A lot has changed since April's Best of the LPGA ranking: a new commissioner, a new strategy (at least on the domestic front), and a new Big 6 on the LPGA. Now that Hound Dog's new Top 70 has just come out, it's time to mix in results from this week's Rolex Rankings, Golfweek/Sagarin Performance Index, and LPGA Official Money List, stir, bake, cool, and voila! I present Mostly Harmless's latest Best of the LPGA ranking. It goes well with yesterday's look at 6 generations' worth of top LPGA careers, don't you think?
This is the 1st time since I began doing these rankings that I can confidently state that the world #1's chase pack has her in sight and in their sights. Here's the LPGA's Big 6 I was referring to above.
1. Lorena Ochoa: #6 money ($768.3K), #1 RR (12.61), #1 GSPI (68.98), #1 HD. Ochoa is still the world #1 by a sizable margin, but so far this season Ji-Yai Shin beat her to a million dollars, Cristie Kerr has pulled slightly ahead of her in scoring average, and Michelle Wie is making more birdies per round than she has been. 9 players are going under par with more regularity. 5 players have more rounds in the 60s. She's no longer one of the very best on tour off the tee. And her putting is nowhere near what it was in 2006 and 2007. So not only is her stranglehold on the Player of the Year award loosening, but if any of the Big 6 actually were to get hot in the 2nd half of the season and she continued to struggle, we could well have a new #1 before it's over, as well.
2. Ji-Yai Shin: #1 money ($1.08M), #3 RR (8.27), #4 GSPI (69.44), #2 HD. Shin is the winningest player on the LPGA and in the world of women's golf over the past calendar year. In her short time competing on tour, she's racked up as many wins and majors as Suzann Pettersen. And she's just getting started. I wonder if she'll take a rest after the Women's British Open, or head over to the JLPGA, where she's a member by virtue of her 2 wins on that tour last season? Last season she played in almost 40 events around the world!
3. Cristie Kerr: #2 money ($1.04M), #4 RR (7.76), #2 GSPI (69.22), #3 HD. Kerr is #1 in the Player of the Year race, 9 points up on Shin, and less than $40K behind her on the money list. After the active Hall of Famers (Inkster, Webb, Pak, Ochoa), she has the most career wins on tour. And while she has let 2 golden opportunities to win a major slip through her fingers already this season, she's been the most consistently excellent of anyone on tour over the past calendar year. In fact, you have to go back to 2003 to find a year when she failed to win a million dollars or more on tour. She's already done it this season, her 6th in a row, a feat only Ochoa can match (Paula Creamer and Jeong Jang are going for their 5th in a row).
4. Ya Ni Tseng: #4 money ($875.5K), #2 RR (9.20), #9 GSPI (69.88), #4 HD. Last week's missed cut at the U.S. Women's Open was only the 2nd of Tseng's career on tour. She's averaging 3 top 20s out of every 4 starts and has put herself in contention close to a dozen times. So it's no wonder she finally broke through for her 2nd career victory earlier this season. She's the closest to Ochoa in the Rolex Rankings, the closest to Kerr in total birdies, and the longest driver on tour. Yet she's stuck at #4 on this list for the 2nd time in a row. What'll move her up? More wins!
5. Paula Creamer: #8 money ($667.6K), #5 RR (7.57), #3 GSPI (69.26), #5 HD. Creamer hasn't gotten a win yet this season, but she's had the most physical problems to deal with among the Big 6, from her early-season intestinal difficulties to her recent thumb injury. The layoff couldn't have come at a better time for her, as she struggled to hit fairways and greens until the final round of the Open, losing her huge lead in GIR this season in the process (from that event alone, she dropped from hitting close to 80% of her greens to just over 75%--not good). Still, I'm looking for her to get hot in the 2nd half of the season.
6. Suzann Pettersen: #7 money ($732.9K), #6 RR (6.86), #5 GSPI (69.53), #7 HD. Yes, Pettersen hasn't won since that burst at the end of 2007, but in the intervening years she's convinced me that she's really made a quantum leap. Her scoring average is down and birdie rate up from last season and she's well on pace to get her 3rd straight million-dollar year. She seems fully recovered from the virus that forced her out of the LPGA Championship and poised for a great European swing.
