Ironically, Mickey Wright is less excited about big time women's golf than most people. "I wouldn't trade what I experienced, and the way golf was when I was winning, with our dinky purses of $1,000 first prize, for anything. It was more fun. I won the Colgate in 1973 and $25,000, and I didn't enjoy it the same. I love the money, but I didn't enjoy the big feel of it."
Well, different strokes for different folks. Wright shot a 72 on Saturday and a horrible 42 on the last nine Sunday and ended with a 78 that left her tied for 28th. That still was worth $425. Twenty years ago, when Sally Little was four and Mickey Wright already was becoming legend, that would have been a nice check.
