The ADT Championship begins in two days

Beginning today I will in attendance at the LPGA Tour’s year ending ADT Championship. It is being played at Trump International in West Palm Beach Florida. Play begins Thursday with a field of 32 top women golfers. After two rounds, the field is cut to the low sixteen and scores are reset. After Saturday’s play, the field is cut to the final eight and scores reset again. Playoffs will occur at the end of play Friday and Saturday if needed. On Sunday the final round is played, with the winner getting a cool 1 million dollars. The biggest first prize in women’s golf.

Last year’s winner was Julieta Granada from Paraguay. Julieta edging Lorena Ochoa by two shots.

Julieta isn’t in this year’s tournament. Player of the year Lorena Ochoa heads a field that includes Christie Kerr, Suzann Pettersen, Juli Inkster, Se Ri Pak, Morgan Pressel, Annika Sorenstam, and Karrie Webb among others.

I’ve been in attendance at every ADT since 2003. The tournament has always had close finishes and 2007 shouldn’t be any different.
