LPGA Tour Gathers in Oklahoma


2007 SemGroup ChampionshipBROKEN ARROW, Oklahoma -- This week's event was previously known as the Williams Championship (2001-02) and the John Q. Hammons Hotel Classic (2003-06) and is now the SemGroup Championship presented by John Q. Hammons.
Last October, Cristie Kerr shot a career-low and tournament-record 61 on Saturday, then held off Annika Sorenstam on Sunday to win by two shots for her third victory of the season.
Holding off Sorenstam at this event is usually no easy task. She won three times in six years, including back-to-back victories in 2004 and '05. But Sorenstam is still recovering from a serious back injury, and will not be in the field this week.
Neither will Silvia Cavalleri, the surprise winner of last week's Corona Championship, although plenty of the top players in the women's game will be on hand, including new No. 1 Lorena Ochoa.
Next week is the Michelob Ultra Open, where Karrie Webb smashed the tournament scoring record last year on the way to a seven-shot win.
