More Prime Time LPGA Golf

This week the LPGA heads out to Los Angeles for the HUGEL-JTBC LA Open.

Defending champion Minjee Lee

Like so many other events last year, the HUGEL-JTBE fell victim to the pandemic. But this year the event returns to the Wilshire Country Club where Minjee Lee picked up her fifth LPGA title way back in 2019 -- making her the defending champion, of course.

Would a win from Minjee rank beside Lydia Ko's win last week? Not really. Besides her 2019 win in LA being more recent than Lydia's had been, Minjee has posted several Top10s since the LPGA resumed their schedule last July. But since her T5 at the KIA, Minjee's T25 at the ANA and MC last week at the LOTTE aren't what we've come to expect from her... and certainly less than she expects from herself.

LA is a good place for her to get some winning vibes going again, even though the field looks to be pretty strong -- the HSBC Women's World Championship in Singapore is next week so, despite the impending travel, players are looking to tune up their games this week.

But I suspect Lydia's win last week provided some motivation for Minjee. Their rivalry goes back quite a ways.

GC's coverage begins TONIGHT (Wednesday night -- I'm not making that mistake again) at 6pm ET. Let's see if Minjee can rediscover that edge she had before the pandemic trashed everybody's 2020.
