Looks like a decent field, although a handful of top players are sitting out, e.g. Jin Young, Nelly, Lydia.

Gianna Clemente wins Monday qualifier AGAIN, 3peat. By 3. Maybe she makes cut this time?

 

I was similarly delighted to see Pannarat also successfully Monday-qualify (after many failed previous efforts)

This field doesn't have a lot of depth; an opportunity for Su Oh to win!  Given the opportunity, don't know why she isn't in the field?

 

Will be cheering for Bianca, Muni and Maria Fassi; they all need to do something big!

 

 

Maria can’t continue relying on Stacy for one good result per year to keep her card.

Maria got 132.500 points from the team event; she earned 27.180 the rest of the year.  She needs another 100.000 points to retain her card.  She did exceptionally well towards the end of 2021 season to retain her card; she'll need to do the same this year.  However, Maria is in better shape than Muni (15.297) or Bianca (58.147).  

 

My hunch is both Maria and Bianca will be OK; but Muni may need Alex Albon to drive her to every tournament to make it.

Really wish Hye Jin would just win already lol. It'll be a bummer if she finishes without one this year. Great year regardless.

 

Where has Yuka,Patty and Lee6 been all year? Don't they know they have expectations to live up to?

 

Hye Jin has the 3 good rounds and a bad round thing going for her right now and you're right there but then come up just short.  Sadly Patty, Yuka nad Lee6 are usually suffering the opposite most weeks right now and that's 1 good round followed by 3 bad ones, well when they can play 4 rounds in a week.

Thanks for reminding me cards are based on points, not Money. I’m still stuck in the old system.

This is a fantastic announcement; I have been watching Rory McIlroy of PGA Tour all year on ESPN+:

ESPN+ TO STREAM FEATURED GROUPS AT KROGER QUEEN CITY CHAMPIONSHIP, FIRST OF TWO LPGA TOUR EVENTS IN SEPTEMBER

 

One more reason Yealimi Noh needs to play much better!

Hard to imagine Linn Grant could pass on this opportunity but she’s not currently entered at Walmart.

Gianna Clemente, 14, shoots 65 in Cincinnati to Monday qualify for a third consecutive week on the LPGA

Beth Ann NicholsSeptember 6, 2022

It’s not just that Gianna Clemente has Monday-qualified for an LPGA event a third consecutive week. While that’s certainly impressive enough, consider that she also carded a 7-under 65 at Kenwood Country Club to win by three and earn her spot in the field at the Kroger Queen City Championship in Cincinnati.

 

At 14 years old, Clemente becomes the youngest player to ever Monday qualify for three consecutive events. She’s also only the second player to do it, following in the footsteps of South Korea’s Hee-Won Han in 2001. Han went on to win six times on the LPGA.

 

“I definitely didn’t expect a 65,” said Clemente, “but I got the putter on fire.”

Monday marked the first time Clemente has qualified on the actual tournament course. Weather kept her from being able to play a practice round at Kenwood, but she did walk 14 of the holes. Her father and caddie, Patrick, walked all 18. Clemente said she didn’t sleep well the night before and chalked it up to life on the road.

 

Clemente qualified for the CP Women’s Open in late August followed by the Dana Open in Sylvania, Ohio. She has yet to make the cut. The high school freshman was runner-up in her first U.S. Girls’ Junior appearance earlier this summer.

 

Anna Davis, 16, winner of the 2022 Augusta National Women’s Amateur, is competing this week on a sponsor exemption and saw her friend in the parking lot before she teed off.

“I just told her she’s big-time and to have a good round,” said Davis. “Yeah, but she’s a good friend of mine, and she’s solid. Especially being at that young of an age, I thought I was young, and then she just qualified three times in a row, and I was like, maybe I’m not that young.”

 

Amateurs must apply for an exemption to participate in LPGA local qualifiers. The Clementes live in Warren, Ohio, and Gianna went to the Dana Open as a kid, mostly following Lexi Thompson.

 

“I’ve learned that this is definitely what I want to do with my life,” said Clemente, “and this is where I want to belong in the future. I stick out a little bit now because I look young and I am young.”

 

Clemente said putting is what has held her back of late. Before Monday’s round, she used the metronome app on her cell phone to work on the speed of her stroke. She first began working with putting coach David Angelotti at Sea Island 18 months ago.

 

“I have a really naturally slow stroke,” said Clemente, “so I do my best to speed it up, and when I speed it up that works.”

 

Rain closed the course again Tuesday, so Clemente took the opportunity to catch up on her schoolwork. She worked on her world history, English, science and algebra classes prior to taking several calls from the media. She planned to get out her metronome again Tuesday afternoon.

 

“It’s definitely a lot easier to prepare now, having already seen the course,” said Clemente, “knowing what it looks like and knowing how to play it.”

Weather forecast looks good for the first two rounds, but Saturday afternoon brings rain. I would expect the tee times on Saturday to be moved up with threesomes going off on the 1st and 10th tees. Sunday looks wet.

 I'm seeing scatter t-storm on Sunday (Weather Channel for zip code 45243).. Cloudy on Saturday..  Hoping that the t-storm gets pushed back..

 

The weather here has been very spotty.. so, hopefully, they will get lucky..

    • In-hand photos of 2023 TaylorMade Stealth 2 Plus, Stealth 2, Stealth 2 HD drivers + fairways woods
      Check out our front page launch stories here and here. 
       
      What you need to know: For the first time, carbon is the most prevalent material by volume in a TaylorMade driver, and more carbon equals better performance, says the company. Last year, TaylorMade debuted a 60X Carbon Twist Face. With TaylorMade Stealth 2, engineers are bringing carbon to more of the golf club — and unveiling a new-and-improved Carbon Twist Face in the process. Stealth 2 Plus (low spin, most workable) Stealth 2, and Stealth 2 HD (draw bias, high launch, most forgiving) drivers make up the Stealth 2 family.
       
      Stealth 2 


       
      Stealth 2 Plus


       
      Stealth 2 HD



       
      What you need to know: Breakthrough movable weight technologies and versatile designs are the hallmarks of the 2023 TaylorMade Stealth 2 fairway woods. Stealth 2 Plus is branded as “three fairway woods in one” owing to the unique performance characteristics afforded by the 50-gram sole weight. Stealth 2 features a slightly lower profile 3D carbon crown than Stealth. This moves CG down and away from the toe with more weight in the rear of the club for higher launch and MOI. Ultra-high MOI Stealth 2 HD features an oversized 200cc head and low-profile sole, creating an easy-to-hit, draw-biased club.
