The top of the tournament poster says in big caps THE MAJOR and it starts Thursday with a field of 132 (Ai Suzuki is defending champ). They're playing at Passage Kinkai Island GC, about 10 miles north of Nagasaki. The course is surrounded on three of four sides by Omura Bay and is set at 6735 yards. SBS Golf will show 90 minutes of the Friday thru Sunday rounds at 7PM local time.
Three of the four par-3s are over large water hazards.
BML before she bogeyed #17 & 18. SBS Golf showed her last five holes. She's drove the ball well, but didn't leave herself in the best places with her approaches and chips. Her highlights and interview:
Well, the schedule is to get up at 6 AM to watch this one, then multitask with the LPGA at 7:12 AM (Mi Hyang's tee off). I'm not even checking JLPGA scoreboard tonight, but here are a few early pix from Round Three. As the for KLPGA, there's the later edited replay if I'm interested (I barely am)...maybe they're the people with the fake Major...no Dumbo and no JY Ko (how did she get into Evian, anyway?).
Just took my last look at the Leader Board. Momoko Ueda, thinks to a minus eight today has the lead, at minus six. Bo Mee is at minus four through seventeen. Teresa Lu minus four through twelve. Ha Neul and J A Shin minus two. Look like an great final round tomorrow, even though things may change later.
