LPGA Rewind: Tseng wins Wegmans LPGA Championship

LPGA Rewind: Tseng wins Wegmans LPGA Championship

Rolex Rankings No. 1 Yani Tseng became the youngest female golfer in history to win four major titles, shooting a final-round 66 to capture the 2011 Wegmans LPGA Championship by 10 strokes.

Tseng, 22 years, 5 months, 3 days, already had the distinction of being the youngest player in LPGA history to win three majors by capturing the 2008 LPGA Championship, 2010 Kraft Nabisco Championship and the 2010 RICOH Women’s British Open.

Tseng captured the win on Sunday at the Wegmans LPGA Championship but there were a number of Americans that finished near the top of the leaderboard. Five of the top-10 finishers were from the U.S.A. and that’s significant since points for the U.S. Solheim Cup team were doubled this week.

Suzann Pettersen made a final-round push as she shot a 5-under 67 to finish in a tie for third with Cristie Kerr and Paula Creamer. Pettersen, who won the LPGA Championship in 2007, recorded six birdies and one bogey in her final round.
