Golf Australia Express : June 2014
For their part, the LPGA players seem far more excited and have been more outspoken about the concept than their male counterparts. Suzann Pettersen has already gone straight to the top in seeking an edge at the women's event, picking Tiger Woods' brain as the former world No.1 sits out the men's tournament with his injury woes. "I've been talking to several players and caddies," Pettersen said. "I even talked to Tiger last week and tried to get advice from him. All he had to say was he knew the course really well, but it has changed a lot since he was last there." Teen whiz Lydia Ko said she was grabbing a rare chance to watch the men go round before teeing it up herself. "I'm going to go there and watch them play a little bit," the Kiwi said. "Hopefully, I can get some autographs. I've already got my favorite player, Phil Mickelson, so maybe I can get my No.2, Adam Scott. A lot of girls [on tour] apparently like him." Karrie Webb said she was worried the course would be battered and bruised by the time the women got there, given there'll be a week of men's divots and public trampling before the ladies arrive. "The USGA seems pretty confident they can go back-to-back and produce a course in quality condition in the second week,'' Webb said. "There's not much point in wasting a lot of energy about it now. Even if it's not in the shape you would expect for a US Open, we'll be able to play the same course (as the men). "That's where we're going to play and I'm really excited to play Pinehurst No. 2."