There are 2 players itching to turn the Big 6 into a Big 8, but I'm still not convinced that they're not just riding hot streaks. Have they really made the quantum leap to contend week in and week out for wins and top 10s? Are they really capable of consistently grinding out top 20s without their A game?
7. Angela Stanford: #9 money ($631.0K), #7 RR (6.35), #7 GSPI (69.69), #6 HD. Stanford has already won once this season and is a threat to do it again every time she tees it up. Yes, she missed the cut at the Open, but she's dealing with a lot right now, what with her mom being diagnosed with breast cancer and all. She's consistently been one of the best off the tee on tour, but has improved all aspcts of her game in the past year or so, so it's no surprise that she leads the tour in percentage of rounds under par, is behind only Kerr in top 10 rate, and is a legitimate contender for the Vare Trophy (for lowest scoring average) this season.
8. In-Kyung Kim: #3 money ($957.7K), #8 RR (6.04), #8 GSPI (69.78), #8 HD. That quantum leap that I predicted for Kim before the start of the season may just have arrived. She's averaging as many birdies per round as Ochoa, is right behind Creamer in greens in regulation, and ranks among the game's elite in just about every other performance measure. She's averaging just over 250 yards off the tee, so it's not like she's bunting it around, either. Kim was the player I was rooting for to win the Open (what with Moira Dunn not entered, Seon Hwa Lee withdrawing, and Ai Miyazato out of contention), but how well she plays in the European swing will determine whether she succeeds Angela Park as the best player in her rookie class or whether Open champion Eun-Hee Ji will regain the top spot.
Stanford and Kim have put a little bit of distance between themselves and the large group with a top 10 in at most 2 of the 4 systems and/or top 20s in at least 3 of the 4.
9. Eun-Hee Ji: #5 money ($832.9K), #11 RR (4.88), #15 GSPI (70.43), #9 HD. Speaking of Ji, she's in a great position to avoid the Open curse that struck fellow Junior Mint Inbee Park (which she's only just recently started recovering from). She's a much more accurate driver than Park ever has been and a much more consistent player overall. She's won in different ways, too--going low at the Wegmans and chasing Pettersen down, while grinding it out at Saucon Valley and chasing Kerr down. There's no reason she can't keep winning. If she makes the cut at Evian, she'll cross the $2M barrier in career winnings in only her 47th start on tour. That puts her in the company of players like Paula Creamer, Seon Hwa Lee, and Ya Ni Tseng (Na Yeon Choi will have to come on strong to join them). So enough of the comparisons to Birdie Kim and Hilary Lunke already, ok?
10. Song-Hee Kim: #11 money ($576.4K), #12 RR (4.60), #12 GSPI (70.30), #10 HD. Among those on tour without a win as an LPGA member, nobody's playing better lately than Kim. This Junior Mint has been learning how to put herself in contention in the big leagues after dominating the Futures Tour. She's among the very best putters out there and is averaging close to 260 yards off the tee, so it's no surprise she's threatening to finish the season averaging more than 4 birdies per round.
11. Na Yeon Choi: #14 money ($474.5K), #15 RR (3.95), #10 GSPI (70.15), #11 HD. With a 42-event made-cut streak which dates back to the beginning of her rookie season last year, this Super Soph is at the top of my list of players due to break through for her 1st LPGA member win. I saw her play a few holes at the Wegmans and came away impressed. She's definitely among the best ball-strikers on tour. What's held her back last year and this one is her putting--that 1.83 PPGIR rate needs to go down and fast if she wants to move up this list. Still, she's on pace for her 2nd-straight million dollar season.
12. Michelle Wie: #17 money ($435.2K), #28 RR (3.09), #6 GSPI (69.60), #14 HD. I'm neither a Wie fanatic nor a Wie-basher, so believe me when I tell you that her comeback is for real. I had predicted that Shin, Stacy Lewis, and Shiho Oyama would have better rookie seasons, but Wie has already exceeded my expectations by a mile. Her ability to bounce back from a disappointing LPGA Championship and disastrous final 9 in Open qualifying with a top 10 at the Wegmans and a top 3 at the Farr, on courses that I didn't think suited her game, was the tipping point for me. I can't believe I'm about to say this, but I really think she's ready to win on the LPGA. Let's see how she handles the pressure of trying to qualify for the Solheim Cup (or at least play well enough at Evian and the WBO to justify a captain's pick).
