Ariya did get her hat trick. All contestants finished with either four of five correct picks that included the champ plus Lexi, In Gee and (with two exceptions) Brooke.
To be one of the four Pickers with five correct picks, you had to be one of the two (tatkins and baggerbob of the MyLPGA board) who picked Jessica Korda or two of the four who picked Hyo Joo Kim (Verdant Garden and TonyJ5). Yes, the other two who picked Hyo Joo (Dennis and Centurion) are also the two who failed to pick Brooke Henderson costing them the chance to win.
Of the top four, VG placed Ariya the closest to the top. He also placed In Gee closest to her 11th place (Tony and Bob both picked her to win.) Along with Bob, VG was spot on with Lexi's 6th place finish. Taken all together, Verdant Garden is the winner. Congratulations to me.
