  1. Thanks, this week, to So Yeon Ryu
  2. It's nice that she installed a bubble over the football stadium and renovated the gym, but does she have any background in business, technology and attracting sponsorships? These seem to be the LPGA's greatest needs. I'm always a little leery of people moving from academia into the business world. It can be quite a challenge going from the ivory tower to the real world. I wish her the best.
  3. Apparantly Beth Ann is the new commissioner, since the LPGA staff is already following her orders to shorten the course by hundreds of yards But why stop there? Why not place the tee boxes mid-fairway? That would add record-breaking excitement! And mix it up on the greens by placing windmills and clown's mouths in front of the holes!
  4. Hyo Joo Kim has made a mockery of this supposed contest. She would have been my first pick if the ridiculous rules allowed it.
  5. It's bittersweet. The Perfect Woman (according to JTBC Golf magazine) pushed Malaysia's Golf Darling (according to ParGolf magazine) out of the field. KT is now sitting at 145 in a 144-person field.
  6. Since no one went the all-Seoul Sisters route, I'll throw in. If these gals all play a relatively full schedule, they're unbeatable. JYK SYK SYR 6 A Lim This competition is flawed by basing it on the LPGA money list, thereby making 2020's KLPGA scoring average/money list winner Hyo Joo Kim ineligible.
  7. > @ChronicSlicer said: > Strange Carlota is sitting this one out, she plays very well here. I don't want to follow @Argonne69 and go with Jin Young (actually I do) but I won't, so Amy Yang it is. Megan Khang, Wei-Ling Hsu and Minjee will be on the prowl as well. My sleeper but not so much a sleeper is Hannah Green, 3 wins would be spectacular for her. It may be strategic. Carlota is currently leading the AON Risk/Reward Challenge and -- with a $1 million prize on the line -- she doesn't want to risk having a bad hole and losing out on the huge payday. I'm not sure if Ariya is still i

Without an explanation?! The least the moderators could do is pay the respect to the members of explaining why. And that would be interesting, because the comments are pretty much respectful and stay on topic. I can live without the fashion thread but my wife, who barely breaks 100 at mini-golf (putt-putt, whatever), loves wearing golf att

She's often predicted as the winner, too. What the heck is going on here people? Jennifer Song turns thirty this year, has been on tour for nine years, has zero wins and a whopping seven career top tens. I have totally missed the jo

Ease up on Beth Ann. She's just doing a favor for a friend.

  13. > @18majors said: > Interesting to see Kristen Gillman is in another featured pairing with Sung Hyun Park and Morgan Pressel! > I'm a big fan of Kristen; but have to admit that she wouldn't have received such a preferential treatment with her records if she were a Korean. The real question is how did Terminator -- a recent World #1 -- get stuck in a grouping with these two? Kristen has proven she's competent but hasn't otherwise distinguished herself yet. Pressel has won exactly twice on the LPGA...the last time in 2007.
  14. > @"Raving Shanker" said: > I got up this morning (Aussie time) to check progress in this event to find it has not yet begun - it is a 54-hole event! What's with 54-hole events? Is there any rationale behind this? The only effect i can see is that it randomises the outcome to some extent. And I can't see that as being good. Welcome to the Supermarket Swing on the LPGA. The ShopRite this week, the Meijer next week, and the Walmart beginning 6/28 (another 3-day event).
  15. > @Argonne69 said: > Perhaps the European team should be expanded to include the Commonwealth of Nations, which includes Canada, Australia, New Zealand. They'd pick up Brooke, Minjee, and Lydia, making it a little more of a fair fight. > Great idea, Arg! Actually, those 3 countries would be good enough to be a team of their own. That would make 3 teams (with Europe & the US). And since we're doing that, we should probably add Korea and Japan, they're both top shelf! That would make it 5 teams. It wouldn't be fair to leave out Taiwan and China , so that would get it up to 7. T
