Corona Championship Pairings

Well, whether or not they'll end up having the weakest field of the year, the Corona Championship tournament organizers have set up their pairings like this thing is going to be televised. Here are the prime-time pairings, which give some indication of whom the tournament organizers think have the best chance to win the event and/or draw the most TV viewers during Masters week.

Off the front in the early afternoon Thursday:

Start Time: 12:15 PM
Candy Hannemann
Amy Yang
Ji Young Oh

Start Time: 12:26 PM
Sophie Gustafson
Sun Young Yoo
Minea Blomqvist

Start Time: 12:37 PM
Nicole Perrot
Allison Fouch
Virada Nirapathpongporn

Start Time: 12:48 PM
Johanna Head
Liz Janangelo
Brittany Lincicome

And off the back in the late morning Thursday:

Start Time: 8:40 AM
Shanshan Feng
Janice Moodie
Soo-Yun Kang

Start Time: 8:51 AM
Alena Sharp
Dina Ammaccapane
Sarah Kemp

Start Time: 9:02 AM
Hee-Won Han
Jill McGill
Moira Dunn

Start Time: 9:13 AM
Lorena Ochoa
Carin Koch
Silvia Cavalleri

They'll reverse positions Friday, as usual for a 72-hole event.

Very cool that Moira gets to play with Han and McGill for two rounds. The only other super-cool pairing is Inbee Park/Na Yeon Choi off #1 at 8:51 am, but I'll be curious to see how the less-heralded players in the Young Gun generation (classes of '06, '07, and '08) play this week.
