Between the most excellent previews of the Walmart NW Arkansas Championship from, Hound Dog, and Tony Jesselli, Hound Dog's rundown of the fight for LPGA membership for next season,'s pre-tournament interviews, and Ward Clayton's Stats and Stuff, as well as the limited time I have in which to finish this post, I'm just going to jump right in with my picks for this week's PakPicker competition at Seoul (based as usual on my own gut feeling, supplemented by the tournament history,'s player performance chart for 2011, and Hound Dog's Hot 20, among other things):

3. Miyazato Mika
4. Creamer
5. Kim In-Kyung

7. Tseng
8. Lewis, Stacy
9. Kerr
10. Lincicome
11. Wie
12. Lee Seon Hwa
