Tseng Wins Sixth Title this Year


Yani Tseng closed with a 5-under 67 to win her sixth LPGA Tour title of the year. The 22-year-old from Taiwan only solidified her position as the No. 1-ranked player in the world, beating Na Yeon Choi by a stroke in the LPGA Hana Bank Championship. Choi of South Korea had won the previous two titles in the $1.8 million event.

Tseng finished at 14-under 202 on the Sky 72 Golf Club's Ocean Course in Incheon, South Korea. "It was very tough out there," Tseng said. "Na Yeon Choi was playing so good today. I really enjoyed it out there. It's not easy. I tried to focus on every shot, every hole."

The victory was worth $270,000, pushing Tseng's season's earnings to $2,396,838. She has 11 victories in only four seasons on the LPGA Tour.

Choi, the 2009 and 2010 winner, shot a 68 that included a birdie on the final hole in front of what was essentially a hometown gallery. "The crowd is amazing," Tseng marveled. "When Na Yeon makes birdie, it was like a huge crowd, and I think it's the first time in my life I saw that many people on a golf course."

Brittany Lincicome (66), Jimin Jang (68) and second-round leader Soo-Jin Yang (71) tied for third at 11 under.
