ORLANDO, Fla. – Yani Tseng will receive the Rolex Player of the Year award Thursday night at the Rolex Awards Reception at the Hyatt Regency near Grand Cypress Resort, marking the second consecutive year she has won the honor.
Tseng also will take home the Vare Trophy for low scoring average.
“They're different. Their games are different. Yani is probably the biggest hitter of the three. Annika was quite long at the time, too, but I look at Yani as a more aggressive player. Annika was a strategic perfectionist. She did everything by the book. She made a plan and she stuck to the plan. Lorena, I feel like she had a lot more feel. She had more that South American feel and look, and she was relaxed. It never felt like she was tense. But, you look at the three, Annika is by far the best one there's been, I think, even though Lorena has been fantastic, and what Yani has done so far is unbelievable, only being 22 or 23. It's hard to compare. At the end of the day, you count victories, you count points, so you can see, look at the numbers yourself, and draw conclusions.”
