It's three-and-out (like the Miami Dolphins offense) for this event, which starts Sept. 26. Erica Shepherd will skip school to play this one. The other amateur invite is local product Annabelle Pancake, who is a verbal commit to Clemson U. in 2020. I don't think she is related to Brooke Pancake. The Sept. 23 qualifier has 28 names, including Muni, Yamaguchi, Cheyenne, Olafia and Robyn Choi.
Surprising Jin Young Ko and Jeongeun Lee6 is not on the final list.
I'm not .... considering their play this season, why bother coming back to the USA? Cherry-picking the Asian events in the next two months is more convenient. But, they HAVE TO play the CME in order to pick up the year-end hardware. Ryu is in the field list, which is surprising ... maybe it's outdated info ... why go to Indiana the week before defending at the JWO? There's scuttlebutt about her taking it easy the rest of the year.
A pretty high number of Asians are teeing it up ... even semi-retiree Inky is playing, but I guess she has to since she did that hostage video for VOA, which is the week after.
BTW, Gabi Ruffels is skipping class to play the JWO next month.
Practice paid off for Kaeli Jones, who played the course two days ago (pic below). She won today's qualifier with a 68...played two years at South Alabama (never heard of it before) and two years at U. of Central FL (2018 grad).
Cheyenne Woods also got in with 69. Muni bombed out with a 75.
