Taking a “Major” Leap Into Poppie’s Pond

by Jeff Skinner

Golf’s major season starts tomorrow as the ladies of the LPGA tee it up at the Kraft Nabisco Championship.  Jim Nantz likes to use the tag line “A tradition like no other” when he refers to The Masters and he is right.  But The Masters doesn’t have a monopoly on tradition.

The Kraft features one of the most entertaining traditions in sport with the winner leaping into Poppies Pond.  It’s exciting and fun and sometimes dangerous.  When 2011 champion Stacy Lewis and her family and friends made the leap last year her mom broke her leg. But she didn’t mind a bit.  Watching your daughter win a major will ease a lot of pain.
