Park won the LPGA Texas Classic earlier this year but went on to miss three cuts and tied for 61st last week in Arkansas. She has switched putters and says she feels more comfortable.

Defending champion Brooke Henderson is tied for second place with Brittany Altomare, Jaye Marie Green and Jessica Korda.

Korda, who has five Tour titles under her belt and would like to win a major tied for fourth at the ANA Inspiration and missed the cut at the U.S. Women's Open but feels good about her chances this week.

''Oh, It was great,'' said Korda. ''Finally, a golf course that benefits the long-hitters. The last couple weeks it's definitely been a lot of 3-woods or even 4-irons off the tees, so this is really, really nice.''
