A lot has happened on the LPGA the past few weeks. Here is a recap of some of the major stories:

Re: LPGA Tour Thread - All About Ariya!

I had Amy Olson as my fantasy pick this week. First relatively good pick I have had all year. Even better was that other person had Jodi Hyphen with a MC.

Troon delivering as expected. I didn't get to watch today's coverage yet since YouTubeTV didn't auto-record it for me. Looking forward to catching the finish in real time tomorrow.

Good stuff at the women's Open, Popov ranked #304 in the world and was caddying a couple of weeks ago. Now 3 shots up with 4 to play, hope she hangs on. Always a fan of an underdog story. If she wins the check will be 6x her lifetime earnings on the LPGA tour.

Very cool.

Great golf down the stretch. Best decision I've seen in a long time was taking putter on the 3rd shot on #18.

Re: LPGA Tour Thread - All About Ariya!

More out of left field British Open winner: Popov or Ben Curits? I'm going with Popov.

Tough call. Curtis was ranked lower (396th) but had full status on Tour that year after surviving Q school.

Both the menís and womenís Open Championship can have unusual winners due to the vagaries of links golf. Remember 50 somethings Tom Watson and Greg Norman in the final group on Sunday in consecutive years?

Dang... didn't know Norman was in position to win in his 50s too.

The thing about Popov is she wouldn't have even been in the ARK event (where she finished in the top 10 to qualify for the BO) if it wasn't for Covid.

It’s certainly frustrating, but they are simply following the rules that have been in place for many years and already applied to multiple players with little to no public outcry. The LPGA shouldn’t just up and change a rule for somebody with a great backstory.

There are different rules in place across all the tours for members vs. non-members. If a non-member wins an event, he/she never gets all the trappings that a member would.

So while it’s weird, she isn’t getting screwed out of anything. That being said, it would be cool if they changed the rule. But doing so would really piss off the previous non-members that had won.

The AIG British Open she won last year was her first time out of Japan. Some donít feel comfortable going to different countries. Sheís still very young so that may change. It could also be a cultural thing.

She plays solely on the Japan LPGA Tour where she has won 4 times.

I thought Mike Whan's statement was pretty solid. I wouldn't be surprised if they changed the rule but it makes sense to consider it after the season.

Major time. Pretty pleased to see that there is quite a bit of TV.

Re: LPGA Tour Thread - All About Ariya!

What's this BS with the backstop they created behind the 18th green? I really wanted to see people go for it and dump it in the water behind the green.

Re: LPGA Tour Thread - All About Ariya!

Nelly had a 0% chance to win as soon as she laid-up on 18 in regulation. Talk about playing not to lose. I think they said she had about 170 to clear the water and 190 to the hole. WTF are you laying up for? The lie looked good enough.

Managed to remain unspoiled and just finished watching. I need chipping lessons from Mirim Lee.

Re: LPGA Tour Thread - All About Ariya!

It took a lot longer than we originally expected, but the LPGA has completed its first ten tournaments on the abbreviated 2020 schedule.

Re: LPGA Tour Thread - All About Ariya!

Korea sent their B team and still shipped the major. Love those girls
Good to see Sung Hyung Park back even if not playing well

Yealimi Noh could be a big deal someday. Tempted to bet on her this week but the price isnít right and maybe a bit early to expect her to beat the likes of Green and Yang

She definitely has the talent and a lot of good experience, just needs to get that first win. Hasn't looked great since the restart but seems to be playing well this week so maybe she's back.

Tough draw for Portland to be up against the U.S. Open, but looking forward to catching up on the coverage later.
