Norwegian Suzann Pettersen, who finished off the 2012 Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) in grand style, thinks that the 2013 season is going to be more important for her professional career, and she is ready for that.
Pettersen is one of the strongest LPGA contenders and boasts a stellar profile, but with the 2012 season over now, it is time to look at how the Norwegian star is going to tackle Asian rule.
From Inbee Park of South Korea to Na Yeon Choi, the LPGA lineup has diverse talent out there, and it has become somewhat challenging for the past winners and non-Asian contenders to make their mark.

Sine image building and media attention have been important on the LPGA Tour, players usually look for something big all the time and many previous top-ranked players have gone behind the scene lately.
Observers say that despite not being able to find a top spot in her 12-year professional career, Pettersen still appears to be going through a transition, and she is getting better by the day.
Although ups and downs have been common in her career, the latest back-to-back victories have helped the LPGA giant reshape her game.
