2014 LPGA Swinging Skirts in Daly City...sounds nice.

post #1 of 7

Right.  An LPGA event, sponsored by a Taiwan golf group brings their enthusiasm and money to the SF neighborhood, Lake Merced Golf Club. The group sponsored a pro tourney in Taiwan last year and Lydia Ko won that one.  She and many others, in fact the world top 10 ranked ladies expected to play.

Nice purse, this could definitely give a nice boost to the LPGA.

It's on.  After 2 rounds, Stacy Lewis at -6,  Lydia Ko and French lady Icher at -5.  Compared to men's tourney many nationalities in top 20 here. Cool, foggy weather near SF so some delays expected.

I was there today (3rd round) in person.  It was cold and windy in the morning and the players had it tough - a par on any hole was a good score.   As the day went on, weather warmed up and wind calmed down and scores got better.  Later on, it became a match play between Stacy and Ko, each trading birdies and running away from the field.  TV screen doesn't do justice.   If a tour comes to near your area, go see it.

Good work from Ko - her demeanor is amazing. That shot on 18 was legit.

Yeah, I watched that as well.  Pretty impressive on all of their parts to hit such good shots on 18 coming in (including Shin).

 

Especially great shot on Ko's part after having already seen Lewis' approach, and ESPECIALLY great putt to avoid the playoff.

 

P.S.  Another solid showing from Michelle Wie (T9).

Missed the last round, got to see the back nine of the 3rd round. Great course, cool to see it get some recognition, would be an awesome track for a women's US Open. 

 

Looks like the weather was pretty good, we use to call it Lake Miserable ;-)
