Golf Australia Express : Issue 5
UNSTOPPABLE world No.1 Yani Tseng defended her British Open Crown at Carnoustie to become the fastest player to secure five majors. Shooting a final-round 69 at the storied Carnoustie Golf Links she secured a four- stroke lead over American Brittany Lang after 72 holes. And at just 22 years, six months and eight days Tseng also became the youngest golfer in history to win five major titles. Tiger Woods had previously held that record, having won his fifth major at 24 years, seven months. Tseng entered Sunday’s final round trailing LET rookie Caroline Masson of Germany by two strokes. After a bogey on the opening hole dropped her three strokes back, Tseng made a birdie on No. 3 while Masson recorded her second straight bogey to put them tied atop the leaderboard at 13-under. A birdie on the sixth gave Tseng the outright lead for the first time in the championship and from there she managed to hang steady while Masson faltered on the back side. Tseng bookended bogeys on numbers 12 and 13 with birdies on 11 and 14. She headed to the 18th hole with a three-shot lead and capped off her impressive victory with a birdie on the famous closing hole at Carnoustie. Lang fired a 67 to finish second, while a huge roar went up around the 18th green as Swede Sophie Gustafson made a final-hole birdie for a 68 and outright third place. Korean Amy Yang finished 10-under in fourth, while Scotland’s Catriona Matthew, the 2009 champion, was 11-under, but double- bogeyed the 18th to fall back to nine-under in a share for fifth with the third round leader Masson.
