Coates Championship

Round 4 - Choi takes title but Ko No.1

January 31, 2015

When the dust settled on one of the tumultuous back nines in recent LPGA memory, Lydia Ko emerged with the No. 1 ranking – the youngest in men’s or women’s golf history – but not the tournament title after a double bogey on the 17th derailed her from the title that Na Yeon Choi walked away with. Choi finished one shot clear of Ko, Ha Na Jang and Jessica Korda at the Coates Golf Championship Presented by R&L Carriers at 16 under. But when Lydia Ko exited the scorer’s tent, she was informed that at 17 years old she was the new projected No. 1 when the rankings are released come Monday.

She let out an exasperated gasp, rolled her eyes as if the mere thought of No. 1 was an annoyance, everyone laughed, and she smiled and ran over to take selfies with fans. Only Ko could have remained this cool throughout a disappointing loss and subsequent major honor. As always, nothing seems to have an influence on the new projected world No. 1.

“It’s amazing. I didn’t know that, I didn’t really know what I needed to do to get in that position. All I was focused was try and play my best out here today. So it’s a huge honor to be in that ranking,” Ko said. “I’m just going to focus on my golf, not think about the rankings. The rankings, like I said, it always comes after the results.”

Na Yeon Choi didn’t walk away with the ranking but she surely exited with the trophy after a final-round 68. The eight-time career LPGA winner hadn’t won since 2012 and was admittedly getting fed up with a self-perceived cold streak.

“I think I had a lot of stress from my results,” Choi said. “Even if I finished top 5 or 10, not many people said, ‘You did a good job!’”

Choi said the pressure from back home began to mount with each stellar result, which in turn then later exacerbated the perception of a slump among fans and media in Korea. She finished 13th on the money list – the worst finish in her seven years on Tour – and “no one says, like, ‘Na Yeon did a good job.’”

“I know they have a lot of expectations from me because they think I’m a good player, so they always want me being a champion and win a tournament,” Choi said. “But this is golf and there’s like more than 30 tournaments a year. And still last year I missed the cut twice, but that was the most I have in like the last seven years and they think I got like a slump.”

Lydia Ko’s big reward for becoming the world No. 1?

“I’m just excited that we can actually drive home tonight. We can drive home. It’s really cool to have a Saturday finish,” Ko said.

It’d be easy for the No. 1 to change the seemingly unflappable Ko but no one that’s gotten to know her over the last two years on Tour sees that happening to this seemingly otherworldly 17-year-old.

“I think she’s kind of starting to figure it out that there’s a lot more that goes on, but she’s still pretty naive at 17 and I don’t see this changing her too much or changing her outlook,” former World No. 1 Stacy Lewis said. “She might be a little bit busier, but I don’t see Lydia changing too much.”

In most pros mind, this was only a matter of time. Even at 17.

“Doesn’t surprise me. She’s very talented,” Cristie Kerr said. “It will be interesting to see how she handles it. I’ll be watching just as much as you. I’m going to be chasing her down this year. I’m going to try, anyways.”

Added Lewis: “It’s history. It’s never been done. I can’t say I’m surprised. It was just a matter of time. She’s playing some great golf right now and she’s confident. She’s rolling in putts and it’s good. She’s a good kid and a good person to see at the top of the world.”

Both Kerr and Lewis have held the No. 1 post and had a simple heads up for Ko about the most difficult aspect of being No. 1.

“Staying there. To maintain that level of play for a long period of time. Tiger did it forever, Lorena. See what happens,” Kerr said.

Added Inbee Park, who Ko is projected to take the No. 1 ranking from: “I mean, just the thought that everybody’s behind you and trying to catch you. And you have to play well every week, that’s obviously hard to do.”

But when pros are asked to describe her game, it’s hard to imagine her not at least battling for the No. 1 ranking for a long time.

“She’s probably the straightest player out on the Tour, and obviously she can roll the putts in. So, I mean, the golf gets easier from there if you hit the ball straight and you can roll the ball in,” Park said. “I heard putting even better than last year, so that’s going to be really tough to beat.”

