UL International Crown

This week the LPGA takes a break from its official tournament schedule, for the playing of the International Crown. This is a biennial event that will take place in even numbered years, as opposed to the Solheim Cup's odd numbered years. It is a global matchplay competition that will feature 8 countries battling for the rights to be called "The World's Best Golf Nation."

Here is my preview and more:

I don't give much hope for the US Team.

My Surprise team is Thailand. England might also surprise.

I don't think Japan plays well as a team.

Made for west coast tv. Not Sure if I can make it to 3 AM NY time.

So Yeon Ryu has asked Korean fans to 'refrain from very, very sharp criticism'

One thing about the US team is that they are tall except Kerr. Can't dress, but are tall.

In fairness Michelle and Jessica must be the two tallest golfers on the LPGA Tour.






On a different note I see a typhoon is expected for Korea/Japan this weekend, wonder how much it will disrupt the tournament

Hmm. Seems lots of rain Fri and Sat. Looks really windy 20-30mph with rain for Sat.

Tee times are early Friday so they might get it in. Won't be fun.

I don't see them playing on Sat. I think 2 Rounds on Sun look probable.

Friday Schedule Update at UL International Crown | LPGA | Ladies Professional Golf Association


'In anticipation of inclement weather caused by Typhoon Kong-Rey, second-round tee times will be moved up on Friday. The second round of the 2018 UL International Crown will begin at 7:05 a.m. Additionally, the third round originally scheduled for Saturday will begin on Friday, following the completion of the second round.'

Surprising US and England teams so far. Not sure how the could not finish 2 rounds on Friday. It's only 16 rounds. Japan always seems to disappoints. Interesting that the Jutanagarn sisters do not play together.

So far looks good for Korea, US and England if the 3rd round ends as is. Makes the singles matches interesting if they all go in within a point of each other.
