JM: That’s a good question. I think I get the feeling that, you know, in an era of, you know, kind of bomb-and-gouge play a little bit on the men’s game, they’re not quite as interested in coming out of their shoes and just advancing the ball as far as they possibly can. There’s a little bit more strategy involved.

I get asked all the time, who’s got the best swing in golf? And I think the answer is Nelly Korda. I say that all the time, and people go, well you know, Adam Scott and all these amazing swings on the PGA Tour. Certainly Celine today, my goodness gracious, I mean, she hit it exactly where she was looking. And I it almost seems to me that a big part of the women’s game is just being patient because they’re giving themselves so many looks, you know what I mean? 

That I would think that you almost have to tell yourself OK, I’m not going to make every 15-footer I stand over and if I missed two or three in a row, I’m going to have to kind of you know, come to grips with that because my gosh, I might have 14 15-footers this round. They’re just so talented from a ball-striking standpoint.
