More Prime Time LPGA

The LPGA continues its Asian Swing this week at the Honda LPGA Thailand at its traditional venue, the Pattaya Old Course at Siam Country Club. And the player who should be the favorite probably won't get as much attention as she should.

Defending champion Amy Yang

The defending champion from 2019 is Amy Yang... and that was her third win at this event. She almost has to be the favorite this time around, no matter who the announcers choose to talk about.

And we all know who they'll be talking about, don't we?

By my count there will be ten Thais playing in this event, but the focus will be on Patty Tavatanakit. She's returning home for the first time since before the 2020 Australian Swing and she's fresh off her first major at the ANA Inspiration. The Thai contingent has come a long way in the last 10-15 years and will rightfully get a lot of attention for their success in such a short time.

But don't be fooled. Amy Yang is the most interesting player to watch in this field because no one else has so many wins here. She has won nearly 25% of the Honda LPGA Thailand that have been played thus far.

I call that domination.

And as it was last week, GC's coverage begins tonight (Wednesday) at 11pm ET. I'm looking forward to see how Amy does in pursuit of her fourth title.
