Tseng falls in Match Play as upset theme continues
GLADSTONE, N.J. -- It's match play. Upsets happen. And they have at the
LPGA's Sybase Match Play Championship at Hamilton Farm GC.
The week's underdog theme continued unbridled Saturday morning in the
third round as Rolex Rankings No. 1 and top tournament seed Yani Tseng
was defeated by No. 49 Candie Kung.

Tseng, who scraped out tough wins in the first two matches, talked briefly through tears after losing 3-and-2 to Kung. Trailing 1 down through 14 holes, Tseng bogeyed No. 15 from behind the green to go 2-down, then lost on the par-3 16th when Kung made a birdie.
Kung will face No. 41 Julieta Granada in the quarterfinals Saturday afternoon. The other quarterfinal matches are Morgan Pressel (19) vs. Anna Nordqvist (26), So Yeon Ryu (13) vs. Vicky Hurst and Stacy Lewis (6) vs. Azahara Munoz (19).
