I’ve seen lots of LPGA golfers snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. I still feel for In-Kyung Kim lipping out a 1 footer to win the 2012 Kraft Nabisco Championship. It happens. You have to play all 72 holes (and sometimes more). I feel for the players but I watch. This one is different. Ariya Jutanugarn had a 2 shot lead going into the final hole of the 2013 Honda LPGA Thailand. After playing the first 71 holes at 14-under, she triple bogeyed the final hole to lose by 1 shot to Inbee Park. First of all, let me get this out of the way; congratulations to Inbee Park and full credit to her. She is a brilliant player and deserved the win because she was the best through all 72 holes. Ariya was the best through 71 holes. I have no sour grapes or bad feelings about Inbee. I love the Queen Bee and look forward to following her this year. That said, I cannot watch the final round of the tournament. Unlike the KNC, this tournament was broadcast on delay. Some people don’t like knowing the score of a delayed broadcast. I’m glad I did. Because I would have been a mess watching what unfolded on 18 live. Look, I didn’t expect Ariya to win the event when it started. And even going into the final round I knew there was a chance somebody could catch her and pass her. But what happened was the worst case scenario (other than being DQed) that I could imagine. What makes it so bad for me of course is that Ariya is Thai and the event was in Thailand. I am half-Thai and while I could take her not winning, to have it come down this way. Painful. Since I didn’t watch it or follow all of the action, this will be the extent of my blog post for this round and this tournament. I just wanted to give my thoughts on Ariya and also congratulate Inbee for her win. So no videos or lots of photos this time. It’s off to Singapore.
