believe--or try to believe--the things Rory Sabbatini has said recently about
Tiger Woods, you can't compete on Tour."

LPGA Rock Stars
The pecking order
of tournaments on the PGA Tour goes like this: major championships, top-tier
events (like last week's Players Championship) and second-tier competitions
(hello, PODS Championship). A similar division exists on the LPGA tour, and
last week the ladies played one of their marquee nonmajors, the Michelob Ultra
Open at Kingsmill, in Williamsburg, Va., which Suzann Pettersen (above) won
over Jee Young Lee in a playoff. Like the girls who play them, these
tournaments rock, so we've ranked the LPGA's top nonmajors on a tourwide scale
that employs, well, rocks.
5 Almost a major;
4 Gets Michelle Wie out of class; 3 Bigger than a Nationwide event; 2 Nothing
for Morgan Pressel to cry over; 1 Not even on Golf Channel
