Amanda Blumenherst
United States
Cathryn Bristow
New Zealand
Jane Chin

I am looking forward to meeting Lorena Ochoa and Jiyai Shin. They are the best players on tour right now and I love their composure on the course. They seem humble yet confident and professional.

I will love to meet Juli Inkster. She has so much knowledge and experience.
Tamie Durdin
(not a rookie but participated in rookie orientation)
Mina Harigae

I don't really have anyone in particular that I'm looking forward to meeting, but I am excited to meet new people. I see players on TV all the time and I want to see what they are like in person, on and off the golf course.
Maria Hernandez
Nannette Hill
United States
Michael Whan
Katie Kempter
United States
Juli Inkster. I'd like to pick her brain. I think she is just an amazing role model and woman.
Lucy Kim
South Korea
Does Annika Sorenstam count? She was the best and I hope she comes back so that I can beat her. (just kidding)
Cindy LaCrosse

Brittany Lincicome. I played with her in a couple Greater Tampa Jr. events and have followed her pro career.

Pernilla Lindberg
Lorena. Because she is the best player!
Lisa Meldrum
Gerina Mendoza

No one in particular - all of them to be honest. I'm sure I'll learn a lot from each of them.
Paola Moreno
This tour is awesome and I can't wait to start playing.
Azahara Muñoz
Lorena Ochoa. I have already met her but she is my favorite player and I would love to know her better.
Gwladys Nocera
I know most of the players, but I'm looking forward to playing with each of them. Playing with the best players in the world is always such a great experience.

Lorena. She is amazing not only as a player but as a person.

Lorena. I really admire who she is as a player and as a person. I feel she is grounded and takes a lot of time to step back and help those less fortunate.
