PRESSURE SYSTEM: YAHOO SPORTS’ Brian Murphy wrote of adverse weather affecting multiple PGA Tour events this season, “Enough with the weather on the PGA Tour. It’s damn near apocalyptic.” The whole scene at this past weekend's Zurich Classic of New Orleans “felt that way, with the gators at TPC Louisiana reportedly crawling around the golf course, and play halted one day for a swarm of bees on the course.” It is like “they were filming the sequel” to “Beasts Of The Southern Wild” (SPORTS.YAHOO.com, 4/28).
FIRST THINGS FIRST: In Dallas, Bill Nichols writes the North Texas LPGA Shootout this past weekend “had almost everything a first-year event could hope for: Large crowds, a field that included nine of the top 10 players in the Rolex Rankings and an exciting finish.” Inbee Park, who won the event, said, “I didn’t expect that much of a gallery this week.” The event marked the LPGA’s “first Dallas-Fort Worth appearance since the 1991 U.S. Women’s Open at Colonial Country Club.” Tournament officials “estimated the attendance at 76,000 for the four rounds.” Weekend figures were “about 36,000 for Saturday and 30,000 for Sunday” (DALLAS MORNING NEWS, 4/29).
