  1. Nothing against Cheyenne Woods... I hope she does great in final 2 stages, but I'll be surprised if she earns her LPGA card in December. The others you listed are good bets to finish in the top 20 at final stage.

    1. I agree with you Dave. Cheyenne has really struggled on the Symetra Tour, but her name always attracts viewers. ;-)

  2. Is "Su Oh" (amateur from Australia) Su-Hyun Oh? If so, she deserves to be on your list, along with 2013 JLPGA ROY Mamiko Higa!

    1. I don't know if Su Oh is Su Hyun Oh. Su-Hyun Oh is ranked #294 in Rolex Rankings. I agree with you on Mamiko.

  3. Looking for details about the unfortunate DQ of Holly Clyburn after 1st round. From what I have heard she shot a 71 yesterday, but in the scoring tent the player who was keeping her card stormed out of the tent without signing the card (because that player shot a bad score) and Holly turned it in with only her signature on it. If that is accurate, Clyburn should have called in a rules official before formally turning in her card.

  4. Apparently the volunteer scorer told her she was "good to go" without the other girl's signature. Lesson learned if that was the case. Always call for an official if ever a doubt. My player and I learned that lesson at final stage of Q School a couple years ago. Fortunately her 2 shot penalty did not cost her her LPGA card.

    1. Wow. How unfortunate. It seems unfair that she now has to wait another year because of someone else's mistake.

  5. Yeah, assuming the account it accurate (nobody has reported on it yet from what I have seen) it seems the rules officials could have made an exception in that case.

  6. Can anyone confirm that Ju Young Park is Hee Young Park's little sister?
