Feng wins Dubai Ladies Masters

Afp
Monday, December 10, 2012

DUBAI - Feng Shanshan proved her credentials as the Dubai Ladies Masters top seed with an emphatic five-shot victory in the season-ending championship of the Ladies European Tour.

At the par-72 Majlis course of Emirates Golf Club, the world No.6 produced her worst round of the tournament - a three-under par 69 - but that was good enough to beat the second placed Dewi Claire Schreefel of Netherlands.

Feng's four-day tally of 21-under par 267 was the lowest in the history of the tournament, beating the previous mark of 18-under par by Annika Sorenstam in 2006 and In Kyung-Kim in 2009.

Schreefel, who shot a tournament record 63 on Friday, closed with a 69 for second place at 16-under par 272, while Becky Brewerton of Wales moved to tied third place along with Germany's Caroline Masson (71) on 12-under-par 276 with the day's lowest round of 65.

Sarah Kemp shot a final round 69 to finish as the best-placed Australian at 6-under, 15 shots off the pace.
