|Karrie Webb holds up her 2014 championship trophy|
This will be tournament #3 of 33 official tournaments on the 2015 LPGA schedule.
Here are the key details:
Course: The Royal Melbourne Golf Club
Location: Melbourne, Austrailia
Defending Champion: Karrie Webb
Winning Score: 71-69-68-68 = 276 (-12)
Final Field: 156 players
Par: 38/35 = 73
My strength of field rating is a weak 48%. Just 25 of the top 50 players on the LPGA Priority List, and 11 of the top 25 players from the Rolex Rankings, will be teeing it up. Among the missing this week include: Stacy Lewis, Inbee Park, Michelle Wie, Azahara Munoz, Anna Nordqvist, Suzann Pettersen, Lexi Thompson, Sei Young Kim, Hyo-Joo Kim, Mirim Lee, Cristie Kerr, Brittany Lincicome, Paula Creamer, and Lizette Salas.
Here are the pairings for round 2:

Here are my Pak Picker Picks for this week's tournament:
1- Jessica Korda
2- Lydia Ko
3- Karrie Webb
4- Minjee Lee
5- Ariya Jutanugarn
6- Ha Na Jang
7- Shanshan Feng
8- So Yeon Ryu

My very crafty picking last week landed me in 4th place. I am currently 3rd in the standings in a field of 24 players.
In spite of the week off, Brittany Lincicome was the big mover in the Rolex Rankings. She jumped up from #18 to #15 this week.
