  • The 2019 Marathon Classic kicks off on Thursday at Highland Meadows Golf Club.
  • Lexi Thompson is the consensus favorite (+700), but has a Brooke Henderson, Minjee Lee and So Yeon Ryu all lurking behind her at +800.

They say that if you wind up in second place, you are better known as the first loser.

Well, for the third time in four weeks on the LPGA Tour scene, one of my top published plays (minus the running Syun Hung Park wager that hit two weeks ago) finished as the runner up and I am hopeful this “always a bridesmaid, never a bride” run ends at this week’s Marathon Classic.
