No Grace Under Fire

jamieintherough:

As I read through the (now deleted) tweets from Rolex Rankings #2 Stacy Lewis following her runner-up finish to Shanshan Feng at the Reignwood LPGA Classic, one picture immediately sprung to mind: The reaction of a then 17 year old Morgan Pressel, at the 2005 U.S. Women’s Open, after Birdie Kim miraculously holed out from a green side bunker to take the lead. The hands over the head, frustrated disbelief, and the overwhelming feeling that this championship was stolen from your fingertips. The spontaneous, graceless, and tactless reaction of a 17 year old amateur, Talented, and maybe petulant, but ultimately understandable. 

When you transfer that sudden emotional state from a teenage kid, to a a 28 year old woman, a former #1 ranked player in the world, the top ranked American for the past couple years, that feeling of understanding slips a bit. Or maybe a lot.

Btw what till you see the shot on 18 that won it! Lets just say it involved a rock and the flag stick…

This quote surmises everything. Shanshan didn’t deserve it. She hit a lucky shot. No one who has ever won any golf tournament anywhere has won by getting a lucky bounce, or getting in the way of the flagstick. Shanshan should be ashamed. How dare you steal this away from Stacy Lewis. Bad Asian. Stop ruining the tour. 

Sure. That shot was lucky. Even Shanshan thought she missed it, but just like Morgan at the 05 Open, Lewis had an opportunity to tie the lead. She failed. There was no mention of frustration of how she played an approach shot poorly under pressure, and missed a chance to make Feng’s putt a must make for the win. 

In the end Lewis has deleted her twitter account, with a equally mortifying tweet of defiance."For those whose (sic) were actually supportive on twitter, sorry to say I will be signing off of here. I’m sorry I say what I believe."

Speaking your mind is not to run away when you’re being criticized. If that’s how you feel, be proud of it. So, what if it reeks of petulance, and shows your mind at it’s most vapid. The deletion is not an apology, it’s not from a feeling of remorse. So, what’s the point? 

I’ve seen many tournaments Stacy (as well as Morgan) has competed in for the past 5+ years. They both act very immature when things don’t go their way. Cursing, hitting their clubs against the ground, crying on field, blaming others, the list goes on and on. It’s just sad that was many years ago - and now, Stacy being 28 years old, still has not handled herself very professionally on and off the field. She is a recent former world number one and has won many tournaments - what the hell does she have to complain about?!
Sometimes, you lose. Grow up.
