhance their tour is to promote golf as a sport to young American girls. If the United States can continue to produce quality young players like Paula Creamer and Morgan Pressel, the competition will be great and the American fans will feel a connection too. There are so many sports options available to young girls now, golf is usually pretty far down on the list.

Quote of the Day- “Now I can go out and play golf and have some fun.” – Michael Phelps, U.S. Olympic swimmer, after winning his eighth golf medal at the Beijing Games.
