RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. – Yani Tseng faced more pressure than a player ought to face trying to win at the Kraft Nabisco Championship.
That’s what Stacy Lewis concluded watching Tseng fail to bring home a Sunday lead for the second consecutive year at Mission Hills Country Club.
“Yani’s got a ton of pressure on her,” said Lewis, who came from two behind to overtake Tseng and win at Kraft last year. “The media, from all the writings and everything, they basically gave Yani the tournament. They did that last year, too. I think that’s a lot of pressure for somebody, because she’s still got to go out there and play a hard golf course. So, I mean, I can’t say I’m surprised. I couldn’t imagine having that pressure.”
Tseng was tied for the lead going into Sunday but closed with a 73, tying for third.
