Jim Achenbach tries to read into Tim Finchem's absence from the USGA Annual Meeting and it sounds like the LPGA's Mike Whan made up for any missed encounters with the PGA Tour head:
Meanwhile, Whan, the new LPGA leader, addressed the USGA behind closed doors.
“Lots of people, particularly the Women’s Committee, were very excited about this,” Rugge reported. “When he left, there was a noticable buzz in the room. He has a knack for inspiring people.”
As opposed to the normal buzzzzzzzzzz in those meetings?
