China’s Shanshan Feng made a move in the Rolex Rankings this week moving up three spots to No. 4 with her win at the CME Group Titleholders in Naples, Fla.
Feng outdueled a star-studded leaderboard for her third-career victory. Feng shot one of the low rounds of the day on Sunday with a bogey-free 6-under 66 to finish at 15-under 273, one shot ahead of American and third-round co-leader Gerina Piller. Feng takes home the Tour’s largest winner’s check this season with $700,000 and crossed the $4 million mark in career earnings ($4,057,656.50).
The win marks Feng’s second victory in her last four starts, and she finished the 2013 season on a string of solid performances. Her final four events included a win at the Reignwood LPGA Classic, runner-up at the Sime Darby Malaysia, a tie for eighth at the Mizuno Classic and a win this week in Naples.
