Yani Tseng leads Tour in Birdies

Yani Tseng's thoughts on leading the LPGA Tour in Birdies.

"I'm very proud to lead the birdie stats category because my goal going in to each year is to be a birdie machine! I wanted to set a goal that allowed me to focus on the moment. Of course we all strive to reach goals like being the #1 player in the world ranking or tops on the money list, but those don't necessarily allow you to focus on each hole as you play it. I know that if my main focus is making birdie on each hole, and I'm successful at that, then the bigger picture goals will take care of themselves."
