The Next One - Ryo Ishikawa

Woohoo for pink shirts! He's cute! :)

IT WASN’T quite the “Bashful Prince” of Bel-Air. But Ryo Ishikawa’s charming and chaotic opening press conference at the Northern Trust Open was easily the highlight of the build-up to a €5 million tournament that features 30 of the world’s top-50.

Two of the leading men, defending champion Phil Mickelson and another three-time major winner, Pádraig Harrington, are going through the horrors with their games and are undoubtedly grateful to avoid the glare of the spotlight.

Ishikawa appeared to be meditating as more than 100 media types, mainly Japanese photographers and TV camermen, jostled for position before the 17-year-old sensation addressed the great American public for the first time.

He's gotten off to a rough start this morning though +3 after 8 holes. He's going to find it difficult in the US on these insane courses but I hope he can get a PGA tour card in a few years and play regularly! I'll be following him very closely (drool) :P
