I had the opportunity to attendthe recent women’s golf champi-onship at Blackwolf Run on behalf of The Kohler Villager. Having alsoattended in 1998, I was looking for-ward to this year’s tournament, andI was not disappointed. Thegrounds were beautiful, the fanswere friendly and respectful, andthe players, especially the winner,South Korean Na Yeon Choi, dis- played skill and an appreciation fothe opportunity to play for thechampionship in Kohler.The hot weather, of course,dominated conversations the firsttwo days of the tournament. I heardthe word “brutal” more than oncefrom fans and reporters, but the players, for the most part, seemedto take it in stride.“If you drink, don't drive. Don'teven putt,” Dean Martin once joked. Plenty of drinking occurredduring play, but it wasn’t the kindMartin was referring to. LexiThompson, the 17-year-old Ameri-can prodigy whose average drivingdistance is the same as men’s worldnumber one Luke Donald (274yards), said she drank at least one bottle of water per hole, and other  players echoed her. But Thompsonwas quick to add that she was fromsouth Florida, was used to the heat,and played every day, no matter how hot. German golfer SandraGal, who finished third, added,“You know, I think we got a little preview last week in Arkansas. Itwas pretty similar, so I knew howto prepare and what to do out there.Obviously, it was quite draining, but if you keep hydrated it’s fine.”
Observations fromthe 2012 U.S.Women’s Open
Continued on page 2
By the end of the tournament itwasn’t the heat that caused themost trouble for the players—itwas the course itself. Scores soaredon Saturday and Sunday, with onlytwo players finishing the tourna-ment under par. Lee Trevino onceremarked, “Columbus went aroundthe world in 1492. That isn't a lotof strokes when you consider thecourse.” Columbus would’ve hadhis work cut out for him at Black-wolf Run.Poor Michelle Wie began theweekend in second place, four under par and full of hope. Shefaded quickly, however, ending thetournament tied for 35th place, tenshots over par. South Korean JiminKang described the challenges of the course well when she said,“Every single shot, every singlehole I gotta like pay attention everysingle shot, because there’s no shotyou can take, awe, just let me graba driver and rip it and see what hap- pens. No. No. No.”Speaking of Wie, there was a buzz among the fans early Saturday prior to her appearance. A headlinegrabber since she burst onto thescene as a 13-year-old, the slender six-foot-one-inch tall player fromHawaii always attracts attention.“That’s what I want to see,” saidone fan walking toward the firsttee, “how tall she is.” By SundayWie hadn’t lost any of her height, but the buzz was gone anyway, asshe had fallen well off the leader  board.Wie wasn’t the only one whohad problems. After a wayward teeshot on 11, I overheard 2007 Openchamp Cristie Kerr’s frustration boil over as she barked, “Dang it!What are you doing?!” (I hadn’t been doing anything—just watch-ing, honest.) Some players though,
US. Women’s Open winner Na Yeon Choi.

WisDOT detailsHighway 23 andCounty Road Y project
 By Kevin Struck 
Staff from the Wisconsin De- partment of Transportation’s Northeast Region hosted an infor-mation meeting at the Kohler Vil-lage Hall on June 26 to providedetails about road work that willclose parts of the State Highway23 and County Road Y inter-change for several months in early2014. Comments from the publicwere also solicited. The improve-ments are being proposed to im- prove driver safety, as well as pavement and structure conditions.Although the time line couldchange, work is slated to begin inMarch of 2014 and take four months, according to WisDOT project manager Paul Brauer.Under the current plan, the twooff-ramps will be shut down andworked on for two months, andthen the same procedure will befollowed for the two on-ramps. Atleast one lane in each direction onCounty Road Y and Highway 23will remain open during both shutdowns. Access to nearby proper-ties will be maintained during theroad work. WisDOT hopes to keepthe Old Plank Road Trail open asa paved surface where it crossesCounty Road Y. However, for short periods when a paved sur-face becomes too difficult to ac-commodate, the trail will at least be accessible as a gravel surface.WisDOT intends to replace thedeteriorating pavement on all four of the interchange ramps and willreplace the pavement on CountyRoad Y from 120 feet south of theOld Plank Road Trail to 300 feetnorth of the westbound Highway23 ramp terminal intersection. The project includes a bridge deck overlay and repainting of the steelon the County Road Y structureover Highway 23.There will be two designchanges as well: 1) the free flowlane merging southbound ontoCounty Road Y from the west- bound Highway 23 off-ramp will be reconstructed as a standard in-tersection approach to improvedriver vision and safety, and 2) anexclusive right turn lane will beadded from northbound CountyRoad Y to the Highway 23 west- bound on-ramp.The improvements resultingfrom the reconstruction and recon-ditioning are expected to last about20 years.
U.S. Women’s Open,
took what little consolation theycould. Although she was a dismal10 over for the day, amateur Emma Talley smiled broadly and patted her caddy on the back after she birdied the 12th hole.After the tournament was over,I had time to reflect on the differ-ences between the 1998 and 2012events. One obvious differencewas the impact of technology. In1998 none of the players had Face- book pages and no one was tweet-ing updates from the course. Infact, your cell phone—if you hadone—had to stay in the car in1998. This year, in a first for theUSGA, cell phones were allowedif they were kept on vibrate.Members of the media couldleave their pencils behind their ears at this year’s tournament, be-cause a large number of interviewswere transcribed and emailed di-rectly to their inboxes. That wouldhave been an unknown luxury in1998.Halfway through the tourna-ment my uncle in Florida textedme that he was watching on televi-sion and the course looked beauti-ful. I’m sure the course was beautiful in 1998 too, but I doubtwhether my uncle was watchingthe tournament on a large HD TVlike he was this year.Oddly enough, the leaderboardsscattered throughout the courseseemed to be the one componentthat had avoided technology’s in-fluence. It was almost humorous tosee the volunteer marshals scram- bling by hand for the right numbersand letters to manually keep the boards up to date.Another difference, post 9/11,was, unfortunately, the emphasisthat had to be placed on security.There were no major incidents,however, so law enforcement offi-cials are to be commended for their efforts.Finally, anyone could see therewas a difference in the players.Today’s players are younger, in better shape, and more diverse intheir origins. Se Ri Pak’s victory in1998 inspired an entire generationof Asian players, including 2012champion Na Yeon Choi, whowatched the 1998 event on televi-sion as a nine-year-old and madeup her mind she was going to be agolfer. Looks like that decisionworked out pretty well for her.
