She can win any place that you put her. And then the thing aboutInbee is she doesn't feel like a dominant player, she doesn't overwhelm golf courses , she can't bring a golf course to its knees. But she does three things really well. She keeps her golf ball out of trouble, she keeps her composure, and she makes putts. She's a great example to all the recreational golfers out there about what the important part of this game is. Keep your ball in the short grass and get your ball in the whole quickly. She doesn't feel like an overwhelming player but I have to say, she's number one. Two horse race in your mind? Well, you wouldn't think so because neither Seung Kim nor Inbee gives strokes back.

The course could get out of control. I played here six weeks ago. It's a very different golf course now than it was six weeks ago. It's browner. It's firmer. It's faster. It's much more playing the way that they want to do it. I think Davis hasn't gotten it wrong yet. I think this is his tenth open set up that he's done and he hasn't gotten it wrong yet, but this is gonna be his biggest challenge. He's gotta make sure the golf course doesn't get away from him.
