The rules say to pick 3 from Group C, but everyone picked only 2.

That was a typo.
3 from C would be a problem. That is a potential high cut group

I agree - it would be fun to score (NOT).

It's a decent group of players, but they have been playing erratic. Pressel is a contest favorite. Fasi looks to be a future player, but it can be a grinder out there for rookies. Some others are also trending positive. Salas,Annie Park. In gee is a top player that has been dropping, but is do for a good tournament. Plus some major winners that have not been up to par but are well liked, Nodrqvist, Hall, Lindberg, Martin. Concolino is always so hot and cold.

This was my though process in creating this group. I think it is a tough selection. It usually gets a lot of thought, with some players moving between B and C on recent performance and historical performance.

A is usually the same old same old top 10, but some players do move out. Look at Feng. She has not been playing well of late. I don't have her in A any more. Big drop for a former 1.

Everyone likes Paula Creamer, but she is not making cuts, so it is difficult to include her. But I have to include players that we have at least heard of.

That's just some of my thought process when I create the groups. However I do have good confidence in group C this week. My Picks - Mo Martin is usually steady and would suspect to make the cut and finish middle of the pack, Fasi is my pick to take a chance. She played well last week. I went with Pressel as my alt pick, well because I like her, so that is with the heart and not the head. She has been playing better as of late but still a little up and down. But I expect good scores from Fasi and Martin, though more of longer shot picks.

Park as a safety winner pick. Maybe a point or 2, but she certainly will not miss the cut.

As a graduate of U of Arkansas, Fassi will probably have the biggest fan support.
