Yani Tseng to defend title at Ricoh Women's British Open 2012
Current world number one Yani Tseng is going to defend her title at the Ricoh Women’s British Open 2012, set to be staged from September 13-16, at Royal Liverpool Golf Club, Wirral, United Kingdom.
Tseng is being regarded as the hot favourite for the coveted title at Royal Liverpool Golf Club, Wirral, but the field set for the LPGA (Ladies Professional Golf Association) tournament is not easy as most of the prominent players have confirmed their commitment to take part in the tournament.
Tseng kicked off the current season with plenty of confidence and racked up three LPGA titles earlier this year, but she lost her momentum in recent weeks as she lost a series of tournaments. Even worse, the star golfer missed the cut in some of the recent events — something her fans think will take a serious toll on Tseng’s credibility in women’s golf.
The Taiwanese golfer is going to participate in the Kingsmill Championship 2012, which is set to be played from September 6-9, at Williamsburg, Virginia. However, analysts said that Tseng is keen on defending her title at Wirral more than anything else.
Although the presence of Tseng has given the Ricoh Women’s British Open 2012 some added excitement, the roster is packed with plenty of other key players such as Paula Creamer of the United States, Suzann Pettersen, Cristie Kerr, Na Yeon Choi, Melissa Reid, Laura Davies and Ji Yai Shin of South Korea.
Despite a strong field, Tseng will likely remain in the spotlight. She displayed a stunning performance in the last edition as she shot an overall 272.
“It feels really good.  I played really consistently today, and I just had fun.  But I was a little nervous before I teed off.  My stomach was hurting, and I feel really nervous.  But after the first tee I felt really good,” Tseng had said at the end of the final round of British Open 2011.
“I just needed to be patient today.  18 holes is long, so I just trust and play one shot at a time today. I feel like on No. 15, I had a 10-footer to save par which was really huge for me because I’ve been struggling with my putting this morning”.
