Annika’s streak of 5 consecutive victories ended last week. Today, she’s taken a commanding lead at -13 — her nearest competitor Heather Bowie is at -7. Leaderboard here.

Other notables: Reality Natalie Gulbis is tied for 17th, at -2. 12-year-old amateur Morgan Pressel is tied for 27th, at -1. I got to see Morgan play a few holes today. If she develops the clear potential she has, she will be great for the LPGA tour one day. She’s got personality and spunk, something the LPGA needs a lot more of. There’s a bright future for the LPGA if the up-and-comers like Morgan, Michelle Wie, and Paula Creamer play up to their potential down the road. They will then join the currently rising stars of Lorena Ochoa and Natalie Gulbis on the LPGA tour as the next generation of women golfers. Don’t get me wrong: I love Annika, but the LPGA is really hurting for some drama and personalities that exist, for example, on the PGA tour. Or, perhaps a better comparison, the LPGA needs to be more like the women’s tennis tour, with the likes of Venus, Serena, Maria Sharapova, Lindsey Davenport, Justin Henin-Hardenne, Kim Clisters, and Jennifer Capriati.
