The LPGA has always been dominated by a single player at a single time, and in the past few years it has been players such as Paula Creamer, Mickey Wright and Karrie Webb. However in recent years womans golf has become more competitive in the sense players are coming from all over the world and causing a stir in the both the rankings and tournaments.

The LPGA championship in Locust Hill country club in New York state is home to a luxurious golf course which was designed by Scottish Pro and Architect Seymour Dunn. The club has more than just golfing facilities with such facilities as Tennis courts, an olympic sized swimming pool and a fitness centre. However all the attention is based on what is happening on the golf course as it is experiencing some fine golf. Korean Chella Choi shot a 5 under par round of 67 to take her one shot ahead. There has only been one days play as Thursdays round was postponed due to severe weather which hinder what was happening on the golf course. Choi has never won on the LPGA tour and is sitting comfortably in first position as she carded a bogey free front nine to put her chances of winning her first LPGA tournament into high hopes.

There are five Americans and as many Koreans in the top 14 with an exception of England’s Laura Davies who carded a steady one under par to put her just four off the pace with three more rounds to go. The 49 year old who has won this tournament twice in her career is sitting tied for seventh along with Scotland’s Catriona Matthew.
