Kraft Nabisco Championship (The Year's First Major!!)

After a very exciting start to the LPGA season, the LPGA will be staging its first major championship this week with the playing of the Kraft Nabisco Championship.

This will be the first of 5 major championships on the 2014 LPGA schedule.

Winning a major championship can go a long way towards achieving the LPGA's most prestigious season ending awards. Player of the Year points and Rookie of the Year points are doubled for major championships. Twenty-five percent will be added to the normal value of points rewarded for the Race to the CME Globe and its one million dollar first prize.

This will be tournament #7 of 32 on this year's LPGA schedule.

Here are the key details:

OMG, my company web filter

OMG, my company web filter has blocked your site! Just great.

Practice like you play. Play like you practice.

I don't normally hit a sand wedge 170 yards. But when I do, it's from a greenside bunker.

WHoa, Se Ri Pak?! I thought

WHoa, Se Ri Pak?! I thought she retired. I still like her. And So Yeon Ryu is still my favorite for this year. I see Wie is up there as well, but wonder how long she can hold it together.

Thanks for posting the leaders.

Kraft

I watched a bit of this on Saturday and Sunday. Unfortunately, when Lexi posted a couple of quick birdies on the front 9, it turned into match play and Michelle Wie couldn't make up ground, she was getting pars where she needed birdies. Putting let her down.

It's not how...it's how many

Great for Lexi. Was

Great for Lexi. Was rooting for Michele to pull off the victory but it wasn't to be. Both played well but Lexi really poured it on the final round. I know we'll see Lexi's name up there more, hopefully we will with Michele's too.

Golf is a game that can only be played...
