2019: AIG Women's British Open

This week the LPGA travels to England for the playing of the AIG Women's British Open. Georgia Hall will be trying to defend the title she won last year by two strokes over runner-up Pornanong Phatlum.

Here is my preview and much more:

I actually picked Charley Hull to win in the contest on this forum cause I figured she's probably played this course hundreds of times, but apparently she's only played it twice! Woburn has two others that she prefers. She seems to be holding up ok though, pretty solid start for the English women.

Outside chance for Morgan Pressel in the final round. Money should be on Park.
Can't see Shibuno closing the deal, though she came back tough on the back nine Saturday. They say it should be a hard setup. Hull would be tough at -9, but would be another big story for England.

Well done by Shibuno. Amazing story. Feel bad for Salas. She deserved it too. Was dialed in today.
Nice to see a big push by Pressel on the back 9.

A bit of a disappointment in Park. I know that she does not show emotion, almost robotic, but she seemed disinterested. Almost the direct opposite of Ko. She was focused and into it. Nice tournament by Buhai.

But it was something about Shibuno today. What I loved was she just went up to the ball and hit it. Especially the winning putt. No walking around, looking in the book, addressing the ball, standing away etc. Actually she made no time for drama. Read it quickly and hit it dead center for the Trophy.

Now it will be interesting to see the contrast back to links golf for the Scotish Open. Solheim is also in Scotland but not on a links course.

Watching highlights now on BBC, definitely agree re Jin Young Ko, its actually amazing in a way, she won a major just last week and has won two other tournaments this year yet manages to constantly remain hungry to win. No surprise she is where she is in the Rolex Rankings.

Fantastic stuff from Morgan, she slipped off the radar the past few years. 2019 has been a pretty solid year for her, feel like she's on the cusp of winning a tournament this year. Congrats to Hinako, pleasure to watch these past few days.
