With world No. 1 Yani Tseng in a baffling slide, the door is open for players such as Ai Miyazato, Inbee Park and Brittany Lang in this week's Women's Open.
Here are five players to watch heading into this week's Wegmans LPGA Championship in Rochester, N.Y.
Ai and Mika Miyazato should get plenty of support as the LPGA Tour wraps up its Asian swing with a stop in Japan this weekend.
Despite doubts over tournament numbers that plagued the LPGA early on in the season, the league is thriving, and this week's Safeway Classic is a must-watch.
Since tragedy struck Japan in March, Ai Miyazato has helped raise money through her foundation. Part of this winner's check will be donated to that cause.
The LPGA tour stop kicks off a three-week summer stretch on U.S. soil. It has attracted a star-studded field, with 96 of the top 100 players on the money list, including five winners from this season.
