From the Rough

Golf without discretion

Anna Rawson’s looks won’t help her golf game

with one comment


OK, we’ve all seen the Anna Rawson piece on E:60 and have Googled ogled her numerous times when she’s passed by on the television. I’ll admit she’s got the looks to earn the LPGA some big bucks in the future. Shoot, she’s already earning a better living off the course modeling for various designers.

But if there’s one things that’s missing from that gorgeous face, it’s a solid golf game. During the E:60 interview, the LPGA’s VP of communications, David Higdon, was asked what Rawson needed to do to become the face of the LPGA. Higdon held his hands above his head like he was holding a trophy. Just like Anna Kournikova when she was playing on the WTA, Rawson needs to find a way to get inside the top 50 world rankings and win a tournament or two – at least.

She definitely didn’t go in the right directions this weekend at the Women’s British Open, shooting an opening round 82 to fall completely off the map. She followed that up with a 5-over 77 to finish at 15-over for the tournament. That just won’t do for the future face of the LPGA.
Rawson has the body and the ideas to help the tour grow. But until she finds a way to get her game going in the right direction, I can promise you nobody will take her (or her ideas) seriously.

  1. Totally agree with you here. I broke down her ideas on my blog…..

    But quite frankly, though she may have the talent, you’re exactly right that no one is going to listen to her if she keeps shooting in the 80s.

    So she can say all she wants to about and talk about what the LPGA is lacking, it’s just that no one is going to care until she starts winning tournaments.

    Really enjoy your blog!
