The World’s Best Coming to the River Region
The star-studded field features Rolex Rankings No. 1 Yani Tseng, No. 2 Suzann Pettersen, No. 3 Cristie Kerr, No. 4 Na Yeon Choi, No. 8 Paula Creamer, No. 9 Brittany Lincicome, No. 10 I.K. Kim, No. 11 Stacy Lewis and No. 12 Michelle Wie. Tseng, who looks to capture her sixth LPGA tournament and ninth tournament victory world-wide this year, headlines the field which also includes two-time LPGA Tour winner and Navistar defending champion Katherine Hull, 2007 Navistar champion Maria Hjorth, LPGA and World Golf Halls of Fame members Juli Inkster and Se Ri Pak, all 12 U.S. Solheim Cup team members, and eight of 12 European Solheim Cup team members.

The Unstoppable Tseng
Rolex Rankings No. 1 Yani Tseng continued her domination on the course with her fifth LPGA win of the season at the Walmart NW Arkansas Championship Presented by P&G. The 22-year-old, who has posted eight wins worldwide in 2011, became the youngest player, male or female, to win five major titles in August at the RICOH Women’s British Open. In all, she has 10 LPGA victories in her four-year career. The forceful Tseng has held the No. 1 position in the Rolex Rankings for 30 consecutive weeks and she is poised to sweep the year-end LPGA awards. She currently holds the lead in the Rolex Player of the Year race (which she also won in 2010), the contest for the Vare Trophy for lowest scoring average and the LPGA money list. Heading into the Navistar LPGA Classic Tseng has a remarkable $767,835 dollar lead over Cristie Kerr on the money list, a 149 point lead over Stacy Lewis in the Rolex Player of the Year race, and a .76 stroke advantage over Kerr in the Vare Trophy contest. Statistically Tseng is top of the class in seven different categories including birdies, rounds under par, rounds in the 60s, top-10 finishes, greens hit, scoring and driving distance (268.4). Add a ranking of third in putts per green and regulation and Tseng’s winning formula is complete.

14-time LPGA tour winner and top-ranked American Cristie Kerr continues to be a constant presence atop LPGA leaderboards. Despite not yet winning in 2011, Kerr has posted a remarkable nine top-4 finishes this season including a tie for 4th at the CN Canadian Women’s Open and a solo fourth at the Walmart NW Arkansas Championship in her last two starts. She ran an incredible mid-summer stretch with five consecutive weeks in the top three – 2nd Sybase Match Play; T-2 ShopRite LPGA Classic; 2nd State Farm LPGA Classic; T-3 Wegmans LPGA Championship; 3rd U.S. Women’s Open. Kerr currently ranks second in birdies, second in the race for the Vare Trophy with a scoring average of 70.35, and
