I have been lucky enough to see So Yeon win the ANA and her last LPGA win at the Meijer Classic. I also saw her win the first Tournament she played as a Professional on the Cactus Tour.
I saw Jin Young Ko win in Phoenix. There must have been others because I saw a lot of Dinah Shore/Nabisco/ANA and Phoenix Tournaments.
If you guys are speaking strictly of the LAST day of a tournament, I think the only last day I've ever attended for the LPGA was the 2017 USWO ... it was GREAT, until the first swing by Cyborg at #16 ... after that, it STUNK.
So, MHL moved up eight spots in CME ... but that pushed her up only two spots for Mediheal into the last position (#120) ... she might need the fire department to stay in that event. As for today, -1 thru 11 holes ... just stay away from the big numbers.
Chella needs this gadget to find the top-10 leaders ... is that a Captain America ball marker? Is she a fan of Fat Trick Reed?!
I wont mention anything about their good first round start until after I see what they do on the second round.
As I fast forwarded through the Broadcast all they showed was two Cameo appearing by Jeongeun Lee6. It seem like more and more they are ignoring the Korean golfers, especially by showing other golfers over par. It looks like poor Lexi is lost when she don't have reachable par fives.
The most memorable Seoul Sister victories I have witnessed are Sei Young Kim's miraculous victory over Inbee in extra holes in Hawai'i and Jiyai Shin's season-ending victory in 2008 at a Trump course in Florida.
What a pleasant surprise to see Judy Rankin commentate at this tournament. I was wondering if she was ever going to do it again knowing this is her last season doing so.
We haven't talked about it, but this is another ominously bad start for Minjee Lee. After her top five at the British and KPMG and win at US Women's Open, it looked like she might be in for a long stint at #1. Then she had a mediocre Evian, skipped out early in Canada, finished T-49 last week, and started this week with a 76. I wonder if she's 100% healthy?
Getty Images figured out what's wrong with Major League Minjee ... there is an imposter out there:

A degenerate gambler would have slit his wrists banking on Team Shibuno this year ... lots of trunks slams and mediocre finishes ... but, she still made a fortune this year ... you figure her out, I can't.
Great round clean round of minus nine mainly because of twenty three putts. The difference between the first and second round was the putting. However putting is a big part of the game, making them means you hit great putts.
A Lim with a two birdies two bogeys front nine, three birdies back nine. Still only four shots out of the lead and it's time she had one of her great birdies no bogey rounds.
Hye Jin Choi only minus one with four birdies three bogeys. She hit one more green than first round, but had five more putts.
They showed a Stat of putts missed between five and ten feet. Lexi Thompson was the highest no surprise there. Surprised that Hye Jin was the second highest.
Na Rin moved up the Leaderboard with a minus four round.
Some one commented that they hoped Yaeeun Hong is enjoying Cincinnati. She did enjoy it for two days. She had a good start to the year but since that bad round at the ANA. She has not been able to make hardly any cuts.
Spectacular stuff from Six. Too bad it happened off-camera, but hopefully even the LPGA won't find an excuse to avoid her tomorrow (although with Fassi near the lead, we can't be too sure). Saturday could be a turning point round for her season: if she can put together another solid day, she might be able to start playing regularly at the level we know she can reach. If it's another meh day, then today was probably just an anomaly. Go Six!
Hye-Jin didn't have her best stuff, but she outplayed Thitikul, who was 2 over par today. Sei Young was as usual really patchy. Looking forward to seeing what A Lim can do. She has been playing really well the past month or so and seems ready to make something happen. Nice day for Na Rin, too.
I went to O'Neill's Bar & Grill at Arroyo Trabuco Golf Club in Mission Viejo. After I hit 15, 8 irons then tried to make some 30 foot putts. I got an appetizer and of course several Gilfs were trying to talk with me. They wanted to know how to pronounce Jeongeun Lee6. I told them unless your blind her name is pronounced Hot6. If my health keeps keeping South, one of these Gilfs will take me in. All I have to do is learn the names of their dopey grandchildren.
