The LPGA this week comes to California, playing a 72 hole tournament at the Lake Merced Golf Club.

The Swinging Skirts LPGA Classic is a new event on the LPGA tour – it was added last year. Karine Icher set the record last year on this course, with a -6 first round. Lydia Ko was the winner however with 68-71-68-69 days, beating Stacy Lewis by 1 stroke.

There were really no surprises on this course last year – the top talent were all amongst the top 10 to no surprise. It was a very interesitng course and we are very curious to see if history repeats itself as only 14 golfers ended up under par. Even the ones that did struggled badly. Only 3 golfers actually went under par all 3 rounds.

Let’s see what we have for the betting odds and tips:

Swinging Skirts LPGA 2015 Betting Odds:

  1. Inbee Park: 11/2
  2. Lydia Ko: 13/2
  3. Stacy Lewis: 15/2
  4. Hyo Joo Kim: 12/1
  5. Sei Young Kim: 18/1
  6. Shanshan Feng: 20/1
  7. Suzann Pettersen: 20/1
  8. So Yeon Ryu: 22/1
  9. Cristie Kerr: 25/1
  10. Anna Nordqvist: 28/1

Interesting to see Inbee Park as #1, considering she came 4th last year and struggled twice with two +1 days. Which leads us to….

Swinging Skirts LPGA Betting Tip #1: Lydia Ko

It’s hard to bet against Lydia Ko. We’ve wanted to bet her every bloody week but the odds are too thin. Now she isn’t the favourite which is surprising. Inbee Park is playing some great, consistent golf but she’s playing every tournament it feels, while Lydia Ko is being more selective.

We know Lydia Ko had a really bad day out at the ANA Inspiration, but she skipped the LPGA Lotte and is now right back at it with the Swinging Skirts LGPA Classic. The youngster is well rested, and will be coming into this tournament confident after her results last year.

We’ll be backing Lydia Ko to win. Double unit bet.

Bet: Take Lydia Ko to take down the Swinging Skirts LPGA Classic tournament for the 2nd rime in a row. 13/2 available at Bovada for Americans.

Betting Tip #2: Jenny Shin

Shin has played in 9 events this year but hasn’t cracked the top 5. Her best finish was at the ISPS Handa where she came 4th.

However she’s still looked solid out there, and most importantly last year she played some excellent golf here. She hit 3 68s in 4 days, and only a poor round 2 hurt her.

We think based on her form here, she’s worth a slight bet. Only a half unit bet, or if you are conservative go for a quarter unit bet.

Bet: Jenny Shin E/W – 50/1 at http://www.GTBets.com.

SWINGING SKIRTS RESULTS & ANALYSIS:

Boy was that close.

Going into the final round, we were starting to sweat. Thankfully Lydia Ko took the Swinging Skirts down in spectacular fashion, in a playoff.

Special Note to Americans: The majority of my bets rely on each-way betting which is an insurance bet on the golfer to place in the top 5. Unfortunately no American sportsbooks offer that option. I recommend betting at Bovada where you can choose to bet "To Win" and also "Top 5". Split your bet over both of those. Plus get $250 in Free Bets - Only available at Bovada.
