Yani Tseng Continues Her Dominance With Victory At 2012 Kia Classic

Yani Tseng

23 of 27, for those who are counting. 27 is the number of points needed to qualify (point-wise) for the Hall of Fame as an LPGA player. With her win at the 2012 Kia Classic, 23 is the number of points Yani Tseng has accrued. Although nothing in sports is ever a given, it is looking as if 2012 is the year Yani will earn the requisite points. However, she will need to wait until she has played on tour 10 seasons before she can official go in. Honestly, my feeling was Yani had the Kia Classic locked up after 3 rounds. I figured 14 or 15 under was what the players chasing her needed and I couldn’t see that happening with the weather conditions are they were. Beyond that, seeing Yani at the top of the leaderboard is getting to be like seeing Annika at the top of the leaderboard in her prime. I just didn’t think anybody would make a serious charge. She is at the point where she can freeze the field simply with her presence atop the leaderboard. If she sprints out to a lead after the first or second round at the Kraft Nabisco Championship, will anybody stand up to the challenge?

    • I completly agree with you. But the leaderboard I use is copy and paste…it’s from the another source that uses the olympic flag
