Who Would You Follow at the Evian Championship?

There's no doubt which threesome the Constructivist family would be following during the 1st round of the Evian Championship!  It consists of onechan's, imoto's, and my favorite golfers:

12:53 pm, 1st tee: Paula Creamer, Ji-Yai Shin, Ai Miyazato

But, honestly, there are so many interesting pairings!  You've got your legends and the lucky players to be paired with them:

1:15 pm, 1st tee: Juli Inkster, Laura Davies, Karrie Webb
8:51 am, 10th tee: Se Ri Pak, Lizette Salas, Jennifer Johnson
1:37 pm, 1st tee: Helen Alfredsson, Sophie Gustafson, Lee-Anne Pace
8:51 am, 1st tee: Jeong Jang, Haeji Kang, Ilhee Lee

You've got your top-ranked stars and up-and-comers:

8:18 am, 10th tee: Inbee Park, Ya Ni Tseng, Catriona Matthew
1:04 pm, 1st tee: Stacy Lewis, Suzann Pettersen, Shanshan Feng
8:40 am, 10th tee: So Yeon Ryu, Caroline Hedwall, Angela Stanford
1:04 pm, 10th tee: Na Yeon Choi, Meena Lee, Sun Young Yoo
8:07 am, 10th tee: Lydia Ko, Charley Hull, Xi Yu Lin

Nice touch to put Ryu and Hedwall together, who probably both can't believe they didn't win last week on the KLPGA and LET, respectively!

You've got your Solheim Cup teammates reunited:

1:26 pm, 1st tee: Anna Nordqvist, Beatriz Recari, Karine Icher
8:29 am, 10th tee: Cristie Kerr, Lexi Thompson, Jessica Korda

And you've got fascinating mixes of players who could do very well this week:

1:26 pm, 10th tee: Morgan Pressel, Mika Miyazato, Jenny Shin
12:53 pm, 10th tee: In-Kyung Kim, Caroline Masson, Chella Choi
8:29 am, 1st tee: Amy Yang, Carlota Ciganda, Pornanong Phatlum
8:40 am, 1st tee: Hee Young Park, Azahara Munoz, Giulia Sergas
12:42 pm, 1st tee: Michelle Wie, Natalie Gulbis, Cheyenne Woods
1:15 pm, 10th tee: Brittany Lincicome, Jodi Ewart Shadoff, Mo Martin

And really that's just the tip of the iceberg.  My old golfing buddy Moira Dunn is in the 2nd group off the 10th tee with none other than the former leader in the Rookie of the Year race, Moriya Jutanugarn.  Jane Park is in the next-to-last group off the 1st tee with Lisa McCloskey.  Mina Harigae also goes off late, but starts on the back.

And so on.  You could choose a group at random and find something interesting about the pairing.

Which ones stand out to you?  Who would you follow and why?
