Group 4:

I’m not real crazy about any of the golfers in group 4. There are a couple that are interesting, but I’m not real confident in any of them.

We’ll start off with Lee Lopez. She will, basically, be making her LPGA re-debut at the U.S. Women’s Open. She played at the Safeway Classic, but that was way back in 2012.

More from LPGA

She has been playing on the Symetra Tour and in fact, is coming off tying the Symetra Tour Par-72 record by shooting 10-under 62  in the final round of the Tulleymore Classic.

She’s not a one round wonder though. She has been playing great golf all year long on the Symetra Tour. Lopez is 4th on the Symetra Tour on the Official Money List. And in twelve events she has finished in the top ten, five times.

She is a young, talented prospect that comes from the golf powerhouse at UCLA. I would say that she has a low floor given her lack of experience, but a high ceiling if you want to bank on her pure talent.

Candie Kung, the Trojan from Southern California, is probably the high floor pick. She is a veteran that has a lot of experience, but her best days might already be behind her. Kung hasn’t recorded a top ten at the U.S. Open since 2009.

Danielle Kang has made the cut in four of her last five tournaments here at the U.S. Open. Wei-Ling Hsu has been solid on the LPGA Tour only missing the cut in two of fourteen events.

All in all, I’m going to go with Lee Lopez. She might not be the “safe” pick, but I’m banking on her upside.
