Unlike the men’s match play event, which rarely has all the top players advancing into the later rounds, the women’s match play event has a terrific group still standing in the quarterfinals. Here are the on-going matches:

Lorena Ochoa
Sophie Gustafson

Michelle Wie
Brittany Lincicome

Karrie Webb
Paula Creamer

Annika Sorenstam
Juli Inkster

As of 2:30pm EDT, Ochoa and Creamer and Sorenstam are all 2 or 3 up, but Michelle Wie is 3 down with 8 to play. Live scoring here.

UPDATE: Ochoa v. Lincicome and Creamer v. Inkster will be the semifinal matches starting in the morning on Sunday.

The Sorenstam/Inkster match was great, going down to the last hole All Square. Inskter played amazingly down the stretch after being 2 down with 5 to play. She made birdies on four of the final five holes, just barely missed birdie on the other fifth, and drained a short putt for birdie to win on 18 after Annika’s birdie put slid by moments earlier.

Based on her play today, I’d make Inkster the favorite tomorrow, though I’m alwasy rooting for the Pink Panther.
