Suzann Pettersen leads a star-studded field into this week's $2 million Sunrise Championship in Taiwan, continuing her quest to overtake South Korea's Inbee Park at the top of the LPGA rankings.

Pettersen, the defending champion, will be joined by American star Lexi Thompson and Taiwanese favorite Yani Tseng in the field for the four-round event beginning Thursday.

Even with a victory in Taiwan, the Norwegian golfer cannot pass Park this week. But a good result would set up a nail-biting end to the LPGA season.

Park is not competing in Taiwan.

Speaking of her bid to get to No. 1, Pettersen says "All I can do is go out and play good golf and try to win tournaments."
