My Picks for the Marathon Classic

The LPGA returns to the Toledo, Ohio, area for the Marathon Classic, where Beatriz Recari defeated Paula Creamer in a pitched battle last year, and where Se Ri Pak has won 5 times, most recently in 2007.  The field features many top golfers, but no Pak, Karrie Webb, Inbee Park, Suzann Pettersen, Shanshan Feng, Amy Yang, Ya Ni Tseng, Hee Young Park, or In-Kyung Kim.  After a truly horrific week of picking at Royal Birkdale, I'm stacking my entries in this week's PakPicker at Seoul Sisters.com with golfers who have a great history in Sylvania!

1. Ryu
2. Lewis, Stacy
3. Wie
4. Thompson
5. Ko
6. Creamer
7. Munoz
8. Kerr
9. Stanford
10. Recari
11. Choi Chella
12. Choi Na Yeon

Alts: Shin; Lee Meena; Pressel

You can compare my picks to Tony Jesselli's.  Tony just passed me in the season-long PakPicker race....  Plus, he's attending the tournament with his wife, so be sure to check out his blog!

Be interesting to know if the missing IC players are heading off early to Owings Mills, Maryland for some practice rounds. All team USA are playing this tournament.
