It's been a long time since the Hall of Famer's been in the hunt on the weekend of an LPGA event, but she's positioning herself for a shot at winning her 25th tour event this weekend at the State Farm Classic.
Pak, 31, hasn't recorded a top-10 finish in an LPGA event in almost 10 months, since she finished second at the CN Canadian Women's Open last August. But, she found something in the second round of the Corning Classic in her last start, shooting 66, her lowest score on tour in 108 rounds, since she opened with a 63 at the Jamie Farr Owens Corning Classic in 2007. That, by the way, was her last LPGA victory.
Bulle Rock, next week's site of the McDonald's LPGA Championship, is home to Pak's last major championship triumph. Three of her five major championship titles have come at the McDonald's.
