Agreed. I blame this one on the networks and not the LPGA. We know they were fighting to get it on TV as late as Tuesday of this week. Its a shame. What I cant figure out is why not at least stream it. Get the cameras out there and put it on LPGA.com at least.That is true and I will watch it, but the LPGA has to be kicking itself right now. Have you seen pictures of the course? It is absolutely gorgeous, the field is great and there hasn't been a live tournament on TV in weeks. I can't understand why they weren't broadcasting it in the first place, but then with it being Lorena's last tournament...wow, could they have screwed this up any worse?
Unfortunately no.Is this tournament on TV - if so where?
I believe it conflicts with the PGA coverage and they never seem to have both. Im not sure if they have ever streamed an event, but with this being Ochoa's last, I would have found a way.I think the LPGA is trying to do the best they can just short of streaming. Have they ever done that with a tournament before? I can't think of one. They have various videos up, their twitter is going crazy with updates, pics on their facebook page...
I am surprised they couldn't get the golf channel to pick it up?
Shin has won today in Japan. Suzann is 8 under so far for the day and is closing in on the leaders who are now just 4 strokes ahead of her. (suzann is through 13, leaders through 7) Lorena is currently in 8th place. Ai is tied with Stacy Lewis and Michelle Wie for the lead.Ochoa’s No. 1 ranking isn’t exactly safe

LPGA officials now have more definitive scenarios in regard to Lorena Ochoa finishing her career at No. 1. Now that they can factor in Jiyai Shin’s performance on the JLPGA, it seems Ochoa’s hill might be more difficult to climb.
Only two players in the Morelia field can oust Ochoa, but only if they win. If first-round leader Ai Miyazato wins, Ochoa would have to finish 10th or worse to lose the top ranking. If Suzann Pettersen goes crazy over the weekend and wins, and Ochoa finishes fifth or worse, then Pettersen is No. 1. That holds true even if Shin wins in Japan. Pettersen finished second here in ’09.
Now, if Shin wins on the JLPGA and Ochoa finishes 21st or worse, then Shin would be No. 1. If both Shin and Miyazato win, and Ochoa finishes fifth or worse, then Shin would be No. 1.
Ochoa has won the Morelia event three times.
