We're talking literally an extra 2-3 minutes to the side of the 18th basket to check her card mates' scores. That's it.

She very well may have been seconds from a full meltdown, and had to get the hell out ASAP. She may have been really struggling the whole day/week/month. We don’t know.

Imagine it as a medical condition and not just someone being a jerk. If someone’s blood sugar was low and they needed to go get meds would you feel the same way?

Food for thought. I get what you’re saying, but I think you’re missing what is potentially far more important given the subject matter.

*sigh*

Cat has been playing at an elite level for longer than than most people have been paying attention, myself included.

Perhaps despite FPO competition causing huge amounts of anxiety at times, it’s the only thing in her life keeping her from a massive downward spiral. We will never know.

But yeah man, by all means take away her livelihood because she doesn’t act appreciative enough for your liking. That’ll teach her!

Honestly, whether she does or not is irrelevant. The only thing you need to know is that she doesn’t owe you a damn thing. Not a smile, not gracious appreciation, not an explanation of why she is the way she is- NOTHING.

To surmise otherwise is honestly really entitled. She isn’t your property and she can act however tf she wants, like it or not- I was simply offering a lesson in empathy- which apparently you guys are in desperate need of.

Perhaps because more cameras are on the course this year compared to all other years combined? If we want to watch without being there, cameras are going to get hit once in a while.

I’m not suggesting that, anyone take anything from her. But if, indeed, that is the case (personally, I doubt it, I think you’re projecting your own problems onto whatever Cats got going in her life), it looks like it’s limiting her ability to perform to a level that’s going to make it a sustainable career choice for her. So her options are either get through it, with therapy or whatever, or continue to choke like we saw at worlds. PDGA certainly isn’t going to tell people they can’t spectate or Jomez can’t film, or that it’s ok for her to play on a card by herself because she can’t handle the level of interpersonal communication that’s requisite of a top pro.

Cat threw a 1001-rated 4th round. How do you think that fit into her state of mind?
