From the NY Times article “First Chinese Win on Tour Comes in L.P.G.A. Major” by Lisa D. Mickey (here):
Feng Shanshan of China was not the marquee player expected to emerge as this year’s L.P.G.A. Championship winner, but she was the one who showed the most resilience in the thick and punitive rough at Locust Hill Country Club.
Feng minimized her encounters with the gnarly blades, posting a final-round score of five-under-par 67 to become the first player from China to win on the L.P.G.A. Tour. Her score was also the lowest of the week.
From Wikipedia (here):
Shanshan Feng is a Chinese professional golfer who plays on the U.S.-based LPGA Tour. She is the first player from China to become a member of the LPGA Tour, which she joined in 2008. Feng has one victory on the tour, the 2012 LPGA Championship, a major title, in which she shot a bogey-free 67 in the final round to win by two strokes. She is the first player from China to win an LPGA major championship, as well as the first player from mainland China (male or female) to win a major championship. Her best finish in 16 previous majors was a tie for 22nd at the 2012 Kraft Nabisco Championship. With the victory, she moved from tenth to fifth in the Women's World Golf Rankings.
Feng was born in Guangzhou and started playing golf at age 10 at the urging of her father, who worked at the golf association in their hometown.
While still an amateur, Feng tied for ninth at the LPGA Final Qualifying Tournament in December 2007 to earn a spot on the LPGA Tour in 2008.
