Shanshan Feng's friends like to call her Jenny. They might start calling her champ.The 22-year-old Feng, the only player from mainland China on the LPGA Tour, won the LPGA Championship on Sunday to become the first Chinese player to win an LPGA Tour title and a major event, closing with a 5-under 67 for a two-stroke victory.
"I still can't believe it," Feng said. "I think after this week it's going to give me a lot more confidence. I believe I can win again in the future, and hopefully it's going to help golf in China because I want to be ... like a model that the other juniors can follow my steps."Feng had the lowest round of the tournament at the right time and finished at 6-under 282.
Stacy Lewis, bidding to win her third straight stroke-play event on the LPGA Tour, shot a 70 to tie for second with Mika Miyazato, Suzann Pettersen and third-round leader Eun-Hee Ji. Miyazato shot 69, Pettersen 70, and Ji 72.
Karrie Webb, who started the day one shot behind Ji, had a 72 to finish at 3 under. Little-known Gerina Piller, a star in college at UTEP, and Ai Miyazato each shot 68 to also finish at 3 under.
Paula Creamer had a 71, and Giulia Sergas and Inbee Park shot 72 to finish another shot back.
Defending champion Yani Tseng of Taiwan had a closing 76 and was 13 over in a tournament she won a year ago by 10 shots.
Feng, who began the day three shots behind Ji, had a bogey-free round to etch her name in the record books, and her fourth top 10 of the year moved her to fifth in the world.
"For me, I never thought, 'I must win.' I knew I was three behind (at the start), so I knew I had a chance," said Feng, who began playing golf at age 10. "I was focusing on very shot. If I win, I win. If I don't, I don't. It just worked out."
