Alexis Thompson is 17 and averages 276 on the LPGA.
The Michelle Wie farce put the whole thing back I think.
Agree 100% about Michelle Wie.
There is one other thing though: I have the feeling (people living in a cricketing country to confirm) that the best female golf players have much higher standards of training, even at junior levels, than best female cricket players. I always had the impression that women cricket is not taken seriously (ex. training 5 days a week) in test nations.
Without reaching the extremes of a Polgar education (in a sport where having women compete among themselves is really a nonsense), I think that there could be a massive room for improvement in the womens' game.
