Who Are Your Picks for the ShopRite LPGA Classic?

With 1st-time winners in the last 2 LPGA events, you'd think this week's predictions might be a little harder than usual to make.  But let's face, it, we're more likely to get unexpected champions when the field is relatively weak (as it was in Alabama) or when the course is new or conditions are weird (as they were in the Bahamas).  Seaview, the host course for the ShopRite LPGA Classic, on the other hand, is a known quantity, a short, ball-striker's course with lots of Atlantic breezes (or worse) to liven things up.  And as Tony Jesselli notes in his tournament preview, the field is very strong.  So here are my entries in this week's PakPicker contest at Seoul

1. Miyazato Ai
2. Shin Ji-Yai
3. Creamer
4. Kerr
5. Lewis, Stacy
6. Miyazato Mika
7. Webb
8. Ryu
9. Nordqvist
10. Park Inbee
11. Kim In-Kyung
12. Choi Na Yeon

Alts: Seo; Arimura; Pettersen

So who are you picking this week?
