Tseng claims narrow win

Taiwan’s Yani Tseng earned her second LPGA Tour win with a one-shot victory at the Corning Classic.

Taiwan’s Yani Tseng earned her second LPGA Tour win with a one-shot victory at the Corning Classic on Sunday night.
Last season’s rookie of the year, who won the LPGA championship as a teenager 11 months ago, held her nerve after surging to the top of the leaderboard in the closing stages at the Corning Country Club.
A five-under-par round of 67 – following up her sparkling 62 on Saturday – was enough for a 21 under total, one ahead of Paula Creamer and Soo-Yun Kang.
Creamer watched the final holes from the clubhouse after carding a second successive round of 65 while Kang looked set to force a play-off only for a bogey on the 18th, when she missed a short put, cost her dear.
Mika Miyazato could only manage a 70 to finish on 19 under while Song-Hee Kim, Ai Miyazato, Sandra Gal and Vicky Hurst were tied on 17 under.
