Yealimi Noh was always pretty inconsistent; even last year, she had a couple of good events, but several more events where she was pretty ordinary. She has a lot of work to do to smooth out her game. She doesn't have nearly as much high level amateur golf experience as Andrea Lee, for instance. But give her a couple of seasons, and I think she'll get there.
Everyone is missing the real story, really the only interesting story of the week: In Gee Chun was actually on the leaderboard! In the third round. I pretty much stopped watching the coverage when it became clear that they were going to totally ignore her.
I wonder: what's it going to take for her to shoot a round in the sixties? Thought it was going to happen today. But this is still loads better than the Ohio events. Today's stats: 263 driving average , 16/18 GIR , 9/13 FW , 33 putts... OK, she needs to make a few more putts. But the rest of those stats are decent.
Mission on Sunday: she's laid the groundwork, now shoot a great score in the 60s, secure a top ten, and keep smiling!!! Hwaiting!
PS - her group: In Gee, Minjee and Xi Yu Lin. Yeah, I'd follow that group.
OK, if In Gee doesn't win (unlikely she will, but I can dream), then the second best result would be for Jennifer Song to FINALLY get a title. Especially given how they keep repeating on the coverage that she hasn't won. We GET it, she hasn't won. Now, Jennifer: make 'em eat those words!
Worst case scenario: Song has the title in the bag, messes up on the final green and hands the trophy to Kang.
I watched some of the Broadcast and noticed that Amy Yang has changed her putting grip. She now putts with left hand low and a slightly longer putter. The change may have been a while ago but I don't recall seeing it. Anyway she has always been a good putter, so why the change.

A veteran final group as all three are past 30 years of age. The bespectacled Jennifer Song turned 30 late last year. The weathered-cheeks Stacy Lewis says she loves links golf. She's looking to return to the victory stand for the first time since the 2017 Portland Cambia.
Lydia Ko is showing no ill effects after the collapse of last Sunday. I look for her to win this year.
The broadcast times are not amenable to this Westcoaster. Good thing I still set the alarm for 5:20 on work days to allow me to catch more action. I awoke at 6:30 this morning. I may have to set it again for tomorrow.
I like the cinematography. The rugged Scottish coastlines are photogenic. And there have been a few camera angles that show the slopes of the greens perfectly.
The announcing duo is a mixed bag. The guy is fine. That's how I found out the final group were all older than 30. The color-commentator is decidedly beige though.

"In Chun" on the TV leaderboard. JFC. This is what Korean women get in the west for all their success--microaggressions. In this case it might just be the usual incompetence slash indifference--there are seven players within one shot of the leader with a few holes to go and they flash the leaderboard once every ten minutes.
A -2 final round for KT with a very steady card...just 1 bogey vs. 3 birdies. Good for a T29 finish...on to the AIG!
The playoff is about to start as I write this, but Ms. Poutyface really earned her nickname today. The combination of sulking and anger makes her unwatchable. I wonder if she would be complaining to the press if it was Cristie Kerr that was slow playing her.
"In" Chun also carded a -2 today. Good to see her back in the game.
I have bad news for the LET TV director: I don't think you can submit a TV broadcast for a Best Cinematography Oscar. Maybe next time stick to showing golf.
Wrong thread but congrats to 6 for a 66 with 6 birdies.
