TAIPEI, Taiwan (AP) — Top-ranked Yani Tseng is counting on a hometown advantage in the Taiwan Championship this week to win her first tournament since March.

Tseng won the inaugural event last year by five strokes, and wouldn't mind if the second tournament starting Thursday at Sunrise Golf and Country Club near the island's northwest coast comes with more than a breeze.

"The stronger the wind, the better I play," she said Tuesday. Tseng grew up in the area.

Tseng has struggled this year, but the. LPGA Tour's return to Asia this month has seen a lift in her confidence and results.
