A solid 1-20. This should be a good tournament.

The men's field was a little iffy, but the cream always comes to the top. Looks like Rose or Stenson for the gold. Bubba for Bronze maybe, so it won't be some unknown's. That should bode well for 2020, for whomever are the top players then (Speith, Day, Rory ?)

But everyone on the leader board will be pushing hard. No sense hold back since there is no money on the line. So no lock for Rose or Stenson. Someone will go low so they can not falter.

Thread moved to the Olympics forum. The Olympics is not an LPGA Tournament.

I'm gonna root for Lexi in this. She has got to be able to putt. Piller is my surprise pick.

Short course, but no advantage to long or short players. Advantage to the accurate.

With the shorten field with a lot of players not know didn't seem reasonable.

Plus, I'm actually going to Las Vegas tmr for the Week. So it's gonna be tough to even watch. But with the additional 3 hrs it should really be in the morning out west, but I may need what little sleep I get.

Contest back when the LPGA is back.

Pillar looking good 3rd round. Lewis terrible start.

Doubt anyone catches Inbee if hand can hold up.

Slow play in 2nd round. Worse then your local municipal on its worst day. At least someone did get a penalty. Don't blame the fans. The men did not play this slow. Not many trees or hazards for this.

And I did have it on the TV in the poker room. Hotel room does not have golf chanel but back 9 on Sat should be on nbc. Can get golf channel on phone.
