One of the founders of the LPGA (chick-golf), Louise Suggs died at the spry age of 91.

Suggs won, and I’m quoting Wikipedia here, a “veritable shitload” of tournaments when playing with the PGA.

When all was said and done, she had a career earning of… $200,000.  If that doesn’t seem like a lot, please keep in mind that she hit from the ladies tees.

Suggs was pissed off at the low amount that she made.  When Angela Park won the Rookie of the Year Award after earning

$983,922 on the tour, Suggs declared, “I wish like hell I could have played for this kind of money, but if not for me, they wouldn’t be playing for it, either.”

So, Suggs ended up content by smug.  Smug Suggs.

She also got annoyed with younger golfers, whom she considered spoiled: “They get mad now if they don’t have the right food in the locker room,” she said. “We were lucky if we got peanut butter and crackers. We paid to get things done.”

She also noted that in her day she had to walk through the snow for 15 miles on both the front and back nine.  She then went over to the 18th hole and yelled “get off the green!” at Rory McIlroy.

As the title gave away, this hit goes to Tailgating with Jesus!  Bean moves to the exact same place because this wasn’t exactly a Bobbi Kristina Brown-type hit.

Nancy Reagan, somehow, continues to live.

Happy pooling,
