2017: Lorena Ochoa Match Play

This week the LPGA moves to Mexico for the playing of the Citimanamex Lorena Ochoa Match Play Presented by Aeromexico and Delta.

Here is my preview:

Glad more of the top players are here.Last year was pretty sad. I hope its well attended. Too bad its not going to be broadcast. I don't think people realize tournaments have to foot the bill and its around $500,000 to make it happen. For some events tv coverage isn't the most important thing and could mean the difference between having an event and a small profit or having no event and no profit at all.

Strange that Anna N is skipping out. Thought it would be good Solheim practice. Lexi is playing the Salonpas cup on the JLPGA and probably is getting a nice appearance fee , close to what the winner will get for winning this event. I would imagine that if there is an american on the bubble for Solheim and she does well here she will have Juli's attention who I am sure will be around watching.

Too bad Lorena isn't playing the actual event and just a hit and giggle during the event. Some outlets seem to have thought she was going to play in the matchplay portion.

I had also read that she was playing.

They came up with some excuse that since the Hall of Famers Exhibition wasn't a sure thing until a little later they just put out there that Lorena was going to participate but not necessarily how.

Some good, first round match-ups

Charley Hull vs. Nelly Korda
Carlota Ciganda vs. Gaby Lopez
Lizette Salas- Michelle Wie ( Potential Solheim Cup Team mates)
Caroline Masson- Morgan Pressel ( could be a Solheim Cup match-up)

By the pictures on Social Media, the Hall of Famers Exhibition was much better attended than the actual event. Huge Galleries following the 4 hall of famers maybe 2-3 people watching the final and consolation match.
