IRVING, Texas -- Angela Stanford gets to experience a first in her 13 seasons on the LPGA Tour. She gets to stay at home and sleep in her own bed during a tournament.
"It's great to be home. I'm glad the LPGA is here. You know, I spend most of my time all year telling people how great it is here, so it's nice to have the whole gang here," said Stanford, who lives in nearby Fort Worth and went to school at TCU. "It was a little odd getting off the airplane from Hawaii ... like the whole tour was following me."

KAPOLEI, Hawaii -- Suzann Pettersen won the LPGA Lotte Championship on Saturday, beating Lizette Salas with a par on the first hole of a playoff after Salas chunked her approach shot into the water.
Pettersen, the leader after the second and third rounds at Ko Olina, bogeyed the final hole of regulation to set up the playoff on the par-4 18th. The 32-year-old Norwegian closed with a 5-under 67, and Salas had a tournament-record 62 to finish at 19-under 269.

KAPOLEI, Hawaii -- Michelle Wie is hoping a Hawaii stop on the LPGA Tour will inject a little aloha into her game.
She's 91st in the world ranking after breaking 70 only once in 18 rounds so far this season. She's coming off a season-best tie for 41st two weeks ago in the Kraft Nabisco Championship -- after starting the tournament with an apology from Annika Sorenstam for being quoted as saying the former child prodigy hasn't shown the talent that initially made her a star.
