Take Your Blog to the Course IV: The Asian Swing

Even though the Asian Swing won't be on tv in the U.S., it's a much more significant part of the LPGA season than the PGA's fall finish. Most of the best LPGAers are playing in the limited-field events in Korea, Thailand, and Japan the next three weeks, where they'll be facing off against the top golfers in Asia. Can Suzann Pettersen close the money gap between her and Lorena Ochoa enough in the next month to have a chance to steal the money title from her by winning the $1M prize at the ADT Championship? Can other top women golfers join Ochoa and Pettersen as multiple winners this year on the LPGA Tour, or will Super Sophs Jee Young Lee and Ai Miyazato join the ranks of the 2007 Rolex First-Time Winners? If KLPGA stars like Ji-Yai Shin, Eun-Hee Ji, or Sun Ju Ahn or JLPGA stars like Momoko Ueda, Sakura Yokomine, or Shinobu Moromizato win one of these events, will they join the LPGA in 2008?

As with our previous take your blog to the course events, I'll post here most any link or submission I receive at the[underscore]constructivist18[at]yahoo[dot]com between October 18 and November 5. The purpose remains to encourage those who don't normally blog or LPGA blog to give it a shot, as well as highlight the work of regular LPGA golf writers and bloggers. So start submitting!

I was bemused at the obsessive coverage while I was there in Japan. I'm all Prince-d out, and hope he just enjoys the rest of his adolescence, unlike M------- W--....
