I'm wondering if ANYONE is watching the LPGA this week but if they are, Paula Creamer was bogey-free in the first round. I'm hoping that she's making a statement that she's back.

Natalie Gulbis is only one off the lead. She sometimes folds by the final round.

Morgan Pressel is even in the mix.

We in the frozen North are watching. That's for sure.

I watched about an hour of the SBS of Friday evening.

It would be unkind to say that it was boring. Lackluster would probably be more politically correct.

The galleries on the course were practically non-existent.

Even when a good shot was made, which wasn't very often, only a brief smattering of applause was heard.

The announcers had a segment on the attempt of the LPGA to speed up the pace of play, which is now on a par with the speed of the Mendenhall glacier.

They had succeeded somewhat. While last year the average time for a round was five hours and two minutes, this year so far it was four hours and fifty minutes.

Patricia, according to the television ratings, the viewership in the frozen North is about the same as in balmy Hawaii, that is, dismal.

Paula Creamer is on the comeback trail! Wire-to-wire!

I agree with Anne that Natalie Gulbis has problems with the final round. That's something that Lorena Ochoa had to work out. Pressel also seems to choke a bit.

Cristie Kerr m/c'd?

Morgan Pressel is very dodgy down the stretch, showing that her learning to win in the amateur ranks didn't really help.

Paula Creamer did very well to get in contention and then build a lead. She completely blew her lead, and then got a very lucky putt on hole 17. It was just a hit and hope putt with so many breaks that it couldn't possibly be read.

She got very lucky and then paring hole 18 was a pretty easy task.
Although Creamer was very lucky in that putt, she should still be given credit, because when a player puts themselves in that position, it is possible that they can get that bit of luck, so fair play to her for getting herself in position.

Sometimes only one stroke separates the winner from the loser. That's why I try never to look at these contenders as such. They are all hard workers and it's sometimes more about the luck than the commitment or the effort.

Well said Stacy.
In Julieta Granada's case, she played very well and it could well have proved to be a winning effort if luck had been on her side.
