"Our field is shaping up very nicely with the additions of these seven ladies," said Tournament Executive Director Andy Bush. "We are proud to feature one of the top international fields of the year."
Creamer won her first career event, the 2005 Sybase Classic, four days before graduating from high school. That victory put her in the record books as the youngest player to win a multi-round event. Creamer was the 2005 Louise Suggs Rolex Rookie of the Year. Now four years later, she has matured into one of the top players in the world. She is currently ranked fourth in the Rolex Rankings and has eight career victories. Last year was her best year to date, winning four times and finishing the year second on the LPGA Official Money List.
Tseng is one of the top young stars on the LPGA Tour. She earned the 2008 Louise Suggs Rolex Rookie of the Year award after winning a major title at the McDonald's LPGA Championship Presented by Coca-Cola and finishing runner-up five times. She finished 2008 third on the LPGA Official Money List.
Pettersen is currently fifth in the Rolex Rankings. In 2008, she had three runner-up finishes while finishing the year seventh on the LPGA Official Money List. That came following her career-best year in 2007, in which she won five times.
Kerr, the sixth-ranked player in the world, is an 11-time LPGA Tour champion. She finished last year 10th on the LPGA Official Money List, her fifth consecutive year finishing in the top-10. She is currently fourth on the 2009 LPGA Official Money List.
Stanford, the seventh-ranked player in the world, is in the best stretch of her professional career. She won twice in 2008 on her way to crossing $1 million in season earnings for the first time. She won the season-opening SBS Open at Turtle Bay and is third in 2009 earnings.
Now in her 18th year on the LPGA Tour, Alfredsson is playing her best golf ever. The world's ninth-ranked player had a career-best year in 2008, winning twice and crossing $1 million in season earnings for the first time.
Lee, a four-time winner over the course of four years on Tour, is currently ranked 10th in the world. She finished fifth in season earnings in 2007 and sixth in 2008. Lee was the 2006 ShopRite LPGA Classic champion during her Rookie of the Year campaign.
