Brozer won't be under radar here

Normally, Kim Brozer would quietly go about her business on the LPGA tour with little fanfare.

But as a Canadian, this isn't a normal LPGA event.

"It's a very exciting thing playing in the province that I live in now," Brozer said.

"I enjoyed playing in London, Ont., last year, but it's very exciting being out west, so I'm looking extremely forward to the week."

Originally from Yorkton, Sask., Brozer now calls Red Deer home.

Yesterday the former four-time Saskatchewan Amateur Champion took part in the Women's Pro-Am event.

She'll be one of a handful of Canadians playing in the tournament.

"I would think for the girls at the top of the money list that are Canadians I'm sure there are demands on them all week long," Brozer said.

"But, not so much for me. Because I've been away I haven't played much on tour at all.

"But I'm looking forward to being out here and the support you get being out here is always really cool."

Brozer first joined the tour in 1999, but didn't regain her status for the following season.

She was able to earn non-exempt status for this season, but has only played in one event.

"I'm looking forward to having my family come watch me play, because it's my birthday week, too," said Brozer, who turns 38 as the tournament opens Thursday.

"They haven't seen me play that much through the course of my career so it's going to be fun.

"I think my game is coming around. I guess we'll see.

"Some days are better than others and I think with a little rest I'll be good."
