Tseng Wins, Captivates Fans At Home In Taiwan Tournament
Taiwan's Yani Tseng knows how throw a party! Tseng captured her seventh LPGA Tour victory of the 2011 season at the inaugural Sunrise LPGA Taiwan Championship at Sunrise Golf & Country Club in Yang Mei, Taoyuan, Taiwan.
The top-ranked woman golfer in the Rolex Rankings carded a final-round six-under 66 to finish at 16-under par to win at home in front of record crowds. Tseng won by five strokes over Spain's Azahara Munoz and Amy Yang of South Korea in the October event.
Going into the final round, Tseng held a two-stroke lead over Sweden's Anna Nordqvist, but the Taiwanese player recorded six birdies in her bogey-free round and held on for her crowd-pleasing 12th career LPGA title.
"It's incredible," said Tseng, who donated $100,000 to the Golf Association Republic of China after her win to fund junior golf in Taiwan. "I wish this year would never end ... I'm really happy what I did this year, and [I will] keep learning, get some more experience and try to make more history."
