Don’t let her Number 26 ranking in the Rolex fool you this week at Mission Hills. Beatriz Recari comes into the LPGA’s first major of the year on a roll, and needs to to be considered as a solid pick to win her first major at The Kraft Nabisco Championship.
The 27 year old from Pamplona, Spain has been on a mission since missing her last cut, 27 events ago at 2011 Navistar LPGA Classic, while she has played in all 27 events, and has made every cut. She picked up a win two weeks ago at The Kia Classic, and has picked up a new nickname, “The Iron Woman“. She started off the 2013 season with two top-4 finishes in the first two events and was the least surprised person when she earned her second-career victory at the tour’s last event at the Kia Classic.
“I honestly feel the same,” said Recari. “You know, I think I knew early in the year when, you know, in my first tournament I finished tied for fourth, in Thailand I finished tied for third. So I knew that my game was better than what my Rolex Rankings number said or anything.”
“I don’t feel that much difference,” said Recari. “Just want to keep on building on this momentum and feeling and hopefully get some more wins.”
Beatriz Recari is in her fourth year on the LPGA Tour, and will be looking for her first major championship trophy on Sunday afternoon along with her first dip in Poppie’s Pond . I think the young Spaniard would be a great pick to get it done this week.
