Aren't you projecting yourself to suggest that she wants or needs any of those things (no spectators, no cameras, no cardmates, etc)? Bottom line is no one in this thread has the tiniest clue as to why Cat does what she does. If she prefers to keep herself to herself while competing, who is she harming?

And it's up to her sponsors to decide whether she is the representation they want or not. I guarantee they know her way better than we do.

Sure, their choice 100% . . . BUT, Prodigy pays her to "sell disc" and show of the brand. . but no in-the-bag for years, no social media , nothing

Ha! Projecting! Good one! Thatís the thing- Her performance is fine. Everybody chokes at times, or maybe Paige should just bag it too, since this week wasnít a great one?

All Iím saying is to try to have some compassion when dealing with people we donít understand. Maybe she just doesnít like anybody, and thatís fine too. Either way she can do what she wants, it isnít hurting anybody except apparently the guy keeping score, who still has 254 peopleís admiration to get him through the day.

Good one!

But actually I didn't even know about it until her female card mates told me about it each round. I don't think they approve.

Oh yeah...she should have at least confirmed her own score on the card before walking off, the rest is whatever.

Iím definitely not angry, just trying to figure out how to explain entitlement to you guys in a way you can actually absorb and understand.

Yes she is a brand ambassador, but that does not mean she has to be a super friendly person/social butterfly OR eschew what she feels she has to do in order to be ok today. We donít own her because she makes a living playing this sport, and watching her play doesnít entitle any of us to an explanation of her actions.

Your curiosity is understandable of course, but hey weíre having a discussion about it right? Certainly no harm in developing understanding- or trying for that matter.

Itīs just hard to figure her out. . it LOOKS like she dont like to be at the course. . but she plays more than anyone else so she must like it

And on the social thing. . she DO appears quite often in other players Vlogs hanging out with the other players
