Who knows when Kelly Tan will get into a field this season.
Then again, last year she qualified for every single event after the Covid break -- including all 4 majors -- and earned nearly a quarter million dollars. That wouldn't have happened in a normal year with her status.
So her 2020 and 2021 seasons got flip-flopped. Things could be worse. In the meantime, she's staying in playing shape for whenever she gets the opportunity. And she gets to keep the quarter mil.
Kelly Tan is listed as entered the Kia Classic.
I'm sure jumpcut is aware of that, but he can't be sure.
She's in danger of being bumped out of the field, if five more higher priority players (Su Oh, Su Yeon Ryu, A Lim Kim, Jessica Kordda, Ariya and Moriya Jutanugarn) sign up to play.
My field rating for this event is a pretty solid 61% (up from 58% last year). Nine of the top 12 players in the world will be teeing it up. My breakdown is 78% from the LPGA Priority List and 54% from the Rolex Rankings.
Top players skipping the event this week include: Minjee Lee Ariya & Moriya Jutanugarn Hannah Green So Yeon Ryu Inbee Park Mi Hyang Lee Amy Olson Mirim Lee

8 hour delay in coverage is what happens I guess when LPGA and PGAT play in the same time zone. Plus this week they also have to compete with Champions Tour Shit In A Box Championship, and in the current TV pecking order, LPGA is #3 unfortunately. The US golf watching public and women's golf are pretty much estranged at this point. The Annika invite seems like a kind of last ditch effort at reconciling, if only for a weekend.
I was hoping that uploading the Hannabank Championship would have a sub-conscious affect on Yani. Because she was Ranked number one at that time and won the Tournament. It didn't help, she did have three birdies, but two triples and two doubles, +9. She still have a chance to have one good round, before the next Tournament.
