The End of the LPGA West Coast Swing

It's back to Lake Merced Golf Club for the LPGA MEDIHEAL Championship. Lydia Ko defends her last victory on the LPGA. Tony Jesselli's preview is at this link.

Defending champion Lydia Ko

Last year Minjee Lee forced a playoff between her and Ko, and Lydia walked away with the trophy. Now, fresh off a win last week in LA and a jump to #2 in the Rolex Rankings, Minjee is looking to even the score. That could be a tall order though, as Lydia has won the events held at Lake Merced in 2014, 2015 and 2018. She also made the semis at the 2012 US Girls Junior Championship when it was held there. (Minjee Lee did win that year, however.)

Yeah, Lydia likes it at Lake Merced. And a duel between her and Minjee Lee certainly seems to be in the offing this week.

Of course, they won't be the only players in the field. According to Tony, 36 of the Rolex Top50 will be teeing it up this week, which should give us a very competitive event.

GC's coverage begins Thursday at 6pm ET. (Yes, it's another prime time broadcast on the East Coast of the US.) Given the strength of the field, plus the potential battle between Lydia and Minjee, this should be a great event.
