*- 9 of today’s 16 qualifiers are international players. Countries represented are- Mexico, Sweden, Norway, South Korea, Japan, Australia, and Scotland.
*- 3 of last year’s top four contenders for Rookie of the year, are playing this weekend. 2006 ROY Seon Hwa Lee, Morgan Pressel, and Ai Miyazato. On the other hand no 2007 Rookie made it to today’s round.
Last year Seon Hwa upstaged the much more heralded Miyazato and Pressel. Can Ai or Morgan turn the tables at this week’s ADT?
*- Angela Stanford broke her putter yesterday after throwing the club in a moment of frustration on the 1st hole. She finished the round using either a sand wedge or 3-wood as a putter.
*- One of the final 16 is Sarah Lee. Interesting name, for Jung Yeon while South Korean was born in England. I suppose that’s where her nickname came from. Either that, or it could be the fact there are too other Lees with the initials JY on the LPGA Tour.
I certainly have a question if Sarah appears in the press tent this weekend.
*- Out of the final 16 only Sarah Lee and Ai Miyazato haven’t won on the LPGA Tour before. Sophie Gustafson has the longest dry spell of any former winner. Her last triumph was the 2003 Samsung World Championship.
*- After today’s final round is completed, the field will be cut again to the low eight. As happened yesterday, holes 17 and 18 will be used for any playoff.
*- Weather for today appears to be about the same as yesterday. Sunny but cool(Well for South Florida). At present there is little if any wind.
