Hard to believe it’s the final LPGA major already! And while the LPGA has always struggled for media coverage outside of The Golf Channel, it seems like the absense of Annika Sorenstam after her retirement has put the Tour into an even darker shadow this year.
But if you’re a true fan, there are lots of ways to stay in touch with ladies online! Here’s my (incomplete) list, be sure to add your favorites that I missed in the comments below:
* LPGA.com – straight from the source, this site has it all: news & stats, player biographies, an event calendar, and even some instruction & advice, including a cool “what’s in the bag?” feature for recent LPGA Tour winners. This is a no-brainer bookmark for any ladies golf fan.
* Twitter – even more than their male counterparts, the ladies of the LPGA have taken to Twitter! Most of the big names and more than a few up-and-comers are here, posting regular updates. Here’s a few you may want to follow:
- Annika Sorenstam – @annika59
- Michelle Wie – @TheMichelleWie
- Natalie Gulbis – @Natalie_Gulbis
- Paula Creamer – @ThePaulaCreamer
- Christina Kim – @TheChristinaKim
- Karen Stupples – @KStupples
- Angela Stanford – @Angela_Stanford
- Anna Rawson – @TheAnnaRawson
- Morgan Pressel – @MorganPressel
- Suzann Pettersen – @SuzannPettersen
- Johanna Mundy – @JohannaMundy
- Kristy McPherson – @Kristy2208.html
- Michelle McGann – @MichelleMcGann
- Stacy Lewis – @Stacy_Lewis
Of course, if you’re on Twitter, you’ll want to follow me, Scratch – @RockBottomGolf
* ESPN – although their golf coverage is often dominated by Tiger and the rest of the guys, there’s still some insights to be had here. Make sure you take advantage of the site’s “My Headlines” feature to customize what headlines show up when you visit.
Again, this is just a short list of my favorite resources…what sites do YOU use to stay up-to-date with the LPGA?
PS: This Caveman’s takin’ requests! What ladies golf gear would you like to see show up in the Cave? Let me know in the comments below and I’ll get to work right away!
