GolfWRX is live from the Kia Classic at Park Hyatt Aviara Golf Club in Carlsbad, Calif. This is the last event for players to tune-up their games before next week’s Kraft Nabisco Championship, the first major of the season, which takes place in nearby Rancho Mirage, Calif.

A strong field is headlined by Rolex Rankings No. 1 Inbee Park, Suzann Pettersen (No. 2), Stacy Lewis (No. 3), LPGA Rookie Lydia Ko (No. 4) and a resurging Karrie Webb (No. 5). Pettersen can overtake the top spot with a win this week, upheaving Park’s 50-week No. 1 reign.

In last year’s event, defending champion Beatriz Recari held off I.K. Kim in a two hole playoff to capture her second LPGA Tour victory. Both players are back in the field this week.

Keep an eye on the featured groups, which consist of Paula Creamer, Michelle Wie and Inbee Park (7:55 a.m. Thursday), Suzann Pettersen, Lizette Salas and Lexi Thompson (8:05 a.m Thursday), and Lydia Ko, Karrie Webb and Azahara Munoz (12:55 p.m Thursday).

    How refreshing! I have to give it up, there are a lot more interesting bags here than out on the mens tour. Wonder why that is?

      I agree. I reckon it’s because they are not paid by companies as much or as often to play their clubs so they get to play what they want. Kind of gives you an idea of what’s good at the moment.
