Golf Australia Express : Issue 23
ANEXCITING field of 70 leading women golfers head to Siam Country Club this week. for their shot at this week’s Honda LPGA Thailand title. Way out in front as favourite to win the event sits Taiwan’s Yani Tseng. Last year the world No.1 secured the first of seven season- winning LPGA titles here, firing a superb 6-under 66 on Sunday to win by five shots. But don’t expect the defending champion to race away from the field this time. (Equally, don’t be surprised if she does). A talented group with powerful games like American trio Brittany Lincicombe, Michelle Wie and Lexi Thomspon, Norway’s Suzann Pettersen, Japan’s Ai Miyazato and Sweden’s Caroline Hedwall are ready to fire on all cylinders. Over to you girls. Let the race begin. OTG ANNANORDQVIST is capable of producing great golf. In just her fifth LPGA Tour outing—four days after her 22nd birthday—the Swede shot a sweet 15-under to win the McDonald’s LPGA Championship by four. She followed that major victory with a second Tour title the same year. She hasn’t won since then, but Anna looks on track after finishing tied for 10th after a stunning final round 5-under 68 at Royal Melbourne. KOREA’S HEE Kyung Seo is a classy golfer. The ‘supermodel of the fairways’ has won 11 times on the Korean Tour. And last year she was named the LPGA Tour Rookie of the year on the strength of three top 10s, including a runner-up at the US Open. Seo, 25, lost that one in a playoff and suffered a similar fate at the Women’s Australian Open last week. Can she go one better in Thailand? With her silky smooth swing, we’d say Seo.
