Back to Business for the LPGA

The Solheim Cup is over and it's back to work for the LPGA. This week the Tour heads up to Portland for the Cambia Portland Classic.

Defending champion Georgia Hall

Georgia Hall is the defending champion but I don't see her listed in the field. In fact, the field isn't as strong as I would have expected, given the history of this event -- but then again, we are barely a week removed from the Solheim Cup.

What history? This is the 50th playing of the Cambia Portland Classic, the longest-running non-major event on the LPGA Tour. And while this isn't the strongest field, it still looks pretty good.

  • Three of the Rolex Top10 are in the field -- Ariya Jutanugarn, Jin Young Ko and Patty Tavitanakit.
  • Some of the Solheim Cup players from both sides are there. Just glancing down the list I saw Yealimi Noh, Jennifer Kupcho, Austin Ernst, Mina Harigae, Brittany Altomare and Carlota Ciganda.
  • And of course a number of top players who weren't part of the Solheim Cup like Brooke Henderson, Nasa Hataoka, Maria Fassi, Sung Hyun Park, Moriya Jutanugarn, Jeongeun Lee6, Aditi Ashok and Jodi Ewart Shadoff are there as well.

The girls get a pretty decent broadcast window as well. GC's live coverage starts Thursday at 3pm ET. Counting this week there are only eight tournaments left on the schedule. Things should get pretty serious down the stretch... and it all starts NOW!
