    Deserving champ.
    Funny Nelly herself mentioned the money creating pressure earlier in the week.
    But the real story is the format,
    #LOVE IT!
    I’m still bitter about 5 majors but Whan has my appreciation with this 5$ million purse and perfect finale.
    It was literally awesome watching the top 6o ladies competing for this special prize, no confusion, no systems, no head starts, just put up or shut up.
    I don’t even know what position Kim entered the Globe finals, but that’s the beauty of it, unless it’s a Charlie with the last golden ticket, it doesn’t really matter. Just gotta be in it to win it.
    Whan already reduced the field from 7o, and it is arguably still too big, but it’s also perfect. The more the merrier. The prizes would be more dramatic with a smaller field.
    Hopefully these purses only continue to grow, and before we know it regular tourney champs are making Half million and up and the globe champ alone is taking home 5 mill. And up.
    Imagine the pressure then…

      For sure, this was a lot of dough for the girls and yes, it was fun to watch. I think we’re seeing a changing of the guard in American golf with Lexi starting to fade a bit….

        Yes and no on Lexi.
        Lexi is like Michelle, ultra talented but questionable technique imo. The mind seems to get in the way too. And Injuries.
        Those huge Lexi gouges don’t seem to work for her like they used to.
        I would like to see Lexi try competing by picking it clean…see what happens.

          In other words, a little more shallow coming into the ball…..I totally agree!
