Shanshan Feng

Shanshan was cruising to victory in the TOTO Japan Classic, teeing off the last with a comfortable three shot advantage at -15 under par. A wayward tee shot put her into the tree’s resulting in a double bogey six, and a one shot win at -13 under par, with a last round -2 under 70.

Shanshan said her recent good form started with her Bronz at the Olympics;

“When I was in Rio I didn’t set any goals but I knew all of the Chinese people would be watching so I made sure that I should be smiling whether I was playing well or not.”

“That really helped, because I think I had other mind sets, so I actually brought out my A-game again.”

“I finished 3rd and got my bronze medal at the Olympics and I really got my confidence back after that so I know that I’m still Shanshan and I can still win.”

Pushing hard all the way was Ha Na Jang, a final round -4 under par 68 getting her close to the leader, and in the end very close, finishing in second place at -12 under.

Tied in third at -10 under par were, best placed home player Kotone Hori, -4 under par 68 today, So Yeon Ryu,-4 under 68, defending champion Sun-Ju Ahn, -2 under 70, and Soo-Yun Kang, -1 under par 71.
