"I think this year is really, really competitive," Ariya Jutanugarn, who is ranked third in both earnings and points for player of the year, said Wednesday at an event in Wisconsin. "Even when I played great golf in a few weeks, I still finish second or third. But it's fun. It's more fun because a lot of girls start to play so good and they become amazing golfers."
"The greens here are really hard to read, the speed, everything," said Jutanugarn, a five-time winner last season. "Cristie hit some really good putts, but they just didn't go in. ... My tee shot was pretty good all day, I just have to work on my putting."