13. Ai Miyazato: #18 money ($433.9K), #27 RR (3.16), #17 GSPI (70.55), #13 HD. OK, Ai-chan is my favorite player, but I pretty much nailed my preseason prediction that she'd return to her rookie form in this, her 4th season as an LPGA member. She is back to driving the ball and making birdies like the Ai-chan of old, even though she hasn't had a fantastic year on the greens. If she can get her putter going and put together 4 good rounds in a row, she may well be the 1st among Kim, Choi, and Wie to get that Rolex for being a 1st-time winner on tour.
14. Karrie Webb: #19 money ($422.5K), #9 RR (5.00), #13 GSPI (70.34), #12 HD. She's cooled off from a hot start and will have to play better--and soon--to remain the Head Aussie in Charge on the LPGA. That still doesn't mean she can't win again any time she tees it up.
15. Lindsey Wright: #10 money ($615.7K), #13 RR (4.20), #35 GSPI (71.26), #15 HD. She's fully recovered from the injuries that sabotaged the 2nd half of last season and ready to contend with regularity again--and maybe even get that 1st win.
16. Kristy McPherson: #13 money ($533.0K), #18 RR (3.71), #30 GSPI (71.10), #19 HD. I was sad to see McPherson fade on Open weekend, but I'm convinced she's made a quantum leap. I'm certain she has more upside than Ji Young Oh, a fellow Junior Mint who already has 2 LPGA wins, so don't be surprised to see her in the winner's circle soon.
17. Anna Nordqvist: #20 money ($387.4K), #20 RR (3.50), #11 GSPI (70.29), #20 HD. Yes, she won the LPGA Championship and hasn't missed a cut in her 8 starts as an LPGA member, and she did it all while having to piece together a schedule and decide how often to play on the LET (in whose Q-School she was the medalist in the off-season). But that win is her only LPGA top 10. The problem has been her iron play; she hits a lot of fairways (over 76% of 'em) but not a lot of greens (only 66%). For a precision player like her, that just doesn't cut it on the LPGA. Right now she's benefitting from that 1 great week in winnings and rankings, but she'll need to improve a lot just to remain this high in my next ranking.
18. Helen Alfredsson: #38 money ($215.5K), #10 RR (4.92), #26 GSPI (70.99), #25 HD. She's hanging on to her status in this grouping thanks to the Rolex Ranking's 104-week span; although she's been able to put together the occasional brilliant round, she hasn't been able to sustain that level of play for very long this season. Still, she's healthy and having a blast, so there's no reason she can't get hot and stay hot long enough to move up this ranking again.
Because HD and the GSPI did it, I'm including Annika Sorenstam in my system until she drops out of it. Last time, she was still in the lead chase pack. Now, she's part of the huge group with at most 2 top 20s and/or at least 3 top 30s:
19. Seon Hwa Lee: #26 money ($280.6K), #16 RR (3.92), #25 GSPI (70.84), #16 HD. Lee is one of my favorite players, so I was particularly concerned to find out that her WD from the Open was due to a back injury. (Why? Just ask Natalie Gulbis or Jane Park!) Just as it seemed her game was rounding into form (she played great at the Farr), too. Like Nordqvist, it's been her iron play that's been the culprit. When you're finding more than 4 out of every 5 fairways, you should be hitting more than 2 of every 3 greens. She'll need to recover from her injury and address that problem quickly if she wants to get her 3rd-straight million-dollar season and return to the ranks of the game's elite. There's no time like the Evian to make a statement!
20. Katherine Hull: #22 money ($348.7K), #17 RR (3.82), #16 GSPI (70.55), #22 HD. One of the hottest players in the world at the end of last season and start of this one has cooled off; there's no single culprit that stands out, though I suspect that it starts from her driving not being as on and extends to every facet of her game.
