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?
