Watching last year’s Insperity Greats of Golf this year, I was struck with how accurate these remarkable players still are. I was most impressed with Nicklaus, Player, Trevino, and Sorenstam.

Powerful, classic, one-piece swings that, as a group, remind me of Justin Rose: methodical, workmanlike, efficient. Like any tour, some of these women have more game than others. […]
