Tseng pips Wie at the post
Yani Tseng outplayed Michelle Wie on the final day to win the P&G NW Championship at Arkansas’ Pinnacle CC.
Taiwan’s Yani Tseng picked up the cheque for 300,000 US Dollars after outplaying Michelle Wie on the final day of the P&G NW Championship at Arkansas’ Pinnacle Country Club on Sunday.
Wie was top of the pile after two rounds, three clear of Tseng in second, but could manage only a 69 in her final round compared to the victor’s six-under 65.
Tseng’s front nine was unspectacular, consisting of six pars, two birdies and a bogey on the par-five sixth.
But what followed was worthy of the title as she wracked up five more birdies on the back nine, moving to 13 under for the championship and pipping Wie by a stroke.
Wie failed to pick up a stroke on her outward nine, her one birdie being nullified by a bogey.
She did picking up three shots coming home on the back nine, although a second bogey on 16 hauled her back again and, in the end, cost her a second successive title.
Mika Miyazato of Japan came in third after shooting a best-of-the-day 64 to finish 10 under and South Korea’s Inbee Park was fourth, two strokes back after a 65.
