It looks like I put the evil eye on Crazy Train Jane...she is not going to Woburn. They had a nine-way playoff for the last three of eleven spots and Jane didn't make it.

Frida Kinhult made it and is back one top of the WAGR list.
Golf Channel reports that an estimated 38 players who had been at the course for hours did not receive their clubs until 5 p.m. due to a bizarre set of circumstances centered around Thompson and her forgotten passport.
It didn’t make Monday any easier to stomach for players like Ryan O’Toole, who lost out on nearly a full day of major prep.
“I don’t know why the driver would agree to accommodate one person knowing it would punish about a third of the field,” O’Toole told Mell. “The driver should have said, ‘Hey, I’ve got to get these clubs to Woburn. If you want the passport, somebody’s going to have to fly there to get it and bring it back.’”
This all occurred just days after Thompson posted a strongly-worded critique of course conditions at the Evian Championship, which she said were so bad that she was thankful to miss the cut.
Great job by Ol' Randall informing us that 38 players are out of their minds. Is it really a good idea to send a broken down old caddie across France and through the Chunnel in a rental van overstuffed with the tools of your trade? How cheap can you get? I looked at the map and it's only 50 km to Geneva from the Evian golf course...flying is a lot faster (duh!) and if they don't trust the airlines, isn't there some kind of reliable air freight service they can use?
Don't tell me they cancelled Lexi's pre-tournament press conference. I thought they wanted high ratings?
I never make predictions but this week I'm picking Lexi for the win by 3 shots. Or she will miss the cut by 3 shots. No middle ground. Let's see what she's made of.
I predict she goes MIA after this week (either literally or figuratively), makes a few more vaguely depressed-sounding social media posts, generates a bunch of concern among the media, then wins the last event of the year in Florida, again.
