Shanshan Feng wins Blue Bay LPGA by 1 stroke

Shanshan Feng wins Blue Bay LPGA by 1 stroke

Feng Shanshan is projected to the world No. 1 next week when the new Rolex world rankings is released after capturing the Blue Bay LPGA title in Hainan Island on Saturday.

Sarah Jane Smith was the best of the three Australians in the field, with her one under total good for a tie for 14.

Not only does she claim the top spot in the World rankings, but Feng has now moved in to third position in the LPGA Tour standings ahead of next seasons finale - where any of the top five will be crowned the Race to CME Globe champion and win the $1million bonus prize with a victory. So I'm really happy about that, and I hope all the Chinese are going to be watching me and the Chinese can play golf.

For Feng, the Rio 2016 Olympic bronze medalist, it is the culmination of more than a decade of toil on tour. Her first coming at the 2013 Reignwood LPGA Classic.

"I really enjoy the moment and hopefully, this could encourage a younger generation in China to go for this sport". "A never-ending 2017, that would be great", she said.

Moriya quickly rebounded at the next, sinking a six-foot downhill putt for birdie as Feng missed a four-footer and had to settle for par.

"I was not trying to watch because I know that even I hope that she would make it. As long as I try to give myself a chance, I think it's a pretty good thing to do", Jutanugarn said of playing the last hole. "But she just missed it and now I've got a trophy in my hand".

For Jutanugarn, it marked her sixth top-5 finish of the year.

Last week, Park became the first LPGA rookie ever to reach No. 1 in the world, when she dethroned fellow South Korean Ryu So-yeon.

"Of course everybody is cheering for her".

"Given that today was actually very, very windy, I really held up ground, especially with my approach shots to the greens", Feng said.

Park was among a quartet of golfers to finish tied for third. "I have to think really positive". Who mixed in one bogey with two birdies over the front nine to turn for home at eight under for the tournament. "My body is holding up, which I'm really shocked at this point".

This is the 28-year-old's ninth win on the LPGA Tour and third of 2017 (only I.K. Kim has as many victories this season).
