The Ladies Dream Golf players have finalized their picks for the WalMart NW Arkansas Championship. It’s an all-American line-up with world-ranked number 1 Stacy Lewis at the top of the LDG Dream Team list, followed by Rolex ranked #18 Jessica Korda, Rolex-ranked # 73 Brittany Lang, and Rolex-ranked #212 Brooke Pancake to make the cut.
The Ladies Dream Golf players shied away from Michelle Wie, who outplayed Lewis last week at the US Women’s Open, perhaps reasoning — as I did in my own picks — that Wie’s coming into the WalMart Championship a bit tired from her post-Open New York City PR tour.
Korda’s game has cooled off a bit since her early season win at the Pure Silk-Bahamas LPGA Classic and her win at the Airbus LPGA Classic was sandwiched in between a low finish at the Kingsmill Championship and a missed cut at the US Women’s Open. I think the LDG players are being overly optimistic with the Korda pick.
Lang, who’s been on the Tour since 2008, looks like a solid pick to make the cut. She only has one top-10 finish this year, but she hasn’t missed a cut in the last seven events.
Pancake, playing her second year on the Tour, is still looking for her first top-10 finish and she’s missed the cut twice out of the ten events she’s entered. I wonder what crystal ball the LDG players gazed into for this pick?
