SunCoast Series January: Duncan Wins Rio Pinar, Strong Fields at Forest Lake and West Orange

The SunCoast Series is starting to heat up, as more and more golfers kick off their 2010 seasons down in Florida this month.

Last week, Meredith Duncan shot 3 straight 70s at Rio Pinar to run away from Kendall Dye, Hannah Yun, and Taylor Leon. It's a good sign for Duncan, who's slipped down to #158 on the LPGA's priority status list. My old golfing buddy Moira Dunn was quite a bit rustier, but no worries!

This week, Maria Hjorth, Jane Park, Sandra Gal, and Taylor Leon are headlining the Forest Lake field. But don't overlook LPGA rookies Misun Cho, Christine Song, and Cindy LaCrosse or Futures Tour favorites Hannah Yun, Briana Vega, and Su A Kim. Pretty sweet for Yun to be paired with Hjorth and Gal!

The following week at West Orange, Lorie Kane, Paula Creamer, and Stacy Lewis join in the fun, along with soon-to-be ex-Senior Standout Katie Futcher, soon-to-be Senior Standout Na On Min, and soon-to-be Super Sophs M.J. Hur and Haeji Kang. They'll have to be ready to play, as Maria Hjorth and Hannah Yun will be making it 2 and 3 weeks in a row, respectively.

Looks like the Florida weather is back to normal, so we'll get a better sense of what kind of game everyone is bringing into the new season in the next 2 weeks than last one....
