I for one would love to see the Pak Picker live on, whether under that name or a new one. I would hate to see the tradition lost, and I really appreciate a pool that does not flight players and force me to pick from the back of the field.
Hoping that I am not the only one who is thinking this way, I am creating this thread for us to make our picks. As usual, your top 12 along with up to three alternates need to be submitted before the first group tees off, so no later than Thursday 26 January at 7 AM Eastern Time.
If nobody else steps forward I am willing to do the scoring, though it will not be nearly as prompt as in past years (as I usually record the tournaments and watch them days late).
Top 12: 1. Henderson, Brooke M. 2. Jutanugarn, Ariya 3. Yang, Amy 4. Hull, Charley 5. Kim, Hyo-Joo 6. Phatlum, Pornanong 7. Lincicome, Brittany 8. Kim, Sei Young 9. Korda, Jessica 10. Thompson, Lexi 11. Martin, Mo 12. Wie, Michelle
Alternates: a1. Uribe, Mariajo a2. Creamer, Paula a3. Piller, Gerina
Pak Picker is alive. Couldn't wait. I did the scoring. First time, so be kind. Winner is:
1. Shung, with 5 picks for a score of 48.5 and 10 points in the Standings.
2. GDSmyth, with 4 picks for a score of 40.0 and 9 points in the Standings.
3. Ghinhee, with 4 picks for a score of 39.25 and 8 points in the Standings.
4. Cannuck, with 3 picks for a score of 34.0 and 8 points in the Standings.
If I pass the test, I will gladly do the next tournament scoring. I'm retired and have the time. However, I don't have the speed it takes to do each round or the computer savvy, but I would like to keep the memory of Pak Se Ri alive with Pak Picker.
