The U.S. LPGA Tour says defending champion and formerly top-ranked Yani Tseng has withdrawn from the Kia Classic after missing her pro-am tee time on Wednesday. In a statement released by the tour, Tseng apologized for what she called ''an unfortunate mistake.''

Tseng says she was excited to compete this week to defend her title and attempt to regain the No. 1 ranking. On Sunday, Stacy Lewis ended Tseng's 109-week run at No. 1 when she won the Founders Cup in Phoenix.
