Choi, Tseng to tee off today at LPGA ThailandPATTAYA, Thailand - World number one Yani Tseng will be looking to reignite her winning streak as she defends her title at the Honda LPGA Thailand this week after disappointment in the Women’s Australian Open.
The Taiwanese star, who won 12 titles worldwide last year and seven U.S. LPGA Tour victories, will be hoping to repeat her 2011 victory when the $1.5 million tournament tees off today at the Siam Country Club.
Tseng endured the horrors of quadruple and triple bogeys in her last two rounds in Australia to finish eighth, two shots off the six-way victory playoff won by U.S. teenager Jessica Korda.
Major contenders in Thailand include big-hitting Hawaiian Michelle Wie, runner-up to Tseng in last year’s tournament. Other leading golfers expected to be in contention this week are third-ranked Choi Na-yeon of Korea, and American Paula Creamer. AFP
