Ten Questions for the 2013 Season

As we approach the start of the 2013 season, there are a number of questions I am looking forward to getting the answers to. In reverse order, here are my top ten:

10- Can Morgan Pressel, who had a horrible second half of the season, bounce back and get enough points to make the Solheim Cup team?

 9-  Will Paula Creamer finally get back into the winner's circle, and hold up a trophy for the first time since winning the U.S. Open in 2010?

 8-  Can Lexi Thompson, who moved up 16 places in 2012 to her current #23 world ranking, take it to the next level and compete week in and week out with the elite players of the LPGA tour?

 7-  Will the trend of established stars from other tours winning the Rookie of the Year award continue (Chie Arimura will certainly be the favorite), or will someone else step up and surprise us?

 6-  Can Moriya Jutanugarn (who finished tied for first in the LPGA Q-School finale), and younger sister Ariya Jutanugarn (who won Q-School on the L.E.T), both win Rookie of the Year on their respective tours?

 5-  Can the United States win back the Solheim Cup?

 4-  Can Yani Tseng, who has seen her lead as the #1 player in the world shrink from 9.47 points to just 1.20 points, hold on to the top position?

 3-  Can Ai Miyazato finally break through and win a Major Championship?

 2-  Can an American finally win a Major Championship after being shut out last year?

 1-  Can Stacy Lewis repeat as Player of the Year?

These are just some of the questions that will be answered this coming season.
If anyone has a question of their own, please feel free to post it.
