Yani Tseng was Up to the Challenge Presented by Prudential at the Wegmans LPGA Championship.
Rolex Rankings No. 1 Yani Tseng became the youngest female golfer in history to win four major titles, shooting a final-round 66 to capture the 2011 Wegmans LPGA Championship by 10 strokes.
Tseng, 22 years, 5 months, 3 days, already had the distinction of being the youngest player in LPGA history to win three majors by capturing the 2008 LPGA Championship, 2010 Kraft Nabisco Championship and the 2010 RICOH Women’s British Open. >
Tseng entered Sunday’s final round with a five-shot lead over Cindy LaCrosse and Morgan Pressel. After a bogey on the opening hole, Tseng made three straight birdies to increase her lead to seven strokes. Birdies on No. 6 and No. 8 brought Tseng’s lead to 10 strokes and when she made the turn, she held a 9-shot lead at 17-under-par. Tseng was chasing history on the back nine as she tried to match the lowest score in relation to par at a major championship, which is 19-under-par. Birdies on 14 and 17 helped her to tie that mark and Tseng missed a birdie putt on her final hole that would have given her the record.
