2017: Blue Bay LPGA

This week the LPGA moves to China for the playing of the Blue Bay LPGA. Many of you may remember last year's nail biting finish when Minjee Lee's birdie on the 72nd hole, was enough to defeat a charging Jessica Korda by one stroke. Ariya Jutanugarn finished just one stroke further back.

Here is my preview and lots more of this week's event:

I generally like Shanshan but something about her being number 1 doesn't seem right. I guess that is what happens when no one player steps up to dominate. Consistency then becomes the determining factor and you get random players like her and SHP being proclaimed THE world's best instead of just one of the world's best.

Yeah, she seemed to creep up on #1. Ko and Jutanugarn have done very little this year. Especially Ko. Swing changes and multi caddies are not working out, no matter what she says.

Lexi had a good year but the ANA penalty did some damage. That should have been a major win and there were at least 2 other tournaments that she could not close out after that. Still a good year and clearly the best American. Still going strong is Kerr. When she is on she is on, but it is tough when you get older to do it week in and week out. Still a good year.

SHP had a good year. But she may be the dullest person out there.

Feng had a steady year with some recent wins. Should have won the US Open.

The numbers are the numbers.

Eventually we will get into our predictions for next year, but I have problems with Ko getting back to 1. I think next year will be pivital for her.
