News Flash: Momoko Ueda in the AXA Ladies
I've been wondering why Momoko Ueda is not listed in the field for the Canadian Women's Open next week and I just found one key piece of the puzzle that is her 2008 schedule. She's going to be playing in her 3rd JLPGA event of the season in the AXA Ladies this week. From what I can tell, this looks like a 1-shot deal, but with the LPGA's limited schedule in August and September and the JLPGA's packed one through November (including 3 of their 4 majors), and no clear heir apparent dominating the JLPGA as of yet, I wonder if she's interested in seeing how high up the money list she can climb. She's currently #24! More on the globe-trotting possibilities for many of the world's best women golfers in a few days.
