Finally had a chance to look over the LPGA's stats pages, so get ready for some crazy predictions (in no particular order):
1. Get used to fine play from Beatriz Recari, Lizette Salas, Haeji Kang, Jessica Korda, Danielle Kang, Guilia Sergas, and Pornanong Phatlum. They aren't going away any time soon. And they could win any given week.
2. Look for Na Yeon Choi, In-Kyung Kim, Ai Miyazato, So Yeon Ryu, Paula Creamer, and Ya Ni Tseng to start finishing as well in tournaments as their stats suggest they should be doing. Yes, I'm talking wins for each of them before the year is out. Maybe in the order I listed them. Probably not. But wouldn't it be cool? (Oh, and watch out for Angela Stanford, Hee Kyung Seo, and Caroline Hedwall, too. But I'm not calling wins for them. Just telling you not to be surprised if they do. Cristie Kerr is closer to playing well again than it appears, too.)
3. There is no way for Inbee Park and Stacy Lewis to keep putting as well over the next 21 events this year as they have in the LPGA's 1st 7. NO WAY. Or Hee Kyung Seo, for that matter. It just is not humanly possible.
4. Michelle Wie is showing serious signs of coming out of her slump. She oughtta be seriously considered as an Adam Scott-style captain's pick for the Solheim Cup. This is not a joke.
5. Moriya Jutanugarn's ginormous lead in the Rookie of the Year race is in danger. (She's just not making birdies at the rate an elite LPGA player should. Right now, she's been overachieving and her top competition has been slumping. I'm looking at you, Arimura-san!)
