The Final Field list is out for this event and it appears that Inbee, Sei Young, Lexi and Michelle will be skipping Portland, which makes their inclusion in the tournament's Spectator Guide a bit disingenuous.
Well, I'm back. Had to re-register. Even get a new screen name......grrrrr.
Anyway, I'm back for my annual jaunt of Columbia Edgewater and the Safeway, this now my lucky 13th year holding the score sign. I'll be first off the first tee again bright and early Thursday morning. And will post all my ramblings after the tourney is over. Man I've really been out of it when it comes to the LPGA. (I'm too lazy to check, has Miss Pak retired?)
This year should be very interesting as just down the road, the 2015 Woman's USGA Amateur is playing opposet, and is at the course Ben Hogan won the 1948 Open on, Portland Golf Club. The Am is blitzing the airwaves with advertising and I haven't heard SQUAT on the LPGA tourney. Personally, I'd kinda rather see the AM because I had a great time watching it when it was at Punkin' when Kimberly Kim (WOW, that's a blast from the past) won it to become the youngest ever winner when she was like 14, braces and all.
Weather will be nice, with a chance of showers only on Friday, otherwise mid 80's and sunny.
As for me, well, I'm still reffing soccer, fit as a fiddle but have a bad, very painful case of tennis elbow at the moment, retirement is coming up fast, and I'm off in a couple weeks to Washington DC to attend a reunion of all us parents and kids from my daughter's orphanage in China. Daughter's 16 now and still a delight.
On the other side, but I'll try and get a few pics up as the tourney progresses.
Happy…..not so much of a problem, just an inconvenience. Was surprised and pleased at the new format. But I had to dig real deep to find my avatar pic again after my home laptop computer crash. Luckily I hadn’t deleted it on my work computer when I cleaned it up a bit ago. Still running marathons? Your kid must be 10 by now. 3putt…I thought they banned you from this forum?!?!?!? Yep, I still have Herbie, but don’t drive it much. Last time I did was a parade in Spring here in Vancouver. Runs like a top, still. I’ll never get rid of him. But I will get rid of my Bus. 40 horse power in a Bus is just too stressful to drive around in. Just have to fix the brake lights and the blinkers (I think it’s the same problem ground point)and it’s on the market. I was doing some research to do a Subaru conversion in it, but ended up just buying a Subaru and love it, especially the heat in winter. And you can get on the freeway without causing a mile back up chain reaction. I am looking forward to the reunion. Last one we had, most of the kids were around 8-10. Now 8 years later a lot are in college and high school. Will really be good catching up on things and seeing the kids.Time just flies. My Rachel is a junior this year and plays lots of soccer. Loves it.
Verdent….take care, I’ll miss you. Love your avatar. Geilin
I’ll post more when things start out on the course (Hey, I just heard my first Portland LPGA commercial on the radio tonight!)

My daughter is 6 and will be going into 1st grade in a few weeks. Hard to believe how the time flies! Sorry about the change in message board, but the provider of our old one decided to yank it offline without telling me or anyone, so I had to scramble to set something else up. This one has worked out pretty well, so I can't complain.
You may be confusing 3putt with bam bam, the other crazy Asian guy. I had to ban ban bam bam when he went off his meds and started posting all that wacky stuff a year or so ago.

ol'68.....you white guys think we all look the same....the guys that got banned were Koreans....Bam Bam and Korean....I'm Chinese....hopefully you pick up on it soon so you don't make the mistake of posting Shanshan's name on your standard bearer sign when it's Hee Young Park in your group.
