GLADSTONE, N.J. (AP) ' Defending champion Suzann Pettersen didn't last long at the Sybase Match Play Championship, and neither did three well-known Americans.

Pettersen, the world's No. 3 ranked player, was eliminated 3 and 1 by Jodi Ewart of England on Thursday in the first round of an LPGA event. Paula Creamer, Brittanny Lincicome and Michelle Wie were upset by fellow Americans.

Creamer, the No. 8 seed, was beaten 2 and 1 by Jennifer Johnson, the No. 57 seed. No. 9 seed Lincicome was ousted 2 and 1 by No. 56 Ryann O'Toole. The 20th-seeded Wie was knocked out by No. 45 Mina Harigae 3 and 2.

Yani Tseng, Na Yeon Choi and Cristie Kerr, the world's No. 1, 2 and 5 players, barely advanced to the second round.
