Daisuke Takahashi was finally able to beat Patrick Chan (in an exhibition, but who's counting?), so I'm thinking the stars are aligning for Ai Miyazato to get her 1st win of 2012 at the LPGA Lotte Championship today after twice being unable to hold off Ya Ni Tseng already this year. She didn't play perfect golf yesterday, but, then, neither did anyone chasing her. Cristie Kerr and Azahara Munoz showed a lot of grit down the stretch to make up for many mistakes throughout the day, but still are 3 behind Ai-sama, while a host of big names (including the aforementioned world #1) pulled within 4. At one point everyone who's been #1 in the world of women's golf in the past 2 or 3 seasons was 1-2-3-4. They're all there in the last 2 groups. It's feeling a lot like 2010, baby!
