This will be the first of 5 tournaments to be held in Asia in the next 6 weeks.
This is tournament # 22 of 28 on this year's LPGA schedule.
Here are the key details:
Pretty impressive display of good golf by Feng Shanshan. The final hole of the tourney, par 5, and Stacy Lewis lays up to protect the lead of one stroke. Feng hits a sweet hybrid to the green, over the pond to 10 feet and drains the eagle for the win. She ain't much to look at, but Feng plays terrific golf. And in front of the home crowd, wow!
It wasn't a sweet or terrific shot, it was an underclubbed shot that got lucky and instead of bouncing back into the water fronting the green, bounced upward off a rock or a patch of hard dirt onto the green and hit the flagstick. Sure luck plays a role in every golf tournament, but that wasn't the sort of luck exemplified by a chip-in (i.e. "the more I practice, the luckier I get" sort of "luck"), this was just dumb luck.
