There won’t be a grand slam in men’s golf again this year. But in the women’s game, Annika Sorenstam can win the third leg of the slam ths week at the US Women’s Open.
Sorenstam right now is having a better year than Tiger ever had, having won six of eight starts. Heck, that’s moving into Byron Nelson territory.
Unlike many others, I don’t view the women’s golf game as an inferior product—just different. Its like NASCAR vs Formula One—ok. bad example. At least NASCAR can get more than six cars going in any particular race.
But back to my point. Women’s golf is just as good—but in a different way. The same is true of women’s basketball. Or of any women’s sports.
I’ll be watching this weekend.