Added Kerr” She’s way wise beyond her years.”

Kerr pointed to the CME Group Tour Championship when Ko won the tournament and the Race to the CME Globe for the biggest prize in women’s golf history as the time she realized this was a 17-year-old going on 30 on the golf course.

“She not only won the CME and a million and a half was on the line and it didn’t even look like she cared, you know,” Kerr said.

Kerr was then asked if she’d ever seen Ko rattled, and ended the interview with a classic response.

“Her? Not yet but she hasn’t lived that long,” she said with a laugh.

Korda starts the year strong again: Jessica Korda was a lipped out birdie putt on 18 away from sneaking into a playoff with eventual winner Na Yeon Choi and a chance at her third season-opening victory in four years.

“Almost,” Korda said after her round. “It lipped out. It was pretty tough, a tough break.” Korda, who picked up wins at last year’s PureSilk Bahamas LPGA Classic and the 2012 Handa Australian Open to start LPGA seasons, will have to settle for a T2 in her 2015 season debut.

“Always feels good to start strong but you’ve got to keep it going,” Korda said. “It’s a really long season and it’s just one of those, it’s a marathon, not a sprint in the first tournament. It’s been a lot of fun.”

Highs and lows for Ko: Golf is a game of ups and downs and nothing was more evident than Lydia Ko dropping a 60-foot birdie putt on 15 and following it up with a double bogey on the 17th.

“You know, it’s tough,” Ko admitted. “Na Yeon was playing great, great all day, and so were the other players. I just tried to focus on my game, that’s what I can do really. Obviously I really didn’t expect that putt to go in on 15. Yeah, I was just off the green and when I hit it it was going in there really firm. So when I made that putt I kind of had goosebumps going all over me. I guess that kind of just balances it out with a couple loose shots on 17. I holed a lot of good putts today and the last couple days, so I really think just everything just balanced it out. Obviously there were some angry emotions, too, but what can I do?”

Numbers to know:
6 - Alison Walshe tallied her career best finish with a solo sixth. Walshe also finished T6 at the 2013 Sime Darby Malaysia
7 - The par-5 seventh has played as the easiest hole on the course at 4.758, Na Yeon Choi played the hole in 3-under for the week
13- The par-4 13th has played as the hardest hole on the course this week at 4.380, Na Yeon Choi played the hole in
2-over for the week
24 - Na Yeon Choi only needed 24 putts in her final round
2012 - Na Yeon Choi’s win today is her first since the 2012 CME Group Titleholders

Quote of the day: “Oh, so crazy. I feel like I’m playing a major. It’s incredible. First tournament of the season. Stands are full, fairways are full. It’s incredible.” -Jessica Korda on the fans at the Coates Golf Championship Presented by R&L Carriers

Round 3 - Ko could take World No.1

January 30, 2015

Rolex Rankings No. 2 Lydia Ko (-14)
Rolex Rankings No. 21 Ha Na Jang (-13)
Rolex Rankings No. 17 Na Yeon Choi (-12)
Rolex Rankings No. 3 Stacy Lewis (-10)
Rolex Rankings No. 23 Amy Yang (-9)

Lydia Ko, 17, could become the youngest in men’s or women’s golf history to ascend to the world No. 1 ranking with a win in the final round of the Coates Golf Championship Presented by R&L Carriers Saturday. She took a one-shot lead after the third round Friday courtesy of a 7-under-par 65 that included a stretch of five consecutive birdies from holes 12 through 16.

“I really haven’t thought about it,” Ko said. “Like I always say, the rankings come after the results in each tournament, so it would be great and it would be a huge honor to be in that position, but we’ve still got another long 18 holes to go and you just never know what’s going to happen in those holes.”

Ko admitted she was upset at herself after three-putting on Nos. 10 and 11 but settled herself to get in in 3-under 33. At 14-under-par for the tournament, Ko leads Ha Na Jang by one shot and Na Yeon Choi by two shots. Stacy Lewis sits four shots back in fourth at 10-under-par for the tournament after a third round 70 but thinks she’s still got a shot come Saturday.

