Yani Tseng Might Tee it Up With the Boys
There is something in sports that I like to call "the next stepper." That's when you know you're so good that people are already asking you about the next step. Andrew Luck is dealing with it right now. LeBron James had it for years as a teenager before the NBA. And now, Yani Tseng is getting it.
Tseng has won approximately 46 LPGA events this season, and has brought up the discussion about her plans to maybe, possibly, tee it up with the men next season, and Yani said it is something she's thought about.
Via the Taiwan News Channel ...
"If an opportunity presents itself, I would like to play in a PGA tournament to learn more from male golfers," the Taiwanese star said.
I mean, why wouldn't she do this? She hits it long. She's playing great golf. And if nothing else, it gives her great exposure and would lead a few of the big sports talk shows. Also, if I had to put money on her making or missing the cut, I really think I'd go with her making it to the weekend. The problem is, as we've seen, LPGA stars have a shelf life, and I hope that she decides to do this before her game falls off.
Play at the Colonial, make the cut, and show the world just what kind of talent the LPGA Tour has right now.
I'd definitely tune in.
