  1. In my listing of first time winners, I left out Pajaree Anannarukarn
  2. After the Covid shortened 2020 LPGA season in which only 18 tournaments were played, the majority of those without fans, the LPGA came roaring back in 2021. Twenty-nine tournaments were played in all, including all five major championships. Fans were able to come back out and see their favorite players once again, and they put on quite a show. womensgolf.com/2021-lpga-season-wrapup
  3. The LPGA has now completeds about 2/3 of its 2021. There have been many surprise performances, and also some major disappointments. womensgolf.com/lpga-surprises-and-disappointments
  4. We now have our first 2 X winner this year in Nelly Korda
  5. This is worth revisiting again...Nelly's win today is her fifth....no other second sister has more than 1
  6. It has been an interesting year so far on the LPGA. Catch up on all the current news, events, and stats www.womensgolf.com/as-the-lpga-world-turns-june-2021
  7. Very strangely, they ate teeing off on holes 1 and 9 today (not 10).
  8. The 76th playing of the U.S. Women's Open will be played this week. Here is my preview of this major tournament: www.womensgolf.com/2021-us-womens-open-preview
  9. Three sets of sisters have won LPGA tournaments. Here is why Jessica and Nelly Korda are the standout siblings. www.womensgolf.com/the-kordas
  10. Brittany has a history of having a good first round....unfortunatly the last few years she has had trouble maintaining it. Hopefully that pattern will change.
  11. How good are the 2021 LPGA rookies? How do they stack up when compared to previous years? www.womensgolf.com/2021-lpga-rookies
  12. I have been asked many times how the LPGA constructs their field lists every week. In most cases they use the LPGA Priority List. Here is the brand new 2021 LPGA Priority List (with a brief explanation of how they put their weekly fields together). www.womensgolf.com/2021-lpga-priority-list
  13. I agree with you as regards to the two courses. It couldn't be helped though because you couldn't ge 156 players around one course in December before darkness.
  14. The U.S. Women's Open Championship in December? Yes, and it is being played this week! For full story and tournament details: www.womensgolf.com/2020-u-s-womens-open-preview

  16. It has been a very unusual LPGA season so far to say the least. Due to the pandemic there were four tournaments played early in the year, and then play was halted for five months. Play finally resumed on the last day of July, but fans were not allowed to attend. Nine more tournaments have now been played, so thirteen tournaments are now in the books. The player results of these thirteen tournaments have been treated by the Rolex Women’s Golf World Rankings as any other results would have been treated in any normal year. Thirteen tournaments may not sound like a lot, but it has resulted in major changes in the Rolex Rankings in 2020. Changes that will have a direct affect as to what players will qualify for both the 2021 Olympic and Solheim Cup teams.

  17. It took a lot longer than we originally expected, but the LPGA has completed its first ten tournaments on the abbreviated 2020 schedule. For full story: www.womensgolf.com/lpga-tournaments-2020-season
  18. Ko needs to take control of her life both on the course and off. She can't seem to stand over a shot without a long conversation with her caddy. Her mother makes all her other decisions.
  19. Thanks for the compliments guys. I am glad you all enjoy reading stuff like this. I too wonder what long term affect this will have on her career after this meltdown.
  20. A lot has happened on the LPGA the past few weeks. Here is a recap of some of the major stories: www.womensgolf.com/as-the-lpga-world-turns
  21. We knew the LPGA would restart the season in ohio. What we didn't know is that it would be with a brand new tournament at the famed Inverness Club. For complete story: www.womensgolf.com/lpga-update-inverness
  22. The governor of Ohio announced todat that fans will be allowed to attend the event!
