    It’s never easy. Just ask Piercy.

    But with respects to Scott Brooke is a real deal champion of the women’s game.

    She seems to be benefitting from her Changes with the putter. Still shaky at times but making more of those shaky ones.

    I don’t know if i would call her spunky. She is absolutely a class act. There is like nothing not to like about her.

      That’s why she’s Canada’s golfing sweetheart….going to left-hand-low helped a lot…..I get a bit nervous for her when her sister sometimes points at the putt line by using the end of the flagstick and hovering it over the line, it’s shaking all over the place and one little slip, it touches the green and voila!! a penalty….

        That’s not a penalty anymore Tom. She can touch with the green with flag. She can even point at the green with her finger now.

        You can blame the usga for creating that confusion.

        As I predicted years ago the usga new rules only made people with some rules knowledge confused. And people that never really knew rules still don’t know them.

          Hmmmm, I need to attend a rules seminar!! It’s been a while since I went to one.

            If you don’t have it yet Get the usga app.
            They have nice videos and graphics explaining different drops and things.
            And of course plenty of rules to read, including focus on new rules.
            It’s a pretty good app. I wish they had more videos and cool graphics to learn from. The girl in the videos is like a celebrity crush in my book. She was like the only person I got a bit nervous walking bye in Kentucky. I wanted to say something but -I don’t know -i didn’t want to sound like a dork.
            Meanwhile I’m chastising everyone else. Lol
