Last year, Paula Creamer hit an amazing 75 foot putt to help her to a victory in 2014. Can she repeat? There are many tough LPGA golfers right now, but she is our favorite again this year in Singapore.
Here are the projections for the 2015 LPGA HSBC Champions:
1. Paula Creamer – She has the potential to be one of the best players in the world. She is streaky at times though, but she has decent distance and when the putter is hot she can go low. Look for a repeat win this week.
2. Lexi Thompson – One of the longest hitters on the circuit, she is reaching almost every par 5 in two and has many wedges into the greens during the round. When her proximity to the pin with the irons is on she is hard to beat.
3. Morgan Pressel- Sure not the longest hitter on Tour, but very accurate. Will not overpower the course and make many eagles, but when she puts good she can win. Tends to compete best in the biggest tournaments, like the Women’s US Open.
4. Lydia Ko- This young phenom is taking the LPGA Tour and changing the entire landscape of professional golf. She has the laser like irons and seems to have the maturity of someone in their playing prime. Look for her to be competitive every week now on the ladies’ tour.
The LPGA Tour is as competitive as ever. The HSBC even this week in Singapore should be a fantastic event. Note that it starts on Wednesday night US time, so be sure to set your DVR’s to record it. Sometimes when these tournaments are in Asia they are missed, so be ready to watch at 11pm on Wednesday night. You would not want to miss a finish like last year!
