Give The Gift Of Golf: United States Women’s Open

Paula Creamer, 2010 US Women's Open Champion

A promotional video from the 2011 USWO. Nicely done. But I do have one gripe. I know it’s the US Open…as in United States of America…but considering the field is made up mostly of LPGA players (I realize non-LPGA players get in, too…but the majority will be LPGA players), the fact that there are no Koreans like former US Open champions Se Ri Pak and Inbee Park, no Taiwanese like reigning LPGA Player of the Year Yani Tseng or 5-time LPGA winner in 2010 Japanese Ai Miyazato…Michelle Wie is Korean-American…is curious, to say the least…but ok, promoting the American players to sell the gift package, I get it…but even the video shows a clip of Suzann Pettersen…last time I checked, she’s not American, either…but maybe she fits their…parameters…better…to be fair, the promotional video also did not include former US Open Champion, the best American player on tour, Cristie Kerr, either…but you know, I like all the players they showed, but I’d have been more inclined to buy a package had there been a shot of some of the other players I mentioned…
