Moriya Jutanugarn, Amanda Blumenherst Lead 2013 ShopRite LPGA Classic After Round 1

As I mentioned in my Roland Garros post before this one, I took some time off to deal with medical issues. Well…and one other thing. I have to admit that  poultry comment from Sergio Garcia reawakened memories of Fuzzy Zoeller…and had me considering switching Fairways and Forehands…to just Forehands. Basically, just follow tennis and drop golf. Problem with that is, there are too many wonderful players and people on the LPGA, JLPGA, KLPGA and LET for me to let Sergio shake my golf fandom. But that’s a post for another day, should that day come. Just a quick comment on round 1 of ShopRite. Usually, I don’t write about round 1 because so much can happen. But it’s nice to see Moriya Jutanugarn and Amanda Blumenherst have great rounds. Sure, Moriya has a comfortable lead in the Rookie of the Year race, but nonetheless has been arguably overshadowed by her little sister Ariya Jutanugarn (who would be crushing the rookie field had she been allowed to qualify). So it is nice to see Moriya have a day in sun, so to speak. For Amanda…to do my best Dick Vitale impression, she was a super, scintillating, sensational amateur. She was PTPer! A prime time player! But she hasn’t been able to duplicate that success on the LPGA tour. Maybe this week is the breakthrough. One last comment. I would be remiss if I didn’t say I was sooooooo happy to see Michelle Wie have a decent round and be in the mix going into Saturday. If Michelle, Moriya and Amanda end up coming down the back 9 on Sunday fighting for the win, it will be difficult for me to pick a favorite.
