Phatlum's Shanshan Feng-like near-hole-out to beat Lewis had Ruthless Mike wondering if Stacy is as snake-bit as Greg Norman. Not yet. Ryu can also stake a claim to the title, as she lost to Sei Young Kim in September on the KLPGA when Kim made 2 final-round eagles in her last 10 holes! But my own personal nominee is Ai Miyazato, who got to watch her brother Yusaku win on the Japan Tour yesterday. Twice in a row at the LPGA Founders Cup she's run into the buzzsaw of the world #1 being the world #1--Ya Ni Tseng in 2012 and Stacy Lewis in 2013. Ya Ni actually held Ai-sama off twice in 2012, just a few weeks earlier at the Honda LPGA Thailand. Too long ago to count? Well, Ai-sama was making a charge in late September on the JLPGA, looking like she was headed for her 1st win there since 2009, only to fall apart down the stretch and hand the trophy to Na-Ri Lee.
Let's face it. Golf is cruel. And that's how/why we love it. Right?
