Golf Australia Express : GA Express 249
U S PRESIDENT Donald Trump grabbed all the early headlines around the US Women’s Open when the USGA announced it would keep the event at his Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey, despite his controversial comments about women captured before his election. And Trump may yet overshadow the event again this week, with the Federal Aviation Administration slapping a no-fly zone restriction around the course, indicating a presidential visit is more than likely. But here’s hoping a Trump-led sideshow doesn’t detract from what promises to be one of the best US Women’s Opens in years. E F IRST up, while the golfing fraternity has been raucously praising the men’s game for the strong shape it currently finds itself in with so many players capable of winning at any one event, on the women’s side things are arguably just as dynamic. Little more than a year after most of us wondered if Lydia Ko would ever be toppled from the No.1 ranking again, she finds herself at No.4 and winless over the past 12 months, with a host of new contenders, led by So Yeon Ryu, knocking her back down to earth. And in a mark of the LPGA’s evenness, Ryu is the only multiple winner on Tour this year, with the victors of the 18 events thus far demonstrating the game’s true global status – Americans, South Koreans, a Swede, an Australian, a Japanese, a Canadian, a Thai and a Chinese are counted among them.
