Pittsford, NY (Sports Network) - Shanshan Feng made history on Sunday as she
broke through a crowded leaderboard and won the LPGA Championship.
Feng's final-round five-under 67 was the low round of the week and got her
into the clubhouse at six-under-par 282. Several players had a chance to force
a playoff, but were unable to.
When then final twosome, Karrie Webb and Eun Hee Ji, failed to hole out from
the fairway for eagle at the last, the title was Feng's.
Feng became the first golfer, male or female, from mainland China to win a
Ji, the third-round leader scrambled to an even-par 72 at Locust Hill Country
Club to share second place at minus-four. She was joined there by 2007 champ
Suzann Pettersen (70), Stacy Lewis (70) and Mika Miyazato (69).
Webb, the 2001 champion, shot even-par 72 to end alongside Ai Miyazato (68)
and Gerina Piller (68).
