Park excited for LPGA opener

The South Korean is part of a star studded line-up in Florida for the season-opener, with nine of the world???s top ten competing for $1,500,000 prize money. ????

Park will has been paired with reigning U.S. Women’s Open champion Michelle Wie for the opening round on Wednesday and expects the American to cause her problems.

“Michelle (Wie) played really good last year and obviously Stacy (Lewis) is playing steady for last few years and we’ve been competing for pretty much everything for the last few years together.

“If it’s like that this year that will be a really great season, but I think there are a lot of new strong players coming up to play.

“It was a very short off season, but I feel like I did the things that I really needed to get done, worked on the swing, worked on rehab, my body, worked on a little bit of few things here and there.”

Also featuring at Golden Ocala Golf and Equestrian Club??is??Cheyenne Woods, the niece of 14-time major winner Tiger Woods, as she begins her first full season on the LPGA Tour.

The 24-year-old won her opening Ladies European Tour event at last year’s Volvik Ladies Masters, with the world No 232 now looking forward to have a permanent place on the tour.??

“It feels great to officially finally be a member,” Woods said. “I’ve had the privilege to play a few LPGA events in the past, but to now be a member feels a little different, so I’m excited for this week and I’m excited to finally tee it up.”??
