2013 LPGA Thailand: Storylines I Am Watching

The LPGA moves to Thailand (where I was born) this week for the 2013 Honda LPGA Thailand. Of course, every LPGA fan has their own players and storylines they are watching. On a purely personal basis, I am looking at some young guns to see how they will perform. Of particular interest to me are the Jutanugarn sisters, Ariya and Moriya. Moriya comes off an impressive tie for 4th at the Australian Women’s Open while Ariya comes in having had one of the best amateur careers of recent years. Both Jutanugarn sisters were celebrated amateurs, now professionals. Moriya was a co-winner of LPGA Q-school, while Ariya won the Ladies European Tour Q-school. But the best amateur in the world is, and has been for a while, Lydia Ko. Can the precocious 15 year old, a 3rd place finisher at the Australian Women’s Open, finish what she was unable to last week? I’d also like to see Michelle Wie play well. She is definitely a favorite of mine, so I always root for her. And can Paula Creamer get herself back into the win column? She seems to be a favorite wherever she goes, so I am sure she will have plenty of fans rooting her on in the Land of Smiles.
