Keeping Score

From the Morning Read inbox

Follow the Langer blueprint
I liken Brittany Lincicome’s competing in this week’s Barbasol Championship on the PGA Tour with that of Bernhard Langer at the Masters (“Pioneering woman takes on PGA Tour,” July 18). Not the longest hitter, by far, but Langer still is competitive.

Lincicome could be this week's Langer. Hit it far enough off the tee, keep out of trouble, putt well and see what happens.

It would be magic if she were to make the cut and show up on the leaderboard.

Homecoming week for senior women
The U.S. Senior Women’s Open was a bust (“Just like old times at Senior Women’s Open,” July 13). I called the winner weeks before they teed off (“Keeping score,” July 16). It was no contest.

Maybe next year the participants actually will prepare for a national title instead of celebrating homecoming week.
