2011 was a difficult year for the LPGA Tour. With sponsors leaving and the number of tournaments dwindling it was a challenging year for the best female golfers of the world. One golfer that made the best of a bad situation was world number one Yani Tseng.
Tseng had a year most golfers would trade a kidney for. At 22 years old she became the youngest golfer, male or female to win five majors when she successfully defended her British Open Championship to claim her second major of the season.
She accumulated seven LPGA wins and 12 worldwide victories and she has her sights set on more majors in 2012. Tseng has worked hard on her English and realizes that if the LPGA is going to thrive, foreign players need to make themselves more marketable. Tseng has done that and is an absolute joy for the media and the fans.
No player in golf has had a year like Tseng and she is poised to keep it going in 2012.
