Who’s The Best Player In Golf?

Compared to the rest of the field, the best player in golf just might be Yani Tseng. She won twelve times last year and has won three of the five LPGA Tournaments this year. She’s as dominant as Tiger ever was.

But Tseng has not made nearly the impact on golf that Tiger has. Heck, she probably gets less press than the twentieth ranked PGA Tour Player. I think the problem is that the LPGA gets little respect. When Tiger was dominating, it was because he was “the best player ever.” Tseng, it is suggested, wins because she faces weak fields. When Tiger goes twenty under for a weekend, that is taken as a sign that he overpowered the course. When Tseng goes low, it’s because the courses are too easy.

I’m no radical feminist, but the gender bias bothers me. What I know after seeing LPGA players in person at the Jamie Farr is this:  those gals are good. They are top athletes playing at the top of their game. They do things with the ball that I can’t possibly duplicate.

Starting today, Tseng leads the LPGA into its first Major of the season (and also professional golf’s first Major), the Kraft-Nabisco. This one gets some airtime, at least:

  1. Radical feminist blames the exploitation of women on men. To a radical feminist, it is primarily man who have benefited from the subordination of women. To are seen to be exploited because they undertake unpaid labour for men by carrying out childcare and housework, and because they are denied access to position of power.
