Tseng finished in the top-10 in each of her first eight events of the season, which including winning three of the first five LPGA events. But after such a hot start, things stalled in a hurry for Tseng. In her next 11 events, she didn’t record a single top-10 and had three missed cuts which was triple the amount that she had during her remarkable 2011 season.
But just when it seemed that Tseng’s slump might prolong into the remainder of the season, she found a way to bounce back. In her final three events leading into the CME Group Titleholders, Tseng recorded three top 5 finishes. She finished third at the LPGA KEB · HanaBank Championship, third at the Sunrise LPGA Taiwan Championship and fourth at the Mizuno Classic.
With such a topsy-turvy year, Tseng was asked if she considers this to be a successful season or a disappointing one for her following that tremendous year in 2011.
“Successful,” Tseng said. “I still win three tournaments, I still have 11, 12 Top 10s. So maybe I can win this tournament, you never know. It doesn't matter the results of this week, I feel I still have success year.
Tseng then finished off her pre-tournament press conference with one of the classic lines of the day.
“I'm still World Number 1, so don't forget about that.”
