  1. A big congratulations goes out to Ha Na Jang for winning the ISPS Handa Women's Australian Open. Her eagle on the 17th hole, and bidie on the 18th, enabled her to blow past the rest of the field and go on to win by 3 strokes. This week the LPGA moves to Thailand for the playing of the Honda LPGA Thailand. Last season brought us close finishes in almost every tournament.....but this was not one of them. Lexi Thompson's twenty under par total of 268 blew away the field, and was 6 strokes better than runner-up In Gee Chun and 7 strokes better than 3rd place finishers Jessica Korda and Amy Ya
  2. ISPS Handa Women's Australian Open Preview & Pairings After a two week break the LPGA heads to Australia for the playing of the ISPS Handa Women's Australian Open. This tournament has a history of very close and very exciting finishes. Who could ever forget 2012, when Jessica Korda won in a 6 player playoff. Or the following year when Jiyai Shin battled it out with Yani Tseng for 72 holes, with Jiyai winning by 2 strokes. In 2014, nine players finished within 3 strokes of the lead with Karrie Webb becoming the eventual winner. In 2015, Lydia Ko brought home the trophy with a two str
  3. Yes. That is where it is going to be played. I had a link to the story, but your great and powerful leader removed it.
  4. The LPGA will announce today a new tournament to be added to the 2017 LPGA schedule. It will be held in Indianapolis, Indiana and played around the famed oval racetrack.
  5. Michelle Wie Wins U.S. Open for her First Major Championship Michelle Wie Wins Her First Major Championship We have all waited for this for such a very long time. Michelle Wie won her first major championship today, by winning the U.S. Open by two strokes over Stacy Lewis. Michelle started the day in a tie for first place with Amy Yang. At the start it did not appear that this was going to be Michelle's day as she and her playing partner (Yang), both bogeyed the first hole. At that point in the tournament there were 6 players within 3
  6. Her name is Inbee Park and she is still (just barely), #1. Your points though are well taken.
  7. First let me congratulate Jessica Korda for winning the Airbus LPGA Classic. Jessica defeated Anna Nordqvist by 1 stroke in another incredibly exciting LPGA finish. At one point on the back nine, six players were tied for 1st place. Jessica birdied the 18th hole to secure her victory. Jessica Korda wins 2014 Airbus LPGA Classic I have been critical at times the past couple of years, voicing my disappointment at the results of the American players' finishes at the Solheim Cup, and especially major
  8. I have been writing about the LPGA for quite some time now, but never has it been more enjoyable for me than it is now. What has made this more enjoyable with each passing week, is that things have finally begun to change. There is no doubt that the LPGA in 2014 has reached new heights in popularity that hasn't been seen in many years. Attendance has been up both internationally and here at home. Television ratings have increased dramatically. Media coverage (newspapers, magazines) has increased. Why this sudden turnaround? Here are what I think are the m
  9. Now that we have completed about 1/3 of the LPGA season, I would like to look at the players that have made the biggest leaps, and taken the biggest falls in the Rolex Rankings this year. The Rolex Rankings system awards points to players based on an accumulated 104-week "rolling" period, with the points awarded in the most recent 13-week period carrying a stronger value. A player is then ranked according to her average points per tournament, as determined by dividing her total number of points by the number of eligible tournaments played during the 104-week period. A minimum divi
  10. This is the LPGA at its best. It doesn't get better than this. Wie & Lexi in the final group with a Hall of Famer and a future star playing ahead of them. For those people who think the LPGA is a joke, tune in tomorrow you might learn something.
  11. An interesting side note: Paula Creamer tied Tiger Woods for the all time record for consecutive cuts made in major championships with 37. Tiger did it, I believe, between 1997 and 2006. Paula has never missed a major cut in her career. She also has made her last 73 cuts on the LPGA tour.
  12. Suzann Pettersen is not in the field. She has missed the last few week's with back problems.
  13. Paula Creamer sank a 75 foot eagle putt on the second playoff hole to defeat Azahara Munoz and win the HSBC Champions on Sunday for her 10th career victory. Creamer and Munoz finished 72 holes tied at 10-under 278, one stroke ahead of Karrie Webb, who led after every round but bogeyed three of her last six holes to give up a three-shot lead and finish third.
  14. Yes she has played well so far this year. She also finished 3rd, 24th 7th, and 11th in her last 4 tournaments last year. As strange and unusual that putting stance is, it is working. Michelle finished #113 on the LPGA in Putts per greens in regulation in 2012. She improved to 25th last year. As far as the people here that say she does not want it bad enough, I disagree. Michelle has finally found a peaceful place. She no longer has the pressure of having to live up to that 13 year girl she was. She now is comfortable just being a very good player that will contend most weeks
  15. The blonde wearing the black dress is Carly Booth....she is a member of the Ladies European Tour. I was lucky enough to get an interview with her during the British Open in St. Andrews last year.
