I was looking at the Women's Golf rankings earlier for the English players

Charley Hull is top being Number 25 in the world and is probably the most natural talented , but she hardly wins and gives me the impression that it does not matter to her

Georgia Hall [No 39] after winning the British Open in 2018 had a desperate season after that especially in the majors ,and it remains to be seen if she can recover from that lapse especially if boyfriend remains as her caddy

However in my opinion the new English Number one by the end of the year..presuming golf returns soon will be Bronte Law who is currently ranked 34

The 25 year old had her first LPGA win last year and was then one of the stars at the Solheim cup, she is feisty and unlike Hull/Hall looks like she really wants it. I would be confident of her taking her game to the next level this season and could well win one of the five Majors

There is reasonable hope that the KLPGA [South Korean Women] will start their season in the middle of next month

Which has every chance of having some of our bookmakers like Bet 365 forming an outright market, and who knows maybe some television coverage.

That would be great as many of the Women's top golfers come from this country and the quality of that tour is high class, only problem would be the amount of players in the field who would have the surname of Lee!

Spoke to a friend of mine who lives in Busan and he said most of their Golf tournaments have TV Coverage

Also gave me four players to watch out for if the tour goes ahead next month

Da Yeon Lee..said she is capable of winning majors on the Lpga

These three young girls who are yet to win on tour look very promising and could be priced up wrongly over here

Hyun Kyung Park.."is the best of them" plus Ga Young Lee & So Mi Lee

There was one of those dreaded 1 day tournaments in Florida yesterday

The winner was one of the market leaders Erik Barnes with my bet from last week Sean Kelly 2nd

Of more interest though was the improved performance of Jazz Janewattananond in 3rd place, as he will be playing [Virus permitting] the first tournament back on the PGA Tour next month

It seems that when the European Tour returns hopefully in July that the first few tournaments will all be in the UK , and obviously with no crowds

Watching the KPLGA tournament on YouTube . I can understand why they are so successful in their fight against the coronavirus. During the ad breaks they show the precautions taken at the course .
Just fantastic , the standards of hygiene second to none . Everything was glistening like new., spraying , cleaning ... brilliant .

Da Yeon surprisingly missed the cut, looking rusty after her 6 month break

So Mi faded after a decent start [Tied 32nd]

Thought Ga Young did well to finish Tied 19th after a horrible first round and was actually bogey free for her last 54 holes..player to bear in mind next time


As for Hyun...thank you :cheers

A schedule I think that will suit our old friend Matthias Schwab

Followed him blind last season but despite a career best season could not get that first win, but despite the upheaval in the Golfing world this year that maiden victory is surely just around the corner

Well spotted. 365 usually first up . I reckon the other odds compilers wait for them .

Just checked. Ga Young Lee now only 60/1 . Hope your lucky but in the past when happened to me , they have cancelled bet due to 'palpable error'.

My Korean friend also told me to expect good play from Ga Eun Song

She won on the junior tour last week, took the 400-1 but is now into 300-1

Just this minute looking at the Mike Miller ratings /odds ... he rates Song at 80/1 .
Have took the 300/1 as reckon the odds will shrink again.

This week

Da Yeon [16-1] has won this tournament, so improvement can be expectd

Hyun [25-1] owes us nothing, but has decent course form so should contend again

Ga Young [80-1] will go close if avoiding a poor start

So Mi [55-1] lost in a play off on this course last year so will want to prove a point

Not a bad effort considering her odds, finishing Tied 33rd

A player to keep on side if similar prices available

This weeks tournament [Cantata]

Da Yeon...am very sweet on her this week, playing into peakness and decent course form...each way bet @ 28-1

Hyun [35-1]..poor last week and course form nothing to get excited about

Ga Young [125-1]...my bet at big odds was honored last week..to no avail. A player not to lose faith in

So Mi [50-1]...yet to hit form, but it will happen and still a player for the short list
