Christina Kim Makes LPGA Fun
By Kickntrue on 6/12/09
If you can find time to sneak in some LPGA action today on Golf Channel, I promise you it's worth it. LPGA funny-girl, Christina Kim agreed to be mic'd up for the round yesterday, and it was such a success she agreed to do it again. She's funny enough by herself, but paired with Michelle Wie, it's even better. Wie served as Kim's punching bag all day yesterday at Bulle Rock while both shot solid rounds of -2 to start the LPGA Championship.

She called Wie "gangly" and "Giraffe" while Wie did nothing but smile without a good comeback. After the round we learned that Wie watches the Orlando Magic just to see Dwight Howard warm up without a shirt on and that Wie and Kim are indeed buddies. It was fun to not only see Wie loosened up but to see what some on-course action is really like. Through the jokes, was plenty of serious golf action.

They tee of a little after 1pm EST today and you can catch them on Golf Channel until 3:30.

Maybe not worth a full post- but check out this story of golfer Ahn Shi-hyun who this morning hit a robin on a tee shot, "killing the unfortunate bird in a puff of feathers." deadspin.com/5288539/its-been-a-rough-week-for-t

Christina Kim was a BLAST to listen to. I wish they would mic more players. I love hearing the interaction between players and player and caddie. A couple of swear words won't kill anyone.

This may be the hook the LPGA needs to get some fans. I was amused by the comments after she chipped the ball in. And then to hear her complaining of the sore hip from the celebration. It was fun.

She needs to lose the stupid hat. I think Jesper Parnevic finally got the message that he looked like Gomer Pyle with the turned up bill on his hat.

C.Kim sucks! She is an embarrassment to womens golf. My brother & I don't like her. The other day, I was watching th McDonald's cup (women) and she said "dumbass" on the open mic. She is loud, obnoxious, and an overall embarrassment to the terrific sport.

I guess you want stuffy jerks with no personality. That makes for great ratings. The LPGA NEEDS a draw. It needs a personality to get people to watch and pay. She is like a toned down Happy Gilmore type.
An embarrassment to women's golf is someone like Michelle Wie, who tries to be something she's not. Glad to see she's become a woman golfer.

actually, i forgot women's golf get so few viewers, so I guess your right, Kidputter. The LPGA does indeed need Kim to boost ratings and entertainment value.
I still don't like her that much, but she does make people tune in.
