Rory McIlroy wins his first major at 22 and goes on the cover of Sports Illustrated. Yani Tseng wins her fourth major at 22 and remains as anonymous as a doorstop.
McIlroy wins the U.S. Open by eight shots and the golf fans sit mesmerized, marveling at his show of force. Tseng lambastes the Wegmans LPGA Championship field by 10 and golf fans change the channel, bemoaning the lack of drama (if, that is, they bothered to tune in at all).
Right now there's no better golfer on the planet than Tseng relative to the competition. In fact, there's no more dominant female athlete in the world no matter what the sport. A win at the U.S. Women's Open in Colorado next month would give her ... the career grand slam.
The career slam? Annika Sorenstam won her first major at 24. What does Tseng do when there's no more room on her belt for the notches? Take up tennis?