“You look at we’ve shot some 6-, 7-unders, so you can get it going on this course,” Lewis said. “Just got to clean the round up a little bit, just hit the ball a little bit better and give myself some more opportunities.”

After a disappointing 1-under 71 for Jang Friday, Jang’s irons weren’t up to par in the third round but said she’s got her eyes on where she thinks she needs to be come Sunday on 18 when the last putt drops.

“I think the winner’s score is maybe 16-under, so maybe three more birdies. But it maybe 17, 18-under tomorrow,” Jang said. “Five more birdies? I can do it!”

No.1 scenarios: Stacy Lewis, Inbee Park and Lydia Ko could all reasonably end the week with the No. 1 ranking.

Lydia Ko will take No. 1 with a win regardless of what else happens. Lydia, with a win, would become the youngest No. 1 in men’s or women’s golf history. If Lydia finishes in solo 2nd, she will take No. 1 regardless of what Stacy Lewis does as long as Inbee Park finishes in a three-way tie for third or worse.

Stacy Lewis will take No. 1 ONLY if Inbee Park finishes 8th-or-worse AND Lydia finishes in a three-way tie for second-or ­worse.

Inbee can lock up No. 1 with a solo third finish-or-better as long as Ko doesn’t win.

One voice in the crowd stands out for Ko: With the crowds out in force this week at the Coates Golf Championship Presented by R&L Carriers it may be hard for one voice to rise above the rest, but this isn’t the case for Lydia Ko who can always hear her dad.

“I can always spot it,” Ko admitted. “It’s a voice I always hear. And he actually has quite a loud voice just even talking, so he’s always verbal out there. But in a way it’s good, it kind of gives me a little bit of oomph and it’s good to have the support.”

Ko has had success with her dad on site as she picked up wins at the Swinging Skirts LPGA Classic and CME Group Tour Championship.

A win this week would also guarantee Ko the title of No. 1 in the world.

What would her dad think of the accomplishment?

“I’m pretty sure he’s going to be more excited that I won than I came in first in the world rankings.”

Big day of double duty for Amy Yang: Amy Yang entered the day 10 shots back of the lead – well outside of the conversation of who could win this – but she’ll certainly be in that discussion come Saturday after tying the round of the tournament with a 7-under-par 65 to get to 9-under-par for the tournament. She’ll be five shots back entering the final round Saturday.

Yang was actually 10-under in total on Friday after playing the four holes she had to finish in the morning 3-under-par over that four-hole stretch.

“I mean, I started pretty good from the early four holes from yesterday’s round,”Yang said. “Three birdies in four holes.”

As for what needs to happen to complete an impressive comeback tomorrow? More of the same.

“My shots were good. I’ve been working on it, and I think it’s improving. I had good speed, very good speed on the greens, and I think I just need to keep doing what I’m doing,”Yang said.

Numbers to know:
-11 - Amy Yang shot 11-under on Friday. Yang finished her delayed second round in 3-under before shooting 8-under
2.635 - The course played 2.635 strokes easier in round 3 (71.467) than in the opening round (74.102)

Round 2 - Frost delays play in Florida

January 29, 2015

Rolex Rankings No. 21 Ha Na Jang (-12)
Rolex Rankings No. 3 Stacy Lewis (-8)
Rolex Rankings No. 14 Azahara Munoz (-7)
Rolex Rankings No. 2 Lydia Ko (-7)
Rolex Rankings No. 20 Paula Creamer(-2)
Rolex Rankings No. 6 Michelle Wie (-2)
Rolex Rankings No. 232 Cheyenne Woods (+4)

Stacy Lewis, Jessica Korda, and Azahara Munoz, the headliners atop the leaderboard, headed off the first tee in the morning wave after an hour and half delay looking to steal the show and ensure the season opener would go to a veteran.

