Andrew: bad1
Annika: good2

1I paid too much to hit some balls at the range at Chelsea Piers. Out of 100-odd, I had maybe 5 good swings.3

2I'm amazed at the level of fuss about Annika playing the PGA invitational at the Colonial this week. Yes, it will be interesting to see how the best pro female golfer plays competing with some of the top PGA pros. But this won't lead to a wave of women going to Q-school or anything. Annika has been about as dominant on the LPGA as Tiger, Phil and Ernie have been combined on the PGA. None of the other female competitors consistently play at her level, and it will be very interesting to see how Sorenstam stacks up against the PGA. But that's all this represents. It's just golf, nothing more.

3Yes, I got addicted to using explanatory footnotes while writing the writing competition note. This will pass... now.