21. Ji Young Oh: #16 money ($445.9K), #24 RR (3.26), #37 GSPI (71.36), #18 HD. Oh's been in serious contention twice and won both times, so she knows how to close the deal. But I can't help but feel she's too inconsistent to stay this high on the list next time around.
22. Candie Kung: #15 money ($459.6K), #14 RR (4.15), #45 GSPI (71.78), #32 HD. If Kung had won the Open, she would have matched Pettersen and Shin in wins and majors and come close to matching Stanford in career winings. As it is, she still has a great chance to to beat Pettersen, Stanford, Sophie Gustafson, Wendy Ward, Maria Hjorth, and Carin Koch to the $5M mark in career winnings. Wonder when she'll be recognized as one of the top Asian American golfers on tour (she's a naturalized U.S. citizen)?
23. Brittany Lincicome: #12 money ($534.8K), #19 RR (3.57), #121 GSPI (73.02), #26 HD. I wsn't convinced by her stirring victory at the Kraft Nabisco Championship that she was out of her slump, but her tenacity at the Open impressed me. She's still wildly inconsistent, but with 3 wins and a major to her name, she's passed Meena Lee to be the 2nd-best player in her rookie class (to Paula Creamer, who doesn't yet have a major) and is closing on Stacy Prammanasudh for the #5 spot in her generation. She bombs it out there like Pettersen, Tseng, Jee Young Lee, Vicky Hurst, and Wie, but is even less accurate than they are. If she ever seriously improved on her 55% fairways rate, she'd start moving up these rankings again--and fast.
24. Brittany Lang: #24 money ($307.6K), #31 RR (2.81), #21 GSPI (70.75), #17 HD. Her game has fallen off a bit in the summer, but I'm still high on her to be the 1st golfer to break the Duke curse. She has a Stanford/Kerr-quality long game, so it's just a matter of working on her touch.
25. Jee Young Lee: #29 money ($263.6K), #26 RR (3.16), #24 GSPI (70.82), #21 HD. Her game has fallen off a lot since earlier in the season and I'm worried at her WD from the Open, not to mention shocked that she didn't qualify for Evian (unless, that is, she's 1 of 10 players who don't appear on their profiles page).
26. Sun Young Yoo: #28 money ($270.0K), #39 RR (2.52), #28 GSPI (71.03), #23 HD. She's been hitting it about 260 off the tee and finding the fairway about 75% of the time this season, so with ball-striking stats comparable to Kristy McPherson, Song-Hee Kim, and Ai Miyazato, it's no surprise she's having as good a season as the Senior Standout fightin' Lees and hanging out in the MH top 25 for the past 2 rankings.
27. Hee-Won Han: #35 money ($238.5K), #22 RR (3.30), #29 GSPI (71.05), #27 HD. Han's 2009's been kind of blah, but she's been hanging in there and hanging around, despite not even hitting 66% of her greens in regulation. At 1.75 putts per GIR, she would benefit a lot from giving herself more birdie chances. 3.28 birdies per round is OK, but far below her peaks in 2004 and 2006, when she was threatening to average 3.70. I haven't been able to determine if her toddler son is travelling with her or not, but if so, she may not have time to hone her iron game.
28. Morgan Pressel: #23 money ($318.6K), #25 RR (3.26), #39 GSPI (71.50), #24 HD. As I predicted last ranking, Pressel bottomed out at #40 and is back on the upswing. If she hadn't fallen apart in the rain on the back at the Wegmans and not fallen victim to a great playoff putt by Eunjung Yi at the Farr, she would have moved up even faster. She's got everything going again and seems to have emerged from her swing transition hitting the ball farther withut having sacrificed much if any accuracy. If she continues to putt as well as she has been lately, watch out for her to do more than contend.
29. Natalie Gulbis: #37 money ($225.8K), #41 RR (2.47), #18 GSPI (70.60), #28 HD. Gulbis is one of the best putters on tour and she's healthy again, so it's no surprise she's jumped from #50 last ranking. But she'll need to start hitting more than 2 out of every 3 greens to keep moving up this list as quickly as she has been. Her 3.62 birdies per round rate could skyrocket if she were giving herself a couple of more birdie chances per round.
