Imagine winning a golf tournament where a victory gets you a Tiffany & Co. crown placed upon your head.Two years ago, at the inaugural LPGA UL International Crown golf tournament in Owings Mill, Maryland, the Spanish team of Belen Mozo, Carlota Ciganda, Azahara Munoz and Beatriz Recari wore the crowns with pride after capturing all four of their singles matches on the final day to win by a total of four points.The tournament came to be with the intention of giving the best players in the world the opportunity to represent their country, since the Solheim Cup only allows qualifying players from Europe and the United States to participate.This year, the biennial tournament will take place in Chicago at the Merit Club on July 21-24. For golf fans, this is a great opportunity to see sportsmanship mixed in with national pride.To help you become acquainted with the tournament, here is a list of what you need to know about how teams qualify, the format, which team has the best chance to win and whos the underdog.How teams qualifyUsing the Rolex World Ranking system, the four top players from the top eight countries (determined by the combined rank of its top four) qualify. Countries needed a minimum of four ranked players to be eligible by the time rankings were published, which was April 4 of this year. This means even World No. 1 Lydia Ko will not have the chance to represent New Zealand.?FormatThe competition takes place over four days. The first three days are a four-ball competition where each match is worth two points for a win and one point for a halve. After the completion of the four-ball, the top four teams and one wild card team compete in singles matches. The teams will be reseeded based on how many points they earned in the four-ball competition and every team member will play in a singles match.The total points earned in the four-ball and singles matches will determine the winner.Teams playing in seed order1. South Korea: Sei Young Kim, In Gee Chun, Amy Yang, So Yeon Ryu2. The United States: Stacy Lewis, Lexi Thompson, Gerina Piller, Cristie Kerr3. Japan: Haru Nomura, Mika Miyazato, Ayaka Watanabe, Ai Suzuki4. Australia: Minjee Lee, Su Oh, Karrie Webb, Rebecca Artis5. Chinese Taipei: Teresa Lu, Candie Kung, Yani Tseng, Cheng Ssu-Chia6. Thailand: Ariya Jutanugarn, Moriya Jutanugarn, Pornanong Phatlum, Porani Chutichai7. China: Shanshan Feng, Xi Yu Lin, Jing Yang, Simin Feng8. England: Charley Hull, Melissa Reid, Holly Clyburn, Jodi Ewart ShadoffTop team pickSouth Korea has a strong team -- each of its players has had considerable success this year. Sei Young Kim has won twice this year and won three times during her rookie season in 2015. In Gee Chun is in her rookie year but has five top-three finishes. Amy Yang has five third-place finishes this year, her latest being at the U.S. Womens Open. So Yeon Ryu has played steadily all year with six top-10 finishes. All of these players are ranked inside the top 12 in the world.The underdogEngland might be last in the lineup, but the team has players experienced in match play settings. Of the four players, Charley Hull, Melissa Reid and Jodi Ewart Shadoff all have represented England in the Solheim Cup.Match play requires a different type of mental toughness than stroke play since it consists of individual holes won, not the total of strokes. So while a player might shoot 80 had she kept score, she could still win the match based on if she wins more holes than her opponent.Hull and Reid have played in two Solheim Cups, while Shadoff has played in one. Each of them have played on teams together when Europe won, so their experience of playing golf in a team setting and in match play will work in their favor.In addition, match play has seen major upsets when unexpected players rise to the occasion. Two years ago, Spain was ranked fifth going into the tournament and prevailed. Anything can happen.The International Crown is a fantastic event for the LPGA because it adds an element of surprise and drama that regular individual stroke play does not. So please, no emails chastising me if England loses and you put money on it to win! I warned you: This will be an exciting tournament. Dolphins Jerseys Store .
