Feng rebounds in Malaysia
Shanshan Feng carded the lowest round of the day to take her sixth LPGA title at the Sime Darby championship in Malaysia on Sunday.
Feng came into the tournament on the back of a poor showing last week in her native China, where she failed to defend her title at the Reignwood Classic.
She told the LPGA website that the pressure of playing in her home country and attempting to hang on a title had been her undoing.
“Last week I was defending champion in China at Reignwood and I did really bad.” Feng admitted.
“So coming into this week, I had no pressure at all. Even though like this morning until like the 17th hole I still didn’t think I was going to win.
“What I was doing was just to focus on every shot and just try to do my best and hope that putts can fall. That’s all I did.”
Feng shot birdies on the fourth and seventh holes to finish the front nine on two under, but it was her performance on the back nine that earned her victory.
Four consecutive birdies from the 11th to 14th holes and an eagle on the 16 saw her card an eight-under 63 to finish on eighteen-under.
Thailand’s Pornanong Phatlum finished second on 15-under after signing for 70 in the final round, while Pernilla Lindberg was third on 14-under despite tying Feng for the lowest score of the round.
