CARNOUSTIE, Scotland (AP) - Defending champion Yani Tseng believes she will have to be at her creative best to master the links course at Carnoustie and claim a fifth major title at the Women's British Open.

The top-ranked Tseng tops the LPGA money list and is full of confidence heading into the year's fourth and final major after her victory at the LPGA Championship last month.

The 22-year-old Taiwanese player says "there are so many ways you can play this course - you can be aggressive, you can be safe, you can hit driver, you can hit iron. You've just got to use your imagination and hit creative shots."

Tseng was grouped with American Morgan Pressel and Ai Miyazato of Japan in the first two rounds, starting Thursday.
