Hi Blue,
May I make a suggestion? I was looking at the field and unfortunately is not very strong. Maybe to make it more interesting as far as picking the winner in Morelia, we could all pick one that is not Lorena. I would imagine most people will see her as the favorite to win.

I think thats a good idea Lumazi. Maybe we could have a limit to how many times someone could pick a player to win, maybe 2 or 3.

For this week only, let's take lumazi's suggestion and all pick a winner other than Lorena.

In general, I don't like the idea of excluding Lorena because it implies that we think she'll win, but, realistically, there is very high chance and she probably wouldn't even be in the field if it weren't in Mexico, so it seems fair.

Moving forward, I'd suggest we keep Lorena in and not treat her differently. Let's just see how the season unfolds.

And remember to pay attention to how point splitting works. Look at the past tournaments and see who has benefited the most in the bonus round. It's not always the people who pick Lorena or who pick the winner.

To recap ... for the Coronoa Championship, pick any winner except Lorena Ochoa.

Also, there's no reason we have to play with 15 pairs this week. We could edit it down to 12.

Since time is getting late, I've decided that we're going to move ahead with only 12 pairs for Rounds 1 and 2 of the Corona Championship.

And we will, FOR THIS TOURNAMENT ONLY, have a no-Lorena rule for the bonus round.

Also, again, please don't worry about the contest being skewed by picking Lorena in the bonus round. Picking her has not always resulted in the most bonus points even when she wins, nor has picking the winner necessarily resulted in the best outcome. I know you do not all know this because I know that most people are not clicking over to my blog site to look at the charts (I just checked the stats and I know who is going there and who is not).

Best player to pick in the bonus round and that player's finish:
(Only players who were picked in the bonus round are included, obviously)

Kraft
Annika Sorenstam - T2

Safeway International
Lorena Ochoa - 1

MasterCard Classic
Jane Park - T3

HSBC Champions
Paula Creamer - 3 and Lorena Ochoa - 1 (tie)

Fields Open
Paula Creamer - 1

SBS Open
Annika Sorenstam - 1
