With the addition of five new events this year—four in America—combined with the recent influx of young talent, has there ever been a better time to go out to an LPGA event? John Paul Newport of The Wall Street Journal doesn’t think so:

Compared with the PGA Tour, the players at LPGA events are much more accessible and the atmosphere more intimate.
On Thursday, when an errant drive by [Paula] Creamer hit a spectator, Creamer not only apologized but gave her the watch off her wrist, instead of the more customary signed glove.

Thompson got a special word of encouragement from the Golden Bear that she won’t soon forget after a couple of long drives.
“I heard him say, ‘wow,’” Thompson said. “That was pretty nice.”
“He said if I ever need any help, he’s a phone call away. It was so much fun. I would love to play with him again.”
“He can still hit it pretty good,” Thompson said. “He outdrove me on one hole.”
