Golf Australia Express : GA Express 211
A TIE For 36th is rarely a reason to celebrate, but that result at the Manulife LPGA Classic looks like being enough for Tiger Woods’ niece Cheyenne Woods to stay on the LPGA Tour next year. Woods, who has come through Q School the last two years, sat in 100th spot on the money list prior to the Manulife, but moved up to 97th after pocketing a little over $9000 for one of her best results of the year. WORLD No.1 Lydia Ko this week returns to the scene of her first major triumph – last year’s Evian Championship. And what a year it’s been. While the Kiwi missed out on Olympic gold, she’s casually netted a second major and won four times on the LPGA Tour to prove she’s the real deal and pencil herself in for a couple of decades of dominance. She’ll almost certainly start as favourite to win the Evian Championship, and rightly so. IF YOU wanted proof of how consistently outstanding Lydia Ko has been this season, look no further than the woman who sits just behind her in the world rankings. Ariya Jutanugarn was an unknown entity at the start of 2016, having done very little last year in her first full LPGA Tour season, which included a run of 10 missed cuts in a row. This year she’s won five times, including three in a row earlier in the season, as well as back to back victories in the last six weeks. And yet still she's ranked No.2 . IF CAROLINE Masson’s victory at last week’s Manulife LPGA Classic taught us anything, it’s that nothing should surprise us. Here’s a player who had never won on the LPGA Tour, from a country that hadn’t been on the winner’s list since 2011, starting three shots back on the final day. Yet both of those unwanted streaks are now in the past and she’ll start the Evian Championship as the tour’s most recent winner. As Masson said herself: “Golf is a funny game.” RELIEF FOR WOODS KO COULD BE THE GOAT IF KO’S HOT, JUTA'S HOTTER EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED
