YOKOHAMA, Japan – Shanshan Feng notched her third JLPGA win of the year, shooting even-par 288 to capture the Japan Women’s Open Sept. 30 at Yokohama Country Club.

Feng, who won the LPGA Championship earlier this year, became the first player since 1997 to win major titles on both the LPGA and JLPGA tours in the same year.

She was also the only player to finish at even par or better in Yokohama. Feng closed with a final-round, 1-under 71 to beat second-place In-Bee Park by one shot. Ji-Hee Lee finished third at 2 over while Mika Miyazato came in fourth at 3 over.
