This week the LPGA moves to Ontario, Canada for the playing of the Manulife LPGA Classic.
Here is my preview:
Tony IK Kim won this past week, I was wondering since you know a lot about the tour where has she been the last couple of years? I like to watch her play she seems like a very nice person and a very good player.
She has been on the LPGA all along. She has cut down on her schedule and doesn't play in all that many events anymore.
She has also not been playing all that well, I don't see her on the leader boards very often. She has so much talent it is surprising she is not contending more. Perhaps she just lost her will to compete. Thanks for the update.
The first round pairings have now been posted.
She has been hurt a good part the last year or so.
After her win, she said she was surprised her game came back so quickly.
She had been working with trainers etc etc
Can't remember what her issue was though. Sorry.
Thanks Spuzz, that is what I thought but was not sure. I was remembering that she had been out with an injury, but could not remember what had occurred. Thought I just had another brain fart.
Here are the leaders after round 1:
1 Mi Hyang Lee -8
1 Suzann Pettersen -8
3 Hyo Joo Kim -7
3 Laura Gonzalez Escallon -7

Tough loss for Lexi. I really though Chun was going to win it but congrats to Jutanugarn!
Poor Lexi, she really pissed it away on the back. Just goes to show lots of pressure and it's a hard game.
Here are the final results:
1 Ariya Jutanugarn -17(won playoff)
2 In Gee Chun -17
2 Lexi Thompson -17
4 Jodi Ewart Shadoff -16