Rookie Ha Na Jang, the first to tee off in the afternoon wave, had other plans, following up a first-round 67 with a scorching 7-under-par 65 that was four shots better than anyone else in the field that finished their round on Thursday. Jang didn’t have to use her flat stick a ton after hitting four approaches inside three feet, but she saved her best work on the greens for last, draining a curling bender of a 25 footer on the last in dwindling light to complete the tournament’s best round yet.

“I think today my second shot were better,” Jang, the No. 21 ranked player in the world, said. “Very nice iron shots today.”

It was the type of steely calm performance far beyond a rookie in the season opener, leaving one reporter to ask if she felt like a rookie at 22 years of age.

“No, I don’t think so. I’m too old,” she said with a laugh.

50 players remained on the golf course Thursday after the frost delay pushed back the afternoon wave.

Stacy Lewis sits in second at 8-under-par after a second-round 70. Lydia Ko (69), Azahara Munoz (70) are tied in third with Angela Stanford and Austin Ernst, who each have four and five holes left to play in the second round,
respectively. Pushing the second round into Friday morning came at the worst time for Stanford who was 6-under for the day and charging up the leaderboard.

When Lewis finished her round, she surely didn’t leave the golf course thinking there was a 66 out there and likely thought she’d enter Friday’s third round with a lead, not a four-shot deficit.

“We shot some 66s yesterday and I think that’s a great score on this golf course. The greens are just so tricky, there’s not a lot of hole locations on a couple of the greens, you have to hit it to the right spot,” Lewis said. “You can make some bogeys and worse pretty quick. It’s just staying patient.”

Added Munoz: “1-under on this golf course is always good.”.

Play to resume tomorrow: For those players not completing their rounds on Thursday, the resumption of round two will begin at 7:30 a.m. on Friday morning.

Projected starting times for round three will begin at 10:30 a.m off of the 1st and 10th tees.

Creamer tallies LPGA's first ace of 2015: Paula Creamer made her fifth hole-in-one on Thursday with a baby cut five iron that took one hop forward and
trickled in, setting off a high stepping little jig dance on the tee box. The hole-in-one came on the sixth hole, a replica of Augusta National’s 16th hole.

“I said I made my hole-in-one at Augusta. I go, ‘Where’s the car?’” Creamer said. “But I guess having a hole-in-one at Augusta is better than a car.”

Unfortunately, there was no car for Creamer. There’s never been a car for any of her five aces, even though she thought there was at her last hole-in-one in Thailand two years ago.

“Even the one in Thailand, there was a car on it but they just had it sitting there. I was like, ‘You can’t do that!’” Creamer said. “I was not a happy person after that. I said, ‘You should give me one anyways.’”

Creamer said that day in Thailand she and her caddie were going down the fairway acting like they were driving in their new car only to find out afterwards that they didn’t win the car. They didn’t win one for the hole-in-one on
Thursday either, but aces never get old. Even for someone with five.

“Never! Gosh, that’s why you play. You play for that perfect moment,” Creamer said.

Crowds out in force at Golden Ocala:
One of the biggest takeaways from the week has been the great support from the fans at Golden Ocala. Several players made it a point to acknowledge their appreciation. Below are what some of the LPGA’s best have had to say.

Michelle Wie
“Oh, my God, it’s been incredible. It’s like a major turn out. For a Wednesday, Thursday, it’s pretty incredible. I’m
excited to see how big the crowds are going to be tomorrow and Saturday.”

Paula Creamer
“Even in the pro am that we played there was a lot of people out here. Today I didn’t know what to expect. I knew the afternoons would be nice, but this is awesome. This is what we want, and it just shows that tournaments here in Florida and especially here in Ocala, it’s nice to get a good crowd and they love golf.”

Stacy Lewis
“I was in shock actually when I walked on that tee and saw how many people there were. It’s amazing. It shows that this is the kind of town that we should be playing in. We’re the biggest thing that’s coming right now and this is where we should be playing.”

