National spotlight on local golfer Jodi Ewart Shadoff

The appearance near the top of the Kraft Nabisco Championship leader board of Jodi Ewart Shadoff, a nonwinner on the L.P.G.A. Tour, came as no surprise to the sports anchor where she lives in Sarasota. He pointed out that Ewart Shadoff ranked second on the tour in greens in regulation and was in the top 25 in driving accuracy.

Yes, Adam Shadoff, the anchor, does his homework on local athletes, especially his wife, who was tied for fifth after a 36-hole score of four-under-par 140, three strokes behind the leader Inbee Park, who carded a 67. The couple, who were married in January, met in Albuquerque, N.M., in 2008 when Ewart Shadoff was a sophomore standout on the University of New Mexico women's golf team and Shadoff was the reporter at the local CBS affiliate assigned to interview her after her victory in the Mountain West Championship.

Ewart Shadoff riding anchored putter at Kraft

RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. – Jodi Ewart Shadoff would love to add her name to the recent major championship winners who anchor their putters.

Ewart Shadoff shot an even-par 72 Friday at the Kraft Nabisco, good for a tie for the lead at 4-under 140 when the morning wave finished. She took up a belly putter late in 2011 just a month before going to LPGA Q-School.

Three of the last five major championship winners in men’s golf have anchored their putters. Sherri Steinhauer is the only woman who has won a major anchoring. She won the Women’s British Open in 2006 with a long putter.

“All you have to do is look at my putting stats to know it’s not a huge advantage,” Ewart Shadoff said. “To be honest, if they do decide to ban it, it wouldn’t be a huge deal.” More>>
