Golf Australia Express : Issue 15
YANITSENG’S a winning machine. She’s won more events this season than she’s had hot dinners. And the 22-year-old just added another piece of silverware to her overcrowded cabinet—the Sunrise LPGA Taiwan Championship was Tseng’s seventh LPGA win of the season. As expected the Taiwanese Tornado was superb, closing with a final round 6-under 66 to finish 16-under par and record a five-stroke victory over Spain’s Azahara Munoz and Korea’s Amy Yang. With a runner-up finish here, Munoz—the 2010 rookie of the year—posted her second consecutive top- 3 performance. For Yang, the runner-up finish marked her second of the season and third of her career. Tseng held a two-stroke lead over Anna Nordqvist going into Sunday’s final round. While the duo exchanged early birdies, the Swede simply could not match Tseng’s dominant play and finished in a tie for 4th with American Morgan Pressel. Tseng has now won a dozen LPGA titles in three years. The five-time major winner said she held her latest win on home soil close to her heart. “I always try to do my best to win in this tournament because this is the tournament I really, really want,” Tseng said. “It’s the first time in Taiwan and I just finally did it. “I think it’s the biggest [win].” This season has been one to remember for the world No.1. “It’s incredible. I wish this year would never end. I wish I could win more tournaments.” Following Sunday’s round Tseng announced she’d donate $100,000 towards fostering golf in Taiwan. “It is a long road to develop and groom a golfer,” she said. “I hope I can set an example so more people will follow suit to help chip in and contribute to this cause in an attempt to bring out more young talents.” OTG WHAT JUST HAPPENED ON THE LPGA WRAP THE FINAL STANDINGS 1 YANI TSENG TWN -16 $300,000 T2 AMY YANG KOR -11 $154,498 T2 AZAHARA MUNOZ SPN -11 $154,498 T4 MORGAN PRESSEL USA -9 $90,693 T4 ANNA NORDQVIST SWE -9 $90,693 6 KATIE FUTCHER USA -8 $66,182 7 HEE YOUNG PARK KOR -7 $55,397 8 CRISTIE KERR USA -6 $48,534 9 SUN YOUNG YOO KOR -5 $43,631 10 HEE-WON HAN KOR -4 $39,709 TSENG-SATIONAL AGAIN