Lydia Ko
“it’s been really good crowds. Even yesterday we were playing in the afternoon, there were a lot of people out here. Just I guess following from tee to green not only our group but the groups behind and in front also. I think it’s been great and the fans here are really excited. It’s always exciting for me to play in front of them.”

Lydia and Stacy at it again: Stacy Lewis and Lydia Ko are battling it out for the No. 1 spot in the Rolex Rankings, as both would have a chance to take the top spot with a win this week. The duo were paired together for the first two rounds of the Coates Golf
Championship Presented by R&L Carriers.

“She’s played great every single time I’ve played with her,” Ko said. “I kind of try and feed off her and she’s someone I look up to and I always learn. She’s such a confident player. I always enjoy playing with her. Yeah, it’s always fun whenever I get paired up with Stacy.”

Lewis echoed Ko’s statements.

“She’s fun, easy to play with,” Lewis said. “I think we have similar games and we play well on the same type of golf courses. This one, you look at this and like San Francisco, tree lined golf course, you’ve got to hit it on the right spots on the greens, play smart. I think our games are just really similar so we play well on the same courses.”

Numbers to know:
26.5 - Through the first two rounds Ha Na Jang has averaged 26.5 putts per round
162 - Distance of Paula Creamer’s ace on the par-3 sixth
1.128 - The course played 1.128 strokes easier today
13 - The par-4 13th has played as the hardest hole on the course this week at 4.419
7 - The par-5 seventh has played as the easiest hole on the course at 4.789

Round 1 - Lewis, Munoz & Korda take first round lead

January 28, 2015

Rolex Rankings No. 3 Stacy Lewis (-6)
Rolex Rankings No. 14 Azahara Munoz (-6)
Rolex Rankings No. 24 Jessica Korda (-6)
Rolex Rankings No. 21 Ha Na Jang (-5)
Rolex Rankings No. 74 Austin Ernst (-5)

Minutes before the veil of darkness closed on the first round at the Coates Championship Presented by R&L Carriers, Stacy Lewis, Aza­hara Munoz and Jessica Korda all snuck in their final hole of the day to steal the first-round lead with 6-under-par 66s. Not all were lucky enough to finish the first round of the season before nightfall. 20 players will return to the golf course to finish their rounds Thursday.

“I just stayed patient out there. Finally on the back nine kind of got more comfortable just with back playing again and started hitting golf shots,” Lewis said. “Had a couple birdies that were just tap-ins, which helped, and rolled a few putts in so it was a good day. I almost wish we didn’t have darkness and could keep going, I finally got into a rhythm there.”

Ha Na Jang and Austin Ernst went out in the morning wave and looked like they would hold the first round lead after 5-under-par 67s, but Lewis, Munoz and Korda all got hot late to steal the first-round lead late Wednesday at Golden Ocala Golf and Equestrian Club. Lewis birdied five or her last six, including her last three, Korda birdied three of her last five, and Munoz birdied her last two to close at 66.

Korda described the season opener as the “first day back to school,” and she surely aced her first test. While the school kids break out their freshest gear for the first day, Korda surely unveils her best golf. She won the season opener a year ago at the Pure Silk Bahamas and again finds herself with a share of the lead after the season’s first round.

“I just feel like I’m refreshed and ready to go. I try and bring the mentality with me all the time every time I try and play, but for some reason it shines brighter the first event of the season,” Korda said. “I honestly don’t know what it is about it, but I’m just happy to be back.”

Korda and fellow playing partners – Sandra Gal and Brittany Lincicome – were so worried about finishing before dark that they decided to play ready golf the last few holes and whoever was ready went ahead and hit their shot so they didn’t have to worry about getting up in time to finish their holes at 7:30 AM when the horn blows Thursday morning.

Play to resume tomorrow: For those player not completing their rounds on Wednesday, the resumption of round one will begin at 7:30 a.m. on Thursday morning.
Round two starting times will begin as scheduled at 7:30 a.m off of the 1st and 10th tees.

