Making History

Lin Xiyu wrote her name into the history books in December when the Guangdong native became the first Mainland Chinese player to win the country’s national championship – the Macalline Women’s China Open.

The US LPGA Tour regular closed with a round of even-par 72 for a four-under 284 score and a two stroke win. The victory for the 23-year-old, her seventh China LPGA title and first win since 2015, was worth RMB315,000. Xiamen native Liu Yan finished runner-up for the second consecutive year closing with a 71. Feng Shanshan, the World No. 22 and top-ranked player in the field, was two shots further back after shooting 71 and finishing even-par for
the tournament.
