The tournament starts thursday, so it's make your prediction time!

I predict a 76 and 77 for a 153 which means Annika will miss the cut.

Now you go.

its quite simple really

humans should compete against each other.

brettig [quoting someone else] said it best, the 'she is taking a male's spot' is a crock. there is obviously no explicit rule which does not allow her to compete. so, why not?

the real sparks will fly if the 'unthinkable' happens and she places in the top 10 or thereabouts. what if she wins an exemption to a future tourney? what if she gets into the masters?
i don't know what exemptions the colonial has available but one never knows...

the thing is, playing with a sponsors exemption wont really prove anything, either good or bad. it is just 1 tournament, and anything can really happen. if she really wanted to test herself she would try to qualify like everyone else that wants to play on the tour, than she would really know if she is good enough.

so men who have won tournaments they gained access to via sponsors exemptions shouldn't enjoy thier victory as much as others?
exemptions are there for a reason-to allow someone who didn't gain access to the tourney through conventional means the chance to enter and compete. if your beef is with exemptions than i can see where you are coming from, but they are fairly established and always provide the potential for excitement.

tomorrow is the first day of play, they make the cut after the second day, so to answer your question, Friday.

she has played very very well, and looks like she is having a great time out there, it's amazing she hasnt let the pressure get to her at all

she is just playing a very smart simple game, not trying to be macho, like the guys tend to be, which gets them in trouble

very impressive so far

she ended with a +1 71, not too shabby.

hey putting is what killed her, maybe he should get some tips from vijay

they said it was the easiest conditions the course could be, so there will be some low scores. she will likely need to do better than that tomorrow to make the cut.

we will see.


oh and when i said 76 and 77, i thought it was a par 72 course, so for a par 70 my predictions would have been 74 and 75. so i was a little high the first day, we will see tomorrow.

Excellent round, but its ironic that she putted badly - yes her strength is her tee to green game but she's also been pretty good at closing the deal on the greens, and it looks like she missed a few short putts out there today. The way the scores look though she'll probably have to better her score if she wants to make the cut.
