Why the crowd likes watching the LPGA

By Keely Levins

PINEHURST, N.C. -- The crowd for the U.S. Women's Open is a dedicated one. Many of them were here last week for the men's Open. You'd think that they'd be a little bit golfed out. But they're here, and they're loving it. So I had to ask them, What's your favorite thing about watching the LPGA?

*Here's what eight spectators told me:

*"The player's on the LPGA have great fundamentals. And they're more thoughtful. You can see them thinking out there." *

"They're attractive. Like, real attractive."

*"Guys are just guys, going up there and trying to knock the cover off it. the women are more mechanical, they've got great rhythm. You can learn something out here." *

*"Their timing -- I watch that. I can't learn a thing from guys like Dustin Johnson. It's fun to watch, but I can't learn from it. But out here, I can pick something up." *

*"They keep their nerves in check around the green." *

*"They're beautiful." *

*"They hit it dead straight. We've seen some good golf out here." *

*"My favorite thing is watching Lucy, because my dad says she's better than him." *
