This Week's Trivia Question:  (In case you missed it earlier this week)

This is a tough one! (If you get this you are bordering on LPGA genius)

It is not unusual (in fact it is quite common) for a player to be ranked in the top 75 of the LPGA Priority List but not in the top 75 of the Rolex Rankings. Can you name the only 2 LPGA players that are currently ranked in the top 75 of the Rolex Rankings, but are not in the top 75 of the LPGA Priority List?
