Seriously? 2 1/2 minutes to hit a shot from the middle of the fairway, Carlota?    For the umpte time, professional golf needs a shot clock.   

I really like Stupples, either in the booth or on course.

Really missing Karen Stupples in the booth.  She’s the only color announcer doing the LPGA who’s willing to criticize anyone.  Judy, once in awhile, but you can tell she’d really rather not.  Bad shot

Nice to have back-to-back tournaments. It won't quite make up for the following 3 week gap, though.

 

Decent coverage after last week's fiasco. Three hours each day during normal hours. 

 

Weather looks decent for the first two rounds, but there's a chance for rain on the weekend. Fingers crossed.

 

A quick glance at the entry list shows pretty much the same names as this past week. Makes sense given the hour and thirty minute drive time between the venues. 

 

OK, enough of the jinx stuff, I'm going with Lydia this week. 'Just gotta avoid the big mistakes. Nelly should have another good week, as will Jin Young.

It would be so easy and boring to pick Nelly, JYK, SYK, DK or Brooke, but it's tough not to choose one of them.
Once again, I expect the native Floridians to play well. I couldn't help to notice the sweet swinging Amy Yang playing pretty well last week hope that continues.

I'm still rooting for Yu Lui , so that's my pick. My gut say's take Lexi or Yealimi. Wishing Esther Henseleit good luck as well.

Wish you're right here.

 

Yealimi, a California kid like Inbee Park, has the same problems with bermudagrass in Florida.  But, it maybe different this week; it's her second consecutive week playing bermudagrass.  It's the best way to learn.

 

She went -2 the last twelve holes last week, after shooting +7 the previous ten holes.

Not sure either will win but I'll pick a couple of players to be there in the end.  I think Danielle Kang will bounce back after the missed cut and play well this week.  I also Think SYK will do well this week, she shot a 66 on Sunday and got her taste for the low back.  I think she has a more SYK typical week.

Too bad Ha Na Jang  moved back to KLPGA - she was a great personality for the tour.  I’m beginning to regret my pick of Brooke for our contest - her putting may be too big of a handicap.  I’ll go with SYK this week with at least one Korda right on her heels.  Are Lexi and Lydia going to be the Tony Finaus - always right there but never closing the deal?

I'm with you on Ha Na. Always smiling and having fun, no slouch with the sticks either.

Lol. What? Simply can't put Lexi and Lydia in the same category as Tony. Both are proven winners multiple times over. They'll win again soon.

I can't believe he even made that comparison. Lydia and lexi have double digit wins and major wins. Finau has 1 PGA Tour win. Its like he hasn't watched the LPGA for almost a decade.

Certainly wouldn’t put them in the same category - probably could have phrased it as “Are they developing a Tony Finau syndrome?”  Lydia, for example, has finishes of 2, 6, 8, 4, 5, and 2 since the restart last summer.  Close but needs to finish one off.

Do you follow Draftkings?  What do you think of it?  

It's been a fantastic success as a business!  It went public less than one year ago in April 2020, and now has a market cap of $68.58 billions.

 

I'm pretty excited that there's this on-line betting outfit which is on shore and is bringing on LPGA big time.  Maybe they'll sponsor a LPGA tournament with a purse of $10.0 million.

 

Some interesting matches this week:

 

Jin Young Ko                       -112                          vs.                               Nelly Korda                         -118

Brooke Henderson              -125                         vs.                              Lexi Thompson                    -106
