Lotte Championship Preview

7 posts in this topic

After a one week break, the LPGA resumes its schedule with the playing of the LPGA Lotte Championship Presented by J Golf. This will start a stretch of six tournaments over a seven week period, that will be capped off by the year's second major championship.

There will be a pretty solid field, with newly crowned Kraft Nabisco champion Inbee Park, and the world's number one player Stacy Lewis, leading the way.
Although there are a few key players sitting it out, my strength of field rating is still a very solid 80.5%.
Among the players sitting it out this week are: Amy Yang, Catriona Matthew, Lexi Thompson, Chie Arimura, Ayaka Uehara, and Jimin Kang.

This will be tournament number 7 of 28 to be played this year.

Here are the key details:

Was watching this afternoon and really enjoyed it. Salas was so close to sinking that final putt to go to -20 (-11 for the day!) and then just chunked it in the playoff. Good run though. Also not sure if its just this tournament but I really like the wed-sat schedule.

Wish I could have tuned in, didn't watch any golf last week. As a Suzann fan I try to watch when she's amongst the leaders. Really like the way she plays.

I had the opportunity to play this course last january. Very nice course located on the leeward side of Oahu beautiful views of the both the mountains and the Pacific ocean. We stayed at the Disney Aulani resort which abuts the Ko Olina golf course. I was quite disappointed that they did not show either the Aulani resort or the Marriot resort. IMO the LPGA really missed the boat on that. If it was me I would have had the LPGA players videoed at the Disney resort's fabulous water park area. It would have been a win win for both the LPGA and DIsney. I guess it would have been a severe conflict for the NBC who aired the event.

ABC should buy the LPGA contract from NBC and promote the LPGA in there various Disney commercials. Those attractive young LPGA players would be a refreshing improvement to Disney advertising and also increase much needed interest in the LPGA tour. Imagine Natalie Gulbus and Michele Wie riding down Splash mountain or waving good bye on a DIsney cruise ship. But what do I know?

    • First round foursome clubchampionship was yesterday. First round is to cut the field to 16 pairs, format Stableford without handicap. You get 3 points for a birdie, 2 for a par, 1 for a bogey. Worse than bogey is zero points. My playing partner had the tee off on hole 1 and hit it left in the water. I had a shot avoiding some trees at 140y from the flag and hit it at 3 feet, par.  After 5 holes 9 points (1 bogey), but then a streak of 3 bad holes and still 9 points. But then 3 pars in a row and all together 11 pars and two bogeys (24 points) was enough to end 5th (best team 31 points).  Next weekend we will play against the team that ended 13th. That will be matchplay. 
    • Does it make sense to write ".........combined together"? Why not just write "............combined"? Let's not call the kettle black. Anyway..... the following are excerpts from The Australian Golf Club's Dress Code. They are not typical of what is expected in Australia, but  some of the snootier clubs are very strict and do little to change the stuffy reputation of the game. ‘Sporting attire’. Collared shirts which must be tucked in at all times. Tailored shorts to the knee, with a belt, may be worn. Closed in shoes must be worn with socks at all times (see Definitions for appropriate socks).  Men - Collared shirts which must be tucked in at all times. Trousers must be tailored and worn with a belt. Tailored shorts to the knee, with a belt, may be worn. When wearing shorts on the course, Members must wear long socks or short white socks which are either plain or which bear only a Golf Club logo. Anklet type socks are not acceptable. Shoes must be of a type which have been specially manufactured for the playing of golf.  Jeans of any description are not acceptable anywhere in the Clubhouse or on the Course. Children 12 years or younger are exempt.  If you turn up here wearing socks with a small Nike logo they will sell you a pair of plain white ones for about $30.
    • May 27th:- 10 mins full swing practice (Driver). Moved the tee further forward in the stance, and concentrated on sliding the hips to initiate the through swing.  
    • Whether I score better riding vs. walking depends on who I am with. I have two friends who are VERY slow players and if I am in the cart with them for some reason it cost my 5 strokes a round.
    • Playing there next year. My buddy is getting married there, we have discussed this very topic and have agreed to re-tee as we will never play there again. Plus with our scores it really doesn't matter an 8 there will match a couple others on the card.
