| ||Another event that needed a playoff last year, the Safeway Classic was won by
M.J. Hur. The Korean closed with a seven-under 65 to get into the extra
session, then birdied the second playoff hole to defeat Suzann Pettersen and
Michele Redman. It was the first LPGA Tour victory for Hur. She has just two
top-10 finishes this year and both were in New Jersey. The first came at the
Sybase Match Play Championship, where she lost in the third round, and the
other came at the ShopRite LPGA Classic, where she finished two strokes
behind winner Ai Miyazato. This is the first event back in the United States
in just over one month, as the tour visited France for the Evian Masters and
England for the Women`s British Open. A very busy Golf Channel will have two
hours of action early on Friday, then coverage from 5:30 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.
(et) on Saturday and Sunday. The LPGA Tour heads out of the country next week
as Pettersen is expected to defend her title at the CN Canadian Women`s Open.
