  1. Good for her to take the responsibility and make the changes she needed for her health.
  2. Suzuki and Shibuno tied, 2 shots off the lead and paired together for the final round in the jlpga event this weekend.
  3. It's on the LPGA Facebook page. My apologies, I'm not seeing a way to provide a direct video link.
  4. Altomare hangs on to get the victory from Sei Young Kim. Su Oh threatens with a strong finish to the end of the season. I had lost about 1/18th of an ounce of respect for Carlota Ciganda for not playing out the Asian Swing to win the AON risk reward, but she got it back after that tear jerker press conference. As had been said and repeated, this course suites Lexi, the Kordas and Ariya well. Lexi didn't impress in Japan. Swing changes and always a questionable putter, I'll pass this season. Nelly does an Amy Yang thing for a little while longer and doesn't win on US soil. I'll save additional

  7. From reviewing the Rolex Rankings, a win in most events on JLPGA is equivalent to between a 2nd and 3rd place finish, about 20 points, in most non-major events on the LPGA tour. I think the Japanese Olympic Golf Coach, the JLPGA and whatever governing bodies(golf/and Olympic) they have Japan need to get with the camps of Suzuki, Hataoka and Shibuno (if they haven't already) and provide them whatever assistance they need to try and get all three of them into the top 15 Rolex Rankiings. They can include Yui Kawamoto, Mamiko Higa, Momoko Ueda (and anyone else that might be able to win a major)

Why not take a shot at ANWA and go on all the press-junkets Fassi did and impr
  11. I'm hoping Ai Suzuki's result last year at Toto was due to an off week and not a course that doesn't suit her. She wins this week in a playoff with Hinako Shibuno. This results helps them both. Ai needs to climb into the top 15 in the Rolex Rankings and Shibuno needs to maintain a place in the top 15 so Japan can get 3 representatives into the Olympics.

I suspect that it's part of the cooperation between the tours rather than a foreshadowing of a merger or acquisition.
  16. Rooting for Wei Ling-Hsu to pull through on her home soil. Teresa Lu came up a little bit short in Japan last week, perhaps she's peaking at the end of the year. How much air time does Shibuno get? I assume she, Nelly and Jin Young will be the feature pairing.

  18. Rooting for a Ji Hyun Kim win, with top 5s from Hana Jang and Char Young Kim. How is Sung Hyun getting away with not teeing it up in this event?
  19. > @18majors said: > @Newinup > > It looks like Danielle Kang will vault over to Rolex No.11, kicking Hinako one notch down to No. 12. > This should give Hinako more incentives to join LPGA IN 2020. > Maybe. There isn't much time for other Japanese players to catch her for an Olympic spot. Ai Suzuki could do it, if she goes on a tear similar to her 2018 start, but she's nursing an injury.
  20. MJ looks like she could win again this season. Late season run into the top 15 of the Rolex Rankings coming?
  21. Recently I did another search on Tunein radio for golf shows and podcasts and came across one discussing the Solheim Cup. I've made it through each show on the event except for the final day. Give it a listen if you're interested. Listen to 2019 Solheim Cup preview on TuneIn http://tun.in/tjf7hL
  22. Lydia Ko battles and Azahara Munoz for the victory on Sunday. Ko drinks the milk and kisses the bricks.
  23. Will there be any strokes based system for the CME Group Tour Championship? Or is everyone staring at even?

Six of the top ten players in birdie percentage are from Korea, including the top 3. Nelly is ranked 4th. The top 3 players in scoring average are Korean, as are 5 of the top 10.
