10:54 AM ET 09.03 | LPGA commissioner Mike Whan likes the atmosphere nationalistic interest will bring to the Solheim Cup in three weeks, so he's working on bringing more of the same to his tour. Though Whan isn't ready to divulge any details, he confirms he's interested in creating a new event that would bring an Olympic-style aura to the LPGA schedule.

Well good luck with that. I used to love watching golf but now, not so much.

Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player, Tom Watson, Johnny Miller all charging up the 18th fairway, now that's golf. As for today. now that Tiger's gone, golf is dead dog boring!

It's always nice to come over to the golf threads every now and again just to read a good intellectual debate.

I've got a few ideas as to how make that tour work...but, I think I'll keep them to myself.

I think they labor under the illusion that golf fans have more disposable income. Their fail is that golf fans usually don't buy sports jerseys.

Nope, no disposable income in my house. My golf game however, is completely so.

Joni, these are posts from a previous thread from weeks ago and have no meaning here. Not sure what SI is doing really, they've lost control of the golf thread it would seem. Poop for brains??????? Now that hurt!

We should concentrate more on bringing an Olympic-style aura to gator wrestlin' instead of golf. I think there'd be more interest.
