Oh boy, more links golf. 'Luv it. The course seems short for a links course. Hopefully it'll have enough danger to keep the scores in check. The forecast calls for showers and possible t-storms on Thursday and Friday. Saturday looks clear, but Sunday brings more showers.

Only 2 hours of coverage on Thursday and Friday. Bah. After the incredible first shot to last shot coverage of the Open Championship, this feels like a real letdown. At least they have 3 hours of coverage on the weekend.

Mi Hyang was wonderful last year, but she's been in rotten form so far this season. She's missed six cuts, including the last 4 in a row. Her best finish this season is 8th. I'm going to go with Michelle this week. She seems to play well on links courses. In-Kyung should also be in the mix.

Without see the scorecard for the ladies, Gullane plays up and around a massive hill, so some will be a fair bit longer, others of course shorter.
They also need to protect against the wind. It's unfortunate they bump up against the Senior Open or they would've gotten more airtime surely.

There better be wind this week, that's all I'm saying, I'm a fan of carnage lol  The men escaped the wind for the most part on the 2 link style course played over in Europe. :taunt:

Winds are forecast to be 12 mph on Thursday, with gusts up to 20 mph. They're predicting 9/15 (steady/gust) on Friday, 10/15 on Saturday, and 16/24 on Sunday.

'Should be a challenge.

Lot of LET players in the field, it`s nice to see some fresh faces. With that being said, I would have no issues with the camera`s following Annabel Dimmock, Carly Booth, Amy Boulden around all tourney, but I doubt that happens.

Carlota Ciganda, Charley Hull, Emma Talley, Sandra Gal, Bronte Law, maybe not winners but top of the leaderboard.

I`m going with Anna Nordqvist or Ariya.

LET--that means we get to watch Ann Van Dam (I hope).  She won't win it, but she's great fun to watch.

Looks like lexi pulled out off the Ricoh, citing events off the last year and a half and mental fatigue.  Hope she comes strong.

Hunh, I hadn't realized Mi Hyang's been having a tough time of it.  Hope this picks her back up then.  Although for defending just anything passable is great.

Hope this is good for MJ again too, always cheering for her.

I'm doing a wind dance too!  Want everyone to have a good time, but it's fun to watch them deal with challenges and tough spots.

Gullane looking good on the broadcast today, will be some interesting viewing. They seem to have got the wind that the men didn't seem to get a couple weeks ago.

Charley Hull playing well. Hopefully none of her mates snuck into the event to watch, lest she die of embarrassment.

In-Kyung, Amy, and Jenny Shin with the early lead after finishing their morning rounds at -5. Only 12 players in the first wave finished under par, though. The course appears to be playing tough.

Maybe they were referring to the Lenny Kravitz song, "R Ryu Gonna Go My Away".

LOL I was just joking about this with a friend in Scotland - they are playing Scottish golf coverage bingo. They do it during all the links coverage across the tours.
