Feng finishes on top
China’s Shanshan Feng shot a two-under 70 in the final round of the Buick Championship on Sunday to secure victory on home soil at the Shanghai Qizhong Garden Golf Club.
Feng had been in excellent form throughout the tournament, breaking the course record with a seven-under 65 in round one (only for it to be bettered when Stacey Keating shot a 63 later that day).
She went on to card a five-under 67 in round two to take the halfway lead, and lead the third round as well after a 69.
“This is not my first time winning in China. I think this is my third time and second time on the LET. I’m really honoured to win my sponsor’s tournament,” she told the Ladies European Tour website.
Feng’s overall score of 17-under saw her win the tournament by six shots, ahead of runner up Hyeon Seo Kang.
Kang shot four birdies and a bogey to card her second consecutive 69 on the final day, after 72 and 67 respectively in rounds one and two.
Nicole Broch Larsen finished third on eight-under after following up rounds of 71, 74 and 65 with a 70 on the final day.
“I came into this week with not my best game but I practised a lot and it went well,” said Larsen said.
“The first two days I didn’t make too many putts but Saturday was the perfect day. I shot seven under and holed a bunker shot and a wedge shot.
“It was nice putting myself in this position and today started with four birdies in the first five holes, which was really nice.”
Five players finished tied for fourth place on seven-under, while two were a shot back tied for ninth and three finished tied for 11th on five-under.
