The Women Resume Their Battle for #1

While the men decompress from the Masters, the ladies are trying to get back on top.

Well, three of them are, anyway.

Inbee Park is the new #1, Stacy Lewis is #2 (a mere .04 points back), and Yani Tseng is #3. A win this week at the LPGA LOTTE Championship will propel any of them to the top spot. After two rounds (the LOTTE started on Wednesday, not Thursday) Lewis is at -6, Park at -3, and Tseng at -1.

However, Suzann Pettersen leads at -10 and she's #6 in the world. That's too far back to take the #1 spot... but getting her second win of the year would certainly give her a boost toward that spot!

The fact that this tournament is in Hawaii -- and is therefore broadcast during primetime (6:30pm-9:30pm ET) -- makes this tournament more interesting than some of the ladies' events.

If I had to place a bet on a new #1, I'd bet on Lewis right now. Park seems to be a bit off her game -- expected after winning her second major just a couple of weeks ago -- and Tseng is still trying to get things back on track. But given the Hawaiian winds, you've got to like the chances of a strong player like Suzann... or defending champion Ai Miyazato's, who's only one stroke back.

But we may end up with a new #1 in the world yet again. That's the real intrigue this week.

Remember, the tournament is being broadcast LIVE on GC at 6:30pm-9:30pm ET tonight and Saturday night.
