LPGA Championship Final Round Pairings

Wow, even if the final result of the LPGA Championship is probably not in that much doubt, the final round pairings combined with the great weather should really bring out the crowds tomorrow. They're finally able to actually go out in pairs--and the tournament organizers couldn't have scripted them better.

Consider the following precision player/bomber dynamic duos:

9:52 am: Michelle Wie and Haeji Kang
11:20 am: Morgan Pressel and Ya Ni Tseng
11:28 am: Na On Min and Brittany Lincicome
11:44 am: Suzann Pettersen and Lindsey Wright

There will also be some serious distance differentials in the following pairings:

8:08 am: Juli Inkster and Mi Hyun Kim
9:44 am: Mariajo Uribe and Jeong Jang
10:56 am: Ai Miyazato and Brittany Lang
11:36 am: Stacy Lewis and Seon Hwa Lee
11:52 am: In-Kyung Kim and Inbee Park
12:24 pm: Song-Hee Kim and Ji-Yai Shin
12:40 pm: Cristie Kerr and Jimin Kang

In these pairings, you'll get to see how players of similar length handle Locust Hill:

9:20 am: Mina Harigae and Stacy Prammanasudh
10:16 am: Chie Arimura and Anna Nordqvist
10:40 am: Paula Creamer and Natalie Gulbis
11:12 am: Christina Kim and Sakura Yokomine
12:16 pm: Karrie Webb and Catriona Matthew
12:32 pm: Azahara Munoz and Mika Miyazato

If I can get to the course by 9 am, I can follow Mina and Stacy P for awhile and circle back to the 1st tee in time to pick up Ai-sama and Brittany. If I'm really motivated, I could do 3 rotations on the front before the girls are out of the pool and start with Juli and Peanut.... Decisions, decisions!

[Update 1 (6:37 am): Here are Mike Southern and Jeff Skinner on Kerr's chances of getting her 2nd major and becoming the 1st American to ever reach #1 in the Rolex Rankings.]

Thanks, David. Just having fun with it--and putting out the kind of stuff I've been finding hard to find elsewhere. But do check out the blogs on my sidebar and my guide to the best bloggers on women's golf!
