How Are the Biggest Names Doing in Stage II of LPGA Q-School?

You can track the leaderboard for Stage II of LPGA Q-School, read the Round 1 and Round 2 overviews, and check out the Round 3 pairings over at  What you can't really get is a sense of who ought to be making it to Stage III based on their past records.  That's where I come in!  While I don't claim to have encyclopedic knowledge of the field, here's what I expected before the tournament started and how they're actually doing at the halfway point.  It should give you a sense of who's performing above, to, and below expectations thus far.

Keep in mind that the top 80 and ties move on, so there's no need for anyone on this list to panic.  But you can get a sense of who I'd expect to finish in the top 45 or so by reading on.
