Luiten started with +5 yesterday, had an amazing round today with 7 birdies and no bogeys in the first 14 holes to bring him well inside the cut....only to finish the round with bogey, bogey, bogey and 1 stroke out of the cut :facepalm:

After last update of Olympic Rankings  :MEX Rodolfo Cazaubon is the new entry in 54th place, with :BANSiddikur Rahman dropping out of the top 60.

The Mexican Cazaubon climb 109 place and is now #269 in World Ranking after the Puerto Rico Open, and now Mexico have two eligible players (Carlos Ortiz #57)

 

The last in Olympic Men's Ranking is now Mardan Mamat :SIN (#353 in World Ranking) with Bangladesh player Rahman now #361 in World ranking (#61 O.R.)

 

:ITA have only 1 player (at now) Francesco Molinari #34 O.R ; instead in women's ranking we have two eligible players Giulia Sergas #46 O.R. and Giulia Molinaro #53 O.R. (#350 W.R.) but Diana Luna is close to her ( #357 W.R.)

So ANA Inspiration is already on to the final day! :clap:

 

Lexi Thompson is leading the tournament with -10 and will start the last pair with a surprising Ariya Jutanugarn (Thailand), which divides the 2nd position with world number 1 Lydia Ko and with world number 9 Inn Gee Chun (currently out of he olympics, she's the 5th Korean, but that would probably change with a good score on this major), all of them with -9.

 

Then we have a lot of good players very close to the top, with -8 to -5, so anything can happen today!

 

A great final day is expected for all Golf fans :d

Lydia Ko is the first major winner on 2016! :champion:

 

Regarding Olympic qualification, this results means nothing to the winner (she's number one :p), but it brings some changes to the two runner-ups of this major:
Charley Hull - climbs 16 (!!) ranking position and is now the 25th of the world;
In Gee Chun - climbs only one position but overcomes her korean team-mate Amy Yang, which means she's in the top 4 korean AND in the olympic qualifying list

 

Next stop: Men's Masters!!

:bowdown: Lydia Ko  becomes the youngest two-time major winner in LPGA history (1st was Evian Championship in September)

 

Will be a tough battle for the :KOR women, there are 4 tickets (if are in TOP 15) and Korea have 8 athletes, maybe only  Inbee Park (W.Rank #2) has a secure place at now.

 

:ITADiana Luna overcome Giulia Molinaro.

Korea is really strong in the women's golf, I don't think they will fail on sending a full 4 players team to Rio :)

 

And besides being the youngest two-time major winner in LPGA, she's the youngest double major winner in Golf (male and female) in 147 years!!! :yikes::yikes: (Previously winner was Young Tom Morris from Scotland, when he won British Open in 1868 and 1869)

The Men's Masters (one of the most important championships and my favorite major) started today!

 

Jason Day and Jordan Spieth (current champion) are probably the favorites to win, but all the best golfers in the world are playing so anyone can win! :d
