Golf Australia Express : Issue 28
NOT EVEN plummeting temperatures, hail or rain could take the heat out of the scoring on Sunday at the RR Donnelley LPGA Founders Cup. Under stormy skies world No.1 Yani Tseng electrified Arizona’s Wildfire course shooting a back-nine 31 to finish with a 4-under 68 for the day and 18-under event total. It was just enough to secure her second LPGA title of the season. Despite heading to the final nine three shots in arrears, the 23-year-old Taiwanese Tornado reeled off five birdies in six holes to have the lead by two at 16th. She captured the win with a two-putt par from 45-feet in fading light at the 18th, edging out Korea’s Na Yeon Choi (68) and Japan’s Ai Miyazato (69). “I'm proud of myself,” Tseng said after securing her 14th LPGA title. “I hung in there on the back nine.” She said the suspension in play due to rain and lightning was a blessing that made her refocus and “restart” her round. The final round was a marathon for the leaders, taking more than eight hours as lighting in the area suspended play on three occasions for a total of three hours. Tseng collected $225,000 for the win.
