ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) At this point last season, Ariya Jutanugarn was finishing up a streak of three straight LPGA Tour victories, part of a stellar year in which she won five times and took player of the year honors shortly before her 21st birthday.

Her 2017 performance has again been consistently strong - but she's still without a victory as she prepares to defend her title this week at Travis Pointe Country Club.

"I'm not going to compare myself this year and last year because I think it's different," she said. "My feeling come here is different, everything is different. I just really want to go have fun and still try to improve my game more."
