My first. You only have a first LPGA event once.

The tournament I am looking forward to the most would be the Kraft Nabisco Championship tournament. Since I live in southern California, I always went to go watch it and wondered when I would play in it! I hope I get that chance.

(not a rookie but participated in rookie orientation)
U. S. Women's Open. I've never played it and hope to play it this year.
Mina Harigae

I am definitely looking forward to the traveling, especially overseas. I've only played out of the country twice and they were both great experiences. I really like sightseeing, so I am definitely looking forward to that.
Maria Hernandez
CN Canadian Women's Open. Because I played it this year and it was a great experience.
Nannette Hill

The first one! It will be a dream come true to play on the LPGA Tour.

The first because it will be my rookie year and first event as an LPGA member... something I have worked hard for!!
