Whether you are a fan of women's golf or not it has to be one of the greatest celebrations seen in professional sport anywhere in the world.

I'm delighted that the BBC are spending the Licence fee covering and promoting Women's sport to the level it so richly deserves.

Let's be honest, they aren't spending that much, otherwise it would be on Sky.

So the recent WGC. Anything learnt for the Ryder Cup?

The old boys Westwood, Poulter, Garcia still have it in them it would seem.

The new boys Perez and Macintyre seem to have the guts for the fight.

Hovland...question marks remain, particularly when the crowds are out. Has he the minerals at present?

Hovland did himself no favours but I expect Poulter and Garcia showed enough to suggest they are still worthy of a call up.
Perez will probably qualify automatically but his run will have done his chances of a wild card no harm if required.
MacIntyre, though. 1 win out of 4 isn't much and shows nothing to suggest he'd be any use at all. I doubt Harrington has even given him a second thought.

Westwood will qualify by right (as will Perez and Hovland), Garcia currently next of those not automatic on world points then, Wiesberger, MacIntyre & Willet, neither of whom inspire me.

Does 'Mr Ryder Cup' have another one in him or take him as a VC.

Assuming you take Garcia, Poults is nowhere on the list, so going to nark someone, as ever, if you take him.

Hogland should be nowhere near the Ryder Cup. Matchplay is totally different to stroke play and Victoria showed he simply does not have what is required.

We'll have to agree to disagree. He knocked out the World No.1, DJ, in the group stages and showed he has the minerals with the shot of the tournament to birdie the last and progress to the knockout stages when the pressure was on him. That showed the necessary 'bottle' in my book.

Have to say MacIntyre didn't impress me at all, he scraped through the group more because DJ played poorly by his standards, then Perez beat him with ease. He needs to pick it up, if he is to stand any chance of making the RC team, he's in The Masters, let's see what he can do there, but I'll be putting money on a misses cut I'm afraid.

First, women's golf is great to watch, and more relatable for me as an average amateur.

For me, making the Players a major complicates the perspective. Either we'll have the like of "Jack who won 18 majors, *back when there were only 4*..", or you have to retrospectively call past winners major champions when perhaps in the past the fields weren't as strong. Either way, it's messy.

Looking forward to the tournament and think a lot of the top players are regularly competing at the top currently.

Nice to read the history, I can understand glamour to play the big venues including Augusta but it would be a shame if that comes at the cost of tournaments that have stood behind the women's game for years.

Really good to have a HYS on women's golf. Why no hys at all on the WGC matchplay though?......

Whether you are a fan of women's golf or not it has to be one of the greatest celebrations seen in professional sport anywhere in the world.
Praying one of the Korda sisters wins and is wearing a white shirt on Sunday.

Hoping that one of the Korda sisters is up there come Sunday. They both stroke it so well, so firm.. so fast but with such a lovely grip. Neither seem to choke on it which is a big positive as well. Removed

Hovland did himself no favours but I expect Poulter and Garcia showed enough to suggest they are still worthy of a call up.
Perez will probably qualify automatically but his run will have done his chances of a wild card no harm if required.
MacIntyre, though. 1 win out of 4 isn't much and shows nothing to suggest he'd be any use at all. I doubt Harrington has even given him a second thought.

Have to say MacIntyre didn't impress me at all, he scraped through the group more because DJ played poorly by his standards, then Perez beat him with ease. He needs to pick it up, if he is to stand any chance of making the RC team, he's in The Masters, let's see what he can do there, but I'll be putting money on a misses cut I'm afraid.

Perez was 7 under for 11 holes ,playing like that he would have beaten virtually every player.He was sinking long putts from everywhere.It wasn't as if MacIntyre was giving the holes away. I think he did very well to win a group with the world No1 in it.

Really good to have a HYS on women's golf. Why no hys at all on the WGC matchplay though?...... Do we only have golf hys when McIlroy is in contention ?if so it could be a long time until the next one - although i suppose it could be argued finding a swimming pool off the tee took some really precise ball striking.

Well it's taken a story about the ANA 50th Anniversary for the BBC to mention anything about the Kia Classic where Mel Reid was lying 2nd until the final round yet Rory, Lee or even Tiger can be 6 shots off the lead and get a whole story line to themselves about how they are in contention.

Sincerely hope they have learned from last year's event when it was won by a player chose to knock the ball through the green into the fake stand and get relief, rather than her being in the water thru the green and having a penalty drop. Good event, looking forward to it!