30. Annika Sorenstam: n.r. money (she's at least on extended maternity leave and most likely retired from the LPGA), n.r. RR (she was removed from their rankings at her request), #19 GSPI (70.70), #39 HD. She'll drop out of HD's next ranking, when he takes only this season's results into account, so this is the last time she'll be showing up in the Best of the LPGA ranking here, too--barring a decision to come back as a player and not just as a consultant, that is, the possibility of which is looking ever more remote to me.
A large number of players have at most 2 top 30s and/or at least 3 top 40s:
31. Hee Young Park: #21 money ($361.3K), #40 RR (2.50), #32 GSPI (71.19), #30 HD. I've always seen her as a player who could blow up--in either a good way or a bad way--but her steadiness at the Open impressed me. Hopefully this will be the start of better things to come for this Super Soph.
32. Wendy Ward: #31 money ($252.8K), #55 RR (1.91), #27 GSPI (71.02), #29 HD. This vet is on fire (3.67 birdies per round) and shows no signs of letting up.
33. Nicole Castrale: #24 money ($241.9K), #38 RR (2.52), #44 GSPI (71.78), #31 HD. Castrale is playing really good golf heading into the Solheim Cup, so I expect to see her GIR and birdie rates continuing to improve in the 2nd half of the season. No need for a captain's pick this time around.
34. Juli Inkster: #45 money ($160.1K), #37 RR (2.55), #22 GSPI (70.77), #33 HD. Unfortunately, Inkster will most likely need one. Fortunately, I think she'll get it. As for what Beth Daniel thinks.... Well, she could go with another vet like Ward, but my guess is that Wie will continue to outplay her on the European swing and will either pass Gulbis or earn the 2nd pick. Tough luck for Ward either way--I can't see Daniel not picking Gulbis if she can't hold on to that last spot. And she certainly won't pass up a Hall of Famer like Inkster.
35. Se Ri Pak: #25 money ($291.3K), #34 RR (2.75), #61 GSPI (71.94), #34 HD. Despite missing the cut at the Open, this Hall of Famer is making a big move, all the way from #51 last ranking. She's still not putting up HOF numbers, but if she ever gets her game synchronized, career win #25 isn't far away.
36. Angela Park: #33 money ($246.3K), #30 RR (2.91), #43 GSPI (71.76), #48 HD. She's fallen off a cliff lately. Is she playing hurt? Hopefully she'll be in better shape for Evian.
37. Momoko Ueda: #48 money ($137.9K), #36 RR (2.62), #31 GSPI (71.13), #36 HD. Ueda has been struggling lately but continues working hard on her game--I saw her on the range Sunday at the Wegmans, despite missing the cut there--so it was a big deal that she made the cut at the Open. Let's see if she can build some more confidence on the European swing and head into the JLPGA in August with some momentum. With the possibility of Shin, both Miyazatos, Oyama, and Ueda joining the JLPGA's finest for an extended stretch, the run-up to the Konica Minolta Cup will be intense. I wonder if any of them will book a flight to Japan from Calgary (after the Canadian Women's Open) to compete in it.
38. Pat Hurst: #27 money ($280.6K), #51 RR (2.08), #83 GSPI (72.46), #38 HD. Hasn't done much since her surprise win, but on track to pass Lorie Kane by the end of the season and become the #3 player in her generation, behind Sorenstam and Webb. Unfortunately, I don't think she's played well enough lately to beat out Inkster, Wie/Gulbis, or Ward for the last captain's pick and her 6th Solheim Cup, but who knows? She has a pretty darn good match-play record.
39. Eunjung Yi: #30 money ($258.9K), #43 RR (2.38), #99 GSPI (72.69), #49 HD. Talk about surprise wins--not only did she go low at the Farr, but she also bounced back from her only bad stretch of golf that week to beat Pressel in a playoff. That win should move her into the top 7 among the Super Sophs when I rank them in August.
