    Inbee Park, a South Korean born fattie, won the Kraft Nabisco Championship, held at Rancho Mirage, California, by a runaway six strokes. The tournament was known for a long time -- before everything became ultra-corporatized in our wonderful land -- as the Dinah Shore Classic and is the first of five majors held by the LPGA every year.

    Park's victory marks the 8th straight LPGA major won by an Asian. The good news is that The Masters begins on Thursday. Asians are still a very small contingent of the best players on the PGA Tour, and the best one by far -- half-Oriental quarter-black Tiger Woods -- is regarded not as an Asian or biracial by the corporate media but as a full-blooded Negro in the service of Caste System propaganda.

    American Stacy Lewis won the British Open, defeating Na Yeon Choi and Hee Young Park by two strokes. Her victory ended a streak of 10 straight majors won by Asians, including the last three in a row by Inbee Park, who finished well back. It was Lewis' second major; it was after her first one that the Asians started their 10 majors winning streak.

    Europe slaughters the U.S. in the Solheim Cup, winning 18-10, and on U.S. soil yet. One can only imagine how lopsided it would be if the Americans went head to head against the Asians in such an event.

    I actually watched a good bit of it on Sunday. The Americans couldn't putt, but I did enjoy watching some of the competitors line up their putts. The women's game is easier on the eyes than it was 20 years ago.

    19 year old Lexi Thompson won the Kraft Nabisco Championship today, the first major of the year. She is the second youngest female player to win a major.

    Lexi started the day tied with Michelle Wie for the lead but played a flawless round and Wie never challenged her. Her victory is doubly nice because if Wie had won the media would have re-started the long-stalled Wie hype machine.

    Like Wie, Lexi was also a child prodigy but received only a tiny percentage of the publicity that Wie did. But she has had a far better pro career, with today's win her fourth on the LPGA tour already. In the meantime the now 24 year old Wie has yet to win a major and has but two tour wins.

    In regard to what Awake in America posted above, the women's tour is most definitely easier on the eyes than it used to be. Natalie Gulbis unfortunately never became a major star, but there are few if any obese bulldykes among the top American golfers anymore and most of them are cute, Lexi being a good example. Some of the Asians are quite heavy.

    Next week is The Masters. Can't wait!

    18 year old blonde Canadian Brooke Henderson defeated 19 year old Lydia Ko on the first hole of a playoff to win the Women's PGA championship today, a major. Ko was going for her third straight major and is the top ranked female golfer in the world. Henderson is ranked fourth.

    Hopefully Henderson will have some staying power. There was only one other White finisher among the top 12 finishers in this event with the rest being Asians. The LPGA is dominated more than ever by Asians, and they are getting better at younger ages; the average age of winners on the LPGA Tour so far this year is just 21 years old.

    It's curious how despite all the Title IX discrimination in sports against men and in favor of women, and all the endless "you go girl" feminist propaganda from the media, there continues to be a dearth of White American female stars, at least in golf and tennis. Annika Sorenstam, a Swede, was the last dominant White female golfer, and we know how bad it's been in tennis for a long time. I don't follow soccer but there seems to be almost no White female American sports stars these days, unless one considers the likes of half-men like Rhonda Rousey, and I don't.

    I guess the proportion of US female women star athletes is going to rise as it is now okay for a man to identify as a woman any time they want, and woe to anyone that tries to stand in their way. I think in a few years all the top women golfers and tennis players will be guys in a dress. Going to be a bummer for all those lesbians that turn out for the events, which would be a richly deserved irony.

    Does anyone have a theory as to why oriental women do so well in golf while oriental men have had little to no success ?

    There's starting to be more Oriental men doing well in PGA tournaments, but it's still nowhere near what has taken place on the LPGA Tour. There's no doubt Korea is the driving force behind it, with 8 of the top 15 ranked female golfers being from that country alone. They locate talent at a very young age and really push to develop them.

    The women's game is more accuracy and finesse than power, while power has become more and more important in the men's game; Asian men tend to be smaller and less powerful than White men, whereas that isn't as much of a handicap for the women's game. It could also be that the talent pool is far larger among White men than White women as most golfers in the U.S. at least are male, which makes it easier for Asian girls to break through.

    Probably a big trickle-down effect of the Title IX college laws. There are a lot of university scholarships to go around for fit American high school girls. Apart from basketball and track (although even there, still to a greater extent than white male athletes), white female athletes are scoring big on these free $100k+ tickets. That will spread out the talent pool.

    Also surely worth noting is the relatively androgynous treatment of sports in the post-feminism Western (white) nations. Since a woman can obviously do anything any man can do (except pee standing up), an athletic Western girl will be encouraged to try "all the sports" rather than only those more catering and flattering to women, ie tennis, golf, swimming, cross-country running, etc.

    Combine a sport like golf, categorically unisex, with the stereotypical 'tiger mom' canon and the general non-chalance from white girls, and there you get the disconnect. You will never see it in something like MMA.

    And here are your top ten finishers for the 2017 U.S. Women's Open. So much for the legacy of Kathy Whitworth, Mickey Wright, Patty Berg, JoAnne Carner, Betsy King and all the other all-time great American golfers. Drum roll please:

    1. Sung Hyun Park
    2. Hye-Jin Choi (a)
    3. Mi Jung Hur
    4. So Yeon Ryu
    T5. Carlota Ciganda (Spaniard)
    T5. Jeongeun6 Lee
    T5. Shanshan Feng
    T8. Sei Young Kim
    T8. Mirim Lee
    T8. Amy Yang

    I noticed also today that Asian Americans finished 1-2 in the girls junior championship at Wimbledon. Apparently the relentless "you go girl!" feminist exhortations aren't working well with White American girls when it comes to sports.

    I have been to two women's golf tournaments in my life, but the thing that stood out in my memory was the Asian women was the first to the practice range and the last to leave the range. They also went straight to the range after their round and worked on whatever they had trouble with that day, i saw very few American ladies staying over 30 minutes and they were gone. It might have been the heat why they left,it's very hot in the sandhills of N.C. but it was just as hot for the Asian players.
