Lorena Ochoa Invitational Preview/Predictions/Pairings

Except for a couple of sponsor's exemptions, the field at the Lorena Ochoa Invitational is fantastic. Besides the reunion of the top women's golfers in the world (minus Ji-Yai Shin), there's also the final field for next week's winner-takes-one-million-dollars ADT Championship to be determined. Nicole Castrale and Meena Lee will be trying to hold off Christina Kim, Sophie Gustafson, Sun Young Yoo, and Jane Park for the last two 2nd-half-money-list spots. Kim and Gustafson lead the race for the last 2 wild card spots, so even if they don't pass Castrale and Lee, all they have to do is stay ahead of Yoo and Park. But if Brittany Lang or Teresa Lu were to win, they could leapfrog these players and join the ADT field.

So who are my picks in this week's Pakpicker?

1. Ochoa
2. Creamer
3. Lee Jee Young
4. Hull
5. Lang
6. Stanford
7. Sorenstam
8. Kerr
9. Pettersen
10. Kung
11. Diaz
12. Tseng

Alts: Kim In-Kyung, Kim Song-Hee, Kim Christina

The pairings for this event are simply incredible. Personally, I'd be really torn as to which group to follow. Probably I'd try to position myself between the following pair of pairings:

Start Time: 11:32 AM
In-Kyung Kim
Jeong Jang
Jane Park

Start Time: 11:43 AM
Na Yeon Choi
Seon Hwa Lee
Laura Diaz

But that's just me. What say you?
