Beatriz Recari Leads 2013 Kia Classic After 2nd Round

Spain’s Beatriz Recari leads the 2013 Kia Classic at 8-under at the midway point. The runner-up for 2010 Rookie of the Year (to winner and countrywoman Azahara Munoz) looks for her 2nd LPGA victory, following the 2010 CVS/pharmacy LPGA Challenge. But things are far from decided as a quick glance over her shoulder will show players like Karrie Webb, Paula Creamer and Inbee Park hot on her heels, among a handful of others. Since this is my first Kia post this year, I thought I’d just mention how disappointed I am to not be able to see Yani Tseng defend her title this year. As most people know, she overslept and missed her pro-am tee time. By the rules, if that happens you are forced to withdraw from the tournament. Nobody is above the rules. Not even a potential future Hall of Famer like Yani. I was impressed at her being a stand-up person and coming to the event to personally apologize to sponsors and her pro-am partners, taking full responsibility. This is something that has happened to many players. It’s not unique to Yani. She is one of the most positive assets on the LPGA tour. She just made a mistake. I, for one, say forgive her and move on.

“I’m embarrassed to admit that I wasn’t feeling well (Tuesday) night and accidentally overslept and missed my tee time for the pro-am (Wednesday) morning. I was extremely excited to compete this week to defend my title at the Kia Classic and to try to regain the No. 1 spot. This was an unfortunate mistake and I want to apologize to Kia, my sponsors and all of the fans. The Kia Classic is one of my favorite tournaments and I have so many great memories in San Diego. I can’t wait to come back here next year.” – Yani Tseng