Europe... Underdogs at Solheim? Eight months out and the European team, winners of the last two Solheim Cups, is already trumpeting the underdog card. Even after Spain and Sweden finished No. 1 and 2 at the International Crown last summer and dominated the Americans in 2013 on U.S. soil in Colorado, Azahara Munoz, who has proven to be a match play genius over the course of her career, still believes the Europeans have a great deal to prove before September in Germany.

“Everybody says, well, you won the last two, but the Americans are still the better team. We are the underdogs,” Munoz declared Wednesday. “I think anytime you go to Solheim we’re always going to be the underdogs, and we’re just going to give our best and hopefully get that.”

Her logic? Well, that’s rooted in numbers.

“I mean, if you look at the rankings, it’s really obvious they have – I mean I haven’t looked at the rankings but Stacy’s not No. 1 right now but she’s been No. 1 the last two. And they’ve got Lexi Tompon, they’ve got Cristie Kerr, they’ve got Paula reamer, they’ve got Morgan, Brittany Liniome.”

“Didn’t you forget someone?” Asked someone in the room.

“Michelle Wie, sorry!” she declared. “Michelle, which is even higher up than the other ones I said. But if you look at the rankings, they are the team to beat. So, I mean, we are still the underdogs.”

Ha Na Jang - from qualifier to first page of the leaderboard:
Despite being the 21st ranked golfer in the latest Rolex Rankings, Ha Na Jang found herself in the Saturday qualifer for this week’s Coates Golf Championship Presented by R&L Carriers due to her finish at Q-School. Jang made the most of the opportunity and earned her spot by shooting a 70.

“I played in the qualifer and it was very hard and windy so it made today an easy round,” Jang said.
Jang will be looking to become the first qualifer to win on the LPGA Tour since Laurel Kean at the 2000 State Farm Classic.

Ernst motivated by Solheim Cup: Austin Ernst is coming off the best season of her career in 2014, which included a win at the Portland Classic, but the third year player is looking for something more in 2015.

“It’s a Solheim year, we all know it is,” Ernst said.

Ernst currently sits in 15th place in the latest standings with the top-8 guarented slots on the squad. During the 2015 season points are worth 1.5 time more, meaning a solid 2015 campaingn would put Ernst right in the hunt.

“That’s probably one of my top goals for the year,” Ernst admitted. “I know I just need to keep playing solid golf. You can’t try to chase points or anything. If you play well, if you play good golf, all that stuff will take care of itself.”

What would donning the Red, White and Blue in Germany mean for Ernst?

“It would be unbelievable. I don’t know of anyone that doesn’t want to represent their country at the highest level, so that’s goal number one this year.”

No.1 scenarios: Stacy Lewis, Inbee Park and Lydia Ko could all reasonably end the week with the No. 1 ranking.

Lydia Ko will take No. 1 with a win regardless of what else happens. Lydia, with a win, would become the youngest No. 1 in men’s or women’s golf history. If Lydia finishes in solo 2nd, she will take No. 1 regardless of what Stacy Lewis does as long as Inbee Park finishes in a three-way tie for third or worse.

Stacy Lewis will take No. 1 ONLY if Inbee Park finishes 8th-or-worse AND Lydia finishes in a three-way tie for second or­ worse.

Inbee can lock up No. 1 with a solo third finish-or-better as long as Ko doesn’t win.

Numbers to know:
7 - Seven of the top nine players on the leaderboard are ranked in the top-25 in the latest Rolex Rankings 3 -Jessica Korda is looking to win her third season-opening tournament in the past four years (2014 - PureSilk Bahamas, 2012 ISPS Handa Women’s Australian Open) and is looking to become the first player since Kelly Robbins in 1998 and 1999 to win back-to-back season openers 5/6 - Stacy Lewis birdied five of her final six holes to tie for the lead at 6-under 2000 - Ha Na Jang will be looking to become the first qualifer to win on the LPGA Tour since Laurel Kean at the 2000 State Farm Classic 13- The par-4 13th has played as the hardest hole on the course at 4.508 17 - The par-5 5th has played as the easiest hole on the course at 4.814
