NOTES:
The LPGA Tour remains in the Far East this week for the fourth of six straight events in Asia. This week's tournament is the inaugural Blue Bay LPGA in China and features only 81 players.

Four of the top-9 players in the world are in the field -- Lydia Ko (3), Chinese native Shanshan Feng (5), Michelle Wie (6) and Lexi Thompson (9). Feng won the Sime Darby LPGA Malaysia two weeks ago for her fourth LPGA Tour title. Wie returned last week after missing four weeks due to a hand injury, and finished tied for fifth.

This is the second event in China in the last four weeks. Mirim Lee captured the Reignwood LPGA Classic at Pine Valley Golf Club in Beijing in early October.

The LPGA Tour travels to Taiwan next week for the Fubon LPGA Taiwan Championship, where Suzann Pettersen has captured the title the last two years.
