    The impressive,pretty, and 18 year old Morgan Pressell wins her first!!!!

    Here's a brief description from the press.



    Rancho Mirage, California - Precocious professional Morgan Pressel won the Kraft Nabisco Championship Sunday, the first major championship on the 2007 women's golf calendar.

    Pressel, still just 18 but in her second season on the US women's tour, captured her first LPGA victory, firing a bogey-free three-under-par 69 for a 3-under total of 285.

    Norway's Suzann Pettersen, who started the day sharing the lead with South Korean Se Ri Pak, surrendered the lead in a stretch of three late holes with a bogey at 15, a double-bogey at 16 and a bogey at 17 that saw her fall a shot behind Pressel.




    Pettersen, unable to birdie 18 to force a playoff, finished with a 74 for 286, tied for second with Britain's Catriona Matthew (71) and American Brittany Linicome (72).

    Contrast how little hype this will generate compared to what it would be like if Michelle Wie had won. Eventhe fact that Pressell's part Jewishwon't change anything. Thank God Wie's game has fallen apart for an extended period of time; that's the only way we could have gotten this brief respite from Wie-mania.


    Anyway, I'm stoked for The Masters this week, my favorite golf tournament and one of my favorite sports events.
