It’s hard to bet against her, the way that she has brought herself back to the top of the game. Her form at CME, to do it in the fashion that she did, being ahead and she kept the gas pedal down. It was a hard week certainly, there was weather, but she never looked flustered, never looked bothered and just continued to plug along.
Of course, for Lydia and most players who get to No. 1 in the world, it’s the intangibles. It’s the thing that you can’t see, and I feel like she has that back in the way that she had when she was so dominant.
Nobody is ever on top of the world forever, it’s just too hard, there’s too much competition. In any sport there are fluctuations. She has rebuilt her game in a sense, maybe even more mentally than anything else. Obviously she’s happy off the golf course. We saw her beautiful wedding a couple weeks ago. She’s in a different place in her life, and I think that’s showing on the golf course as well.
