Yani Tseng ready to defend title at 2012 Honda LPGA Thailand
The Honda LPGA (Ladies Professional Golf Association) Thailand is going to kick off from February 16-19 at Pattaya’s Siam Country Club, with Yani Tseng defending her title.
The field at Pattaya also comprises Michelle Wie and Paula Creamer, who are looking to start the new season with plenty of enthusiasm.
However, the major attraction is going to be the current world number one Yani Tseng, who racked up several victories last season.
Tseng was superb in the 2011 Honda LPGA Thailand, recording a 4-for-4 victory at Chonburi. She came off well and gained a 5-stroke lead over her nearest rival Michelle Wie.
The Thai star exhibited phenomenal performance and maintained a one-shot lead. She capped the final round by carding a stunning 6-under 66.
The victory at Honda LPGA Thailand was Tseng’s third straight victory.  
On the other hand, Michelle Wie will try to do her best to stop Tseng from inflicting another defeat on her, as she got involved in rigorous training on the practice range.
Wie came close to beating Tseng but she let a few golden chances slip, messing up her hard-earned position in the final round. She carded a modest 70.
Tseng knew that the victory did not come easily, as the roster last season consisted of leading players.
"I just tried my best and I know I had lots of confidence," Tseng had said after grabbing her third consecutive victory. "But with all the great golfers out here, you never know until the last putt drops in".
Wie appreciated Tseng’s flawless game, saying the Thai golfer deserved what she achieved.
She said, "Yani played fantastic. She played like a rock star out there. She made every single putt and zero mistakes. Congratulations to her".
Paula Creamer, who is struggling to get back on the victory track, will also be gearing up for the season-opening event. Creamer has been seeking a good performance in her crisis-marred career.
She had to remain off the course for months after she suffered a nagging injury. The Honda LPGA Thailand can be a good springboard for her new journey. She said that she recently worked on her putting and swing skills.
