Two majors are scheduled to be played this week, one being the KPMG Women's PGA Championship at the Kemper Lakes Golf Club, the other the US Senior Open on the East Course at The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
The Women's PGA, the third of this year's five women's majors, features its three most recent winners, South Korea's Inbee Park who won in 2015 at the Westchester Country Club, Canadian Brooke Henderson who won in 2016 at Sahalee Country Club and Danielle Kang of the US who won in 2017 at Olympia Fields.
In a strong field that includes each and every one of women's golf's current top 100 money winners, none of these three is this week's favorite. In fact only one of them, Park, a former World No 1, makes the bookmakers top 10 lists.
The bookies have singled out as their favorite, Ariya Jutanugarn, youngest of the two celebrated Thai sisters who have been making big inroads into women's golf in the past two years.
Ariya, the first Thia women ever to win a major, tops the bookie's list at 8/1 followed by the USA's Lexi Thompson and Park at 12/1, Australian Minjee Lee at 14/1, Kiwi Lydia Ko at 20/1 and yes, Motiya, the older of the Jutanugarn sister, also at 20/1.
In the meantime Germany's Bernhard Langer, a former Masters winner and one of the all-time greats of senior golf - he will be seeking his 11th senior major this week - tops the Bookmakers list of favorites for the US Senior Open at 7/1.
He is closely followed by Americans Jerry Kelly at 15/2, Fred Couples at 8/1 Scott McCarron at 12/1 and the colorful Spaniard Miguel Angel Jiminez also at 12/1.
Defending champion Kenny Perry doesn't make the bookies top 10 but a number of tipsters have ranked the two-time winner of this event among their top five so watch this space.
