Laura Davies and Lorena Ochoa return at Safeway

Laura Davies shoots for yet another title at the $1.5 million Safeway International, which starts Thursday.

Davies won this event a record four straight times from 1994-97. A 20-time winner on the LPGA Tour, she has not won an event in seven years.

But Davies, 44, showed some real glimpses of her best form last year, winning a European Tour tournament in Austria.

“I did play very well last year and definitely think I could win again in the States,” said Davies, a native of England. “I came close a few times and it was just a pity that I didn’t manage to get another victory. But I’m confident going into the new season.”

Defending tournament champion and world No. 1 Lorena Ochoa also headlines a field that includes seven other winners of this event.

After winning her first event of the season in Singapore earlier this month, Ochoa finished tied for eighth two weeks ago at the Mastercard Classic.

Former world No. 1 Annika Sorenstam, Karrie Webb, Julie Inkster and Se Ri Pak also will tee off Thursday at the Superstition Mountain Golf and Country Club.
