It was another really good golf tournament at the Kraft Nabisco in Rancho Mirage. We weren’t in town to watch it but we followed it intently on television. Both Lexi and Michelle played exceptional golf.
From Thursday on, we watched Lydia Ko, Yani Tseng and Michelle Wie play their best. We even saw Angel Yin a few times when she played like a pro. It was as though we knew her.
Last year, we met Angel’s father while in line when we were all waiting for the bus. When you attend the Kraft Nabisco, you can’t just drive up to the golf course and park unless you are a VIP, media or someone affiliated with the LPGA.
You park your car at south end of the Aqua Caliente parking lot and shuttles take you to the Mission Hills Country Club. Throughout the day, there are shuttles that pick you up from the golf course and take you back to the parking lot.
For a moment there, Angel was right up there on the Leaderboard. Something happened to her game because she ended up last, alone at 73rd position. Better luck next year Angel. We will be watching for you!
