Match Play championships don’t always work out as far as television is concerned, with the favored matches often not materializing. But that’s not the case with Saturday’s lineup at the Women’s HSBC World Match Play Championships.
So far, the four top seeds are still alive: Sorenstam, Wie, Webb and Ochoa. And take a look at these marquee pairings for Saturday: Michelle Wie versus Se Ri Pak, current LPGA Champion; Karrie Webb v Pat Hurst; and Paula Creamer v Moran Pressel. Annika Sorenstam will play Brittany Lang, while Lorena Ochoa will face Mi Hyum Kim.
I’m keeping my fingers crossed for a Sorenstam-Wie showdown—they’re in separate brackets, so they could very well meet.
