Yani Tseng indicated a few weeks ago that she wouldn't mind teeing it up with the men in a PGA Tour event if she had the chance.

That chance may be looming.

Golfweek is reporting that Sidney Wolf, the general chairman of the Puerto Rico Open, is prepared to extend an invitation to Tseng to play in the 2012 tournament.

The Puerto Rico Open runs March 8-11, it is what is referred to as an "opposite" event, one that is held the same week as a WGC event, in this case, the Cadillac event in Miami. Opposite field events are for players who aren't ranked high enough to earn a spot in the larger WGC tournaments.

"Having the No. 1 player here would open our event to a broader audience," Wolf told Golfweek.

Tseng would be following in the golf shoes of her idol, Annika Sorenstam, who played in the Colonial Invitational in Fort Worth in 2003. Sorenstam, the world's No. 1 at that time, missed the 36-hole cut in the PGA Tour event.
