No Easy Comparison
This year's U.S. Open was everything the USGA and fans could wish for: dramatic, dangerous, riveting and memorable. Not to take anything away from Juli Inkster's U.S. Women's Open victory, but hitting short irons to big, barely bunkered greens isn't appropriate for such a championship. The LPGA wants to be taken seriously as it chases the almighty corporate dollar, but playing majors on fluffy courses is not the way to achieve that goal.
