Less Than Three Weeks Until the Asian Swing
I know, I know, I shouldn't look past the Long Drugs and the Samsung the next two weeks, but I'm really really really looking forward to the fourth Mostly Harmless Event which focuses on the Asian swing of the LPGA. With KLPGA and JLPGA players competing well on the European swing and with players like Ji-Yai Shin, Eun-Hee Ji, Mi-Jeong Jeon, Momoko Ueda, Sakura Yokomine, and now Shinobu Moromizato racking up big wins this year on their respective tours, it'll be fascinating to see how the slumping Ai Miyazato and top LPGA Korean stars like Se Ri Pak, Mi Hyun Kim, Seon Hwa Lee, Jee Young Lee, Jeong Jang, and new mom Hee-Won Han measure up against their compatriots (not to mention diasporic Koreans like Angela Park and Christina Kim). The next month and a half will feature the top 50 (or fewer) LPGAers going head-to-head in high stakes and high status events, so here's hoping that the PGA-obsessed golf bloggers will pay attention and help draw attention to the best tour in the world. And that more young Japanese stars make like Ai-chan and try to make it big on the LPGA.
