 This year’s Wegmans LPGA Championship was met with some wicked weather, but nothing compared to the thunder that Yani Tseng brought to the tournament. Many never thought they’d see the course record broken two years in a row, but fans nearly saw just that – Yani Tseng kept that dream going as she continued to increase her outstanding lead in the final round Sunday, resulting in an overall 19 under finish, tying Christie Kerr’s course record breaker from just the year before. Morgan Pressel finished in second place at -9, while Cristie Kerr, Suzann Pettersen and Paula Creamer all tied for third at -8.

  Although she may not have made history by breaking the course record, Tseng’s win clenched her fourth LPGA Major, which did make her the youngest player to reach such a feat at only 22 years old. But to many, this comes as no surprise. Tseng, a fourth year tour member, has clearly been making her mark. Currently No. 1 in the Rolex rankings, she was hot off her win at the LPGA State Farm Classic in Springfield, IL, just two weeks prior. The win at Locust Hill marks her eighth career win and her third of the tour’s season. Since joining the tour, she has led or co-led nine times going into the final round. Some wonder if her rise to the top and growing trophy collection is somehow a result of a kindred spirit connection – Tseng lives in the former home of LPGA great Annika Sorenstam. Coincidence or not, there is no denying that Tseng is well on her way to becoming one of the most memorable golfers in history.

Next up for the LPGA is the Women’s Open, which is being held at the Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, CO, July 7-10. For Yani Tseng, a title win would secure a career Grand Slam.

Last time I played Oak Valley was years ago when Chuck Stevens was still at Novi and I had renletcy relinquished the golf coach position. It was quite enjoyable but I don't remember much about it anymore (I used to be able to remember every shot played at every course, now I have to struggle just to recall if I've ever been there). It could be a great place especially if you could get a discount round.
