Looks like a chance for showers on Friday, and t-storms Sunday.

For whatever reasons, Beth Ann Nichols has never taken to Nelly Korda as she did with Rose Zhang:

 

Nelly Korda rides streak of four wins into LPGA's first major, but where can she take the tour?

As we've touched on recently, most of the top players have yet to distinguish themselves in the majors. Double digit wins, but only one or two majors. No guarantee, but Nelly needs to snag a couple more big trophies to garner the next level of admiration.

We are getting plenty of live coverage but not showing the ESPN+ feature group as yet. Hopefully this is also available here. Looking forward to seeing the newly renovated course and hopefully it's a true major test weather permitting.

 

 

Let me tell you, I'm going to enjoy Lydia/Nelly featured group and watch every of their shots for four days! 😆

I will be interesting to see which players make the feature groups each day...there are a few who justifiably should be there the first two rounds based on RR rankings but I would not be surprised if Rose is in there on a favourable grouping again 😂

The beloved Rose is going to be in the featured group all weekend on network TV.

well, hopefully this event will be more interesting/exciting/competitive than the Masters R4 Back 9...  otherwise, just watch Muni He (Reserve #4 here) along the paddock with Alex Albon this weekend 😆.  

 

Seriously though, with Nelly being so dominant - won't be surprising if it ends up like the Scottie show last Sunday.  (not good for me, I'll be certainly switching channels if that happened, like Sunday the 14th)

I agree. She likes to point out it wasn't 4 consecutive tournaments on the schedule, that she took a 7 week break in-between her 1st and 2nd win. Some might think that the break has made this even more inpressive.

Also she says " four consecutive victories on the LPGA Tour hasn't done much to break into the mainstream." I disagree. I have talked with many people in person and online that are not big LPGA fans, but have been taking notice and are talking about the streak. I think (and hope) that the ratings this coming week will high.

Been a big fan of So Yeon for years. Got a chance to follow her group for a round at the 2017 KPMG, 2017 Volvik, and the 2018 KPMG. Total class. She'll be missed. Hopefully she gets a sponsor's invite somewhere down the road.

Used to play around with Photoshop. These two were favorites.
