This is it. The last individual event of the 2007 season on the LPGA. 32 cut to 16 cut to 8 playing the final 18 holes for one million dollars. Reality tv at its best. Who among those who qualified will still be playing on Saturday? On Sunday? Will Ochoa, Pettersen, and Creamer extend their lead on their closest competitors? Will Mi Hyun Kim, Jeong Jang, Seon Hwa Lee, Jee Young Lee, and Angela Park close the gap? Will Annika Sorenstam, Maria Hjorth, and Catriona Matthew challenge Pettersen for the title of top European LPGAer in 2008? Will Cristie Kerr, Se Ri Pak, Morgan Pressel, Karrie Webb, Ai Miyazato, and Brittany Lincicome find their games in time? Or will a relative dark horse pull a Julieta Granada this year?
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 November 12 and November 19. 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!
In which Bill Jempty empties his reporter's notebook, Hound Dog offers his final reflections and ranks the LPGA's top 30 for the last time this year, and I play tournament organizer.
In which Bill covers the final round of the ADT Championship at Outside the Beltway, Hound Dog surveys the round and gives the key play-by-play, and Mulligan Stu looks back on Karrie Webb's weird season.
In which Bill covers the third round at Outside the Beltway, Hound Dog surveys the round and gives the key play-by-play, and I identify the eggs that must be broken to make a Sunday omelette.
In which Bill covers the second round at Outside the Beltway, Hound Dog offers his own overview, I survey the carnage that goes into making a Sweet 16, and Mulligan Stu compares Annika's only winless seasons--her first and latest.
In which Bill covers the first round at Outside the Beltway (the highlight for me is his piece on co-leader Christina Kim) and Hound Dog offers his own overview.
In which Bill really begins to hit his stride, Hound Dog muses on some of the gaps Bill went into more detail on in the 2008 LPGA schedule, and Mulligan Stu adds his two cents on the schedule and the Wendy's 3-Tour Challenge.
In which Bill Jempty of The Florida Masochist begins his coverage of the ADT as a journalist from Outside the Beltway. He'll be there all week, so we should actually see some good reporting this year. Let's see if he can beat out the Palm Beach Post. His first post sets the table, in what strikes me in a less interesting way than Hound Dog's tournament preview, but more interesting than Kori Ellis's over at Green Posse.
In which I praise women's golf and extol the ADT Championship.
