Yani Hits a Milestone

At least, a milestone since she hit her "slump" over the last few months. She posted a 70 in her first round at the Safeway Classic, the first time she's posted something that low in her last 10 rounds. That's about 4 tournaments, given how many cuts she's missed.

But she's still 5 off the lead. Sydnee Michaels (she won twice on the Futures Tour last year) and Mika Miyazato both shot 65s to post 7-under. Several players who aren't quite as well known are playing well, but 4 well-known names stand out to me... and they'll be in the broadcast window today.

Cristie Kerr may have finally snapped out of her own slump; she's at 6-under. She's been on the verge of playing well, but hasn't been getting out of the gate very well lately. She did Friday, so maybe this is the week she turns things around.

Inbee Park is continuing her improved play, also posting 6-under. She's arguably the hottest player on Tour right now, having 6 straight Top10s (with 1 win) in the last 6 weeks.

So Yeon Ryu is coming off that blistering 62 that won the Jamie Farr Toledo Classic for her last weekend. She's 5-under.

And Paula Creamer's at 4-under. She's also posted a few Top10s over the last few tournaments.

I certainly wouldn't say nobody else has a good chance. The leaderboard's pretty tight right now. But all 4 of these players are experienced winners playing well. I wouldn't bet against them.

GC starts their broadcast 6:30pm ET tonight for 3 hours. And since the tournament's in North Plains, Oregon, it'll be live. It's nice to see some live LPGA action for a change!