40. Jeong Jang: #150 money (just back from wrist surgery with $3.1K), #29 RR (3.00), #36 GSPI (71.34), #69 HD. Jang will need a miracle to get her 5th-straight million-dollar season on the LPGA, but making the cut on the European swing is a more realistic goal after her wrist surgery.
A large number of players have at most 2 top 40s and/or at least 3 top 50s:
41. Mika Miyazato: #39 money ($212.0K), #63 RR (1.66), #38 GSPI (71.45), #42 HD. This Miyazato's having the 4th-best season in a packed rookie class, so I'm glad to see Evian inviting her to compete with the world's best next week.
42. Stacy Lewis: #40 money ($183.4K), #52 RR (2.05), #59 GSPI (71.88), #37 HD. Off to a slow start by the high standards she set at LPGA Q-School last year, Lewis has still shown plenty of promise. Wonder what she'll do after the WBO? Unless she wins it, there's no way she'll be playing in the Solheim Cup this year.
43. Meaghan Francella: #36 money ($232.2K), #73 RR (1.39), #49 GSPI (71.80), #40 HD. It's great to see this Senior Standout (and NYer!) making such a great comeback.
44. Amy Yang: #46 money ($147.1K), #59 RR (1.74), #52 GSPI (71.83), #35 HD. I'm still waiting for Yang to make that In-Kyung Kim-like quantum leap this season. No time like the European swing for this 3-time LET winner.
45. Inbee Park: #55 money ($119.9K), #33 RR (2.76), #96 GSPI (72.62), #46 HD. Back from the brink and playing good golf, as she seems to do every summer, expect to see Park climbing these rankings next time around.
46. Teresa Lu: #42 money ($174.6K), #58 RR (1.81), #50 GSPI (71.83), #44 HD. This Senior Standout has stalled a bit of late. Having failed to qualify for the Evian Masters (unless she's just not listed in the field yet), she'll have to wait a bit for her next chance to cross the $1M mark in career winnings.
47. Michelle Redman: #57 money ($105.5K), #67 RR (1.52), #40 GSPI (71.61), #57 HD. Another veteran who just keeps playing solid golf.
48. Kyeong Bae: #32 money ($248.2K), #77 RR (1.36), #123 GSPI (73.05), #45 HD. Another Senior Standout making a huge comeback, Bae just became the 17th Young Gun to join the Million Dollar Club.
49. Maria Hjorth: #111 money (just back from maternity leave with $30.7K), #32 RR (2.77), #58 GSPI (71.88), #55 HD. Like Jang, it's going to take Hjorth a little while to get up to LPGA speed again.
There's a huge group with at most 2 top 50s and/or at least 3 top 60s:
50. Jimin Kang: #44 money ($163.3K), #75 RR (1.37), #72 GSPI (72.19), #47 HD.
51. Vicky Hurst: #50 money ($134.1K), #92 RR (1.00), #46 GSPI (71.79), #52 HD.
52. Christina Kim: #51 money ($131.7K), #50 RR (2.09), #57 GSPI (71.86), #50 HD.
53. Jane Park: #52 money ($129.8K), #53 RR (1.99), #60 GSPI (71.90), #43 HD.
54. Shanshan Feng: #58 money ($105.5K), #60 RR (1.74), #53 GSPI (71.84), #65 HD.
55. Sandra Gal: #43 money ($167.0K), #70 RR (1.47), #64 GSPI (72.07), #51 HD.
56. Karen Stupples: #61 money (despite having to have an emergency appendectomy, she has $94.3K), #45 RR (2.33), #66 GSPI (72.08), #61 HD.
57. Mi Hyun Kim: #67 money ($88.6K), #56 RR (1.86), #73 GSPI (72.25), #41 HD.
58. Sophie Gustafson: #65 money ($89.3K), #49 RR (2.09), #79 GSPI (72.38), #60 HD.
59. Soo-Yun Kang: #41 money ($177.3K), #76 RR (1.37), #81 GSPI (72.41), #56 HD.
60. Anna Grzebien: #47 money ($137.9K), #104 RR (.91), #51 GSPI (71.83), #62 HD.
61. Stacy Prammanasudh: #49 money ($136.9K), #62 RR (1.66), #100 GSPI (72.72), #67 HD.
