ANA Inspiration rules fiasco haunts Thompson

ANA Inspiration rules fiasco haunts Thompson

Thompson's rules violation at the Missions Hills Country Club past year cost her four strokes and saw her confined to a play-off, which she eventually lost.

Uehara, winless anywhere in seven years, began her day with a three-putt bogey on No. 10 but kick-started her round with a birdie on No 18, the first of three in a row. For sure when things are going great, it seems like you're unstoppable and you can win every week or you can finish top 10 every week. I was screaming, crying. You know, I've re-lived it for a while. She has already admitted this wee that it was an "extremely rough" experience and that she occasionally still has nightmares about it. "I'm just happy the rule changed so nobody else can be put through what I was put through previous year".

Thompson, who was leading by two strokes at the time, suddenly found herself two off the lead.

Witters had the task of intercepting Thompson on her way to the 13th tee and informing her that she was being penalized two shots for violating Rule 20-7c for incorrectly marking her ball on the 17th green during Saturday's third round.

Wie, victor of the LPGA Singapore event early this month, joked that her blurred vision had given her a choice of five balls to hit from the rough at one hole on the front nine.

The player to beat, though, could well be Inbee Park, despite her recent struggles with injury.

"I had to dig really deep", admitted Thompson of her immediate reaction to being told of the penalty.

"I was admiring the shot, and I didn't imagine seeing it disappear". But the fans were the only reason why I finished the way I did. "I get to wake up pain free every day and that's awesome to me". "I heard them on the green chanting my name, and I was like, "I have to finish strong for them".

"I got off to a good start", said Uehara, who finished with eight birdies. "I feel very comfortable with it, and this golf course definitely sets up for my game off the tee". "I'm a happier person now that I wake up with no headaches. Overall, I played well today and I just need to keep it up the next three days".

Thompson's trial by TV evidence was the final straw for the R&A and USGA following a string of incidents being called in by viewers.

Thompson has a fantastic record on the Dinah Shore Tournament Course.

"I started off solid and ended even better", said Lindberg, who has never won in nine seasons on the LPGA Tour.

Whelan first started working with Jessica after she missed the cut at the U.S. Open at Lancaster (Pa.) Country Club three years ago.

The women's ANA Inspiration and the men's Masters are the only two majors played on the same course each year.

"I didn't realise how much it affected me until I got the surgery done", said Korda, who won the Honda LPGA Thailand in February. "And then just seeing what his club-head speed is right now and everything, seeing how he's hitting the ball and how he was coming back, it's truly inspiring and motivating".

Playing under the shadow of last year's four-stroke penalty, which knocked her into a playoff she lost to So Yeon Ryu, Thompson shouldered the burden with the same emotional strength as the physical strength that allowed her to hit a drive on No. 3 that flirted with 350 yards.
