In this week’s Stats and Stuff, Ward Clayton breaks down the Walmart NW Arkansas Championship Presented by P&G.

Yani Tseng’s two-year run

Yani Tseng has won seven times over the past two years on the LPGA Tour, including last year’s Walmart NW Arkansas Championship Presented by P&G, her final victory of the 2010 season. Tseng has won seven of her last 32 starts on the LPGA Tour (22 percent). This year, Tseng has won four times on the LPGA Tour and twice on the Ladies European Tour to begin the season, at the Australian Open and Australian Ladies Masters.

With her accomplishment of winning two majors in one season for the second consecutive season, she also joins a number of single-season, multiple-majors winners.

Below is a list of multiple major winners in one season and their season victory totals:

Arkansas‘ second-round leaders

The second-round lead is evidently not a good place to be at Pinnacle Country Club. In the tournament’s four-year history, no second-round leader has gone on to win. Final-round scores of 68, 64 and 65 have been necessary to rally from behind and capture the title.

Here is how the final round shaped up:

Year….2nd-round Leader(s)…..Result

2008….Meena Lee, Eun-Hee Ji….Seon Hwa Lee, one behind, shot a final-round 68 to win by one.

2009…Song-Hee Kim……..Jyai Shin came from seven strokes back with a 64 and won a playoff.

2010…Michelle Wie……..Yani Tseng came from three behind with a 65 to win by one.

Comebacks for Tseng

Five of Yani Tseng’s nine career LPGA Tour victories have come with a final-round rally. With last year’s victory at the Walmart NW Arkansas Championship Presented by P&G, Tseng had come from behind in four of her first five LPGA victories. In this season’s four wins, Tseng has held the lead entering the final round on three occasions. She came from two behind to win the Ricoh Women’s British Open.
