ANN ARBOR, Mich. – Shanshan Feng shot a 4-under 68 on Sunday to win the LPGA Volvik Championship by one stroke over Minjee Lee and Sung Hyun Park.

Feng earned her first victory of the season and seventh of her career. She led by one shot after a bogey-free third round Saturday, then kept the competition at bay on the 6,734-yard course at Travis Pointe Country Club.

Feng, a bronze medalist for China at the 2016 Olympics, led by four strokes with four holes to play, but she made a bogey on No. 16 and Lee birdied 17. Needing a bogey on the 18th to win, Feng easily tapped in for one and finished at 19-under 269.

Lee (65) made six birdies on the front nine, and Park (66) made four on the back.

Lee knew she needed a strong finish to catch Feng, and after her birdie on No. 17, she tried to reach the green on the par-5 18th in two. She missed well to the left and ended up near the scoring tent. Lee scrambled to make par, but Feng still had room for error as she was finishing her round.

 

Feng's second shot on 18 left her behind a bunker near the green, and her shot from there still came up short of the putting surface. When she did reach the green, she still had two putts for the win from a pretty short distance.

Lizette Salas (69) and Jeong Eun Lee (67) finished tied for fourth, two strokes behind.

Lydia Ko skipped this event but remains No. 1 in the Rolex Rankings. So Yeon Ryu and Ariya Jutanugarn each could have displaced her this week, but Ryu (72) finished tied for 56th at 3 under, and Jutanugarn (71) - the defending champion at this event - was 11 under and tied for 21st. Ryu had finished in the top 10 in 11 consecutive events, dating to last season.

Feng finished last year strong after her Olympic medal, winning twice to cap a streak of six straight tour finishes in the top four. This, however, was her first victory on American soil since the CME Group Titleholders in 2013.

Feng's most recent LPGA win before Sunday was at last year's TOTO Japan Classic, and the ending was similar. She took a three-shot lead to the final hole, then made a double bogey that was enough for a one-stroke victory.

Penalty for cart ride to restroom cuts Northwestern's lead

SUGAR GROVE, Ill. – Northwestern could have an even bigger lead at the NCAA Women’s Championship if not for a careless mistake by one of its players.

Sarah Cho received a two-shot penalty during the second round of stroke-play qualifying Sunday for taking a cart ride to the bathroom. That turned her 1-over 73 into a 75, and it cut the Wildcats’ lead from 10 shots to eight.

Another player in the group, Kelly Nielsen of Kent State, also was slapped with a two-shot penalty for the same infraction, but her score of 81 was dropped in the play-five, count-four format. The Golden Flashes are in second place.

Every player in the field is informed of the transportation policy – a player “must not ride on any form of transportation during a stipulated round unless authorized” – which is in effect all season. 

“Of course I feel really bad,” Cho told Golfweek, “because it’s a dumb two-stroke penalty, something I could have controlled.”

Though the penalty is unlikely to derail the Wildcats’ bid for match play – they are 20 shots clear of the top-8 cut line – it could affect whether they claim the No. 1 overall seed after Monday’s final round.

~For Thompson, inspiration, then domination

WILLIAMSBURG, Va. – Maybe Lexi Thompson should skydive into every LPGA event.

Thompson exited the Kingsmill Championship Sunday as spectacularly as she entered it. She was a commanding presence from start to finish in a wire-to-wire victory.

Five days after parachuting into the first fairway before her pro-am tee time with a Navy SEAL strapped to her back, Thompson left the galleries here gaping in awe yet again.

With a 6-under-par 65 in the final round, Thompson delivered a definitive answer to any question about how the heartache of that controversial loss at the ANA Inspiration last month would affect her confidence and momentum.

“I am always a very determined person,” Thompson said. “Every time I've tee'd it up, I have that drive to win, even more now.”

Thompson said family support was key to her regrouping and overcoming.

“I went straight home and I was golfing the next day, if not the day after,” she said. “I was so determined just to keep on working on my game, because I knew that [the ANA] was the best golf I have played. I just couldn't let it get to me.

“To have the support from my family and friends and all the fans, it was amazing. Without them, I wouldn't be here.”

Thompson said the victory ought to finally close a chapter on the ANA and its emotional aftermath.

“It definitely does,” Thompson said. “I’m so over it. It’s in the past. It’s unfortunate what happened, but it’s time to move on.”

At 20-under overall, Thompson set the Kingsmill Championship’s 72-hole record, surpassing the mark Annika Sorenstam set in 2008 by one shot.

 

Thompson finished five shots ahead of In Gee Chun (67) and nine shots ahead of Angela Stanford (66).

Thompson made her peers marvel.

“After ANA, she is still playing with a lot of confidence,” Rolex world No. 1 Lydia Ko said. “It’s hard to overcome those things, but it just shows what a champion she is and what a strong player she is. She deserved it.”

It was Thompson’s eighth career LPGA title, her first since the Honda LPGA Thailand almost 15 months ago.

Thompson, 22, overpowered Kingsmill, but she won with more than that. This victory showed how all the work Thompson put into her putting and short game in the offseason is paying off. Putting has been Thompson’s Achilles’ heel in the past, but she was confident with her putter all week. Even her lag putting was at another level, taking a lot of pressure off her on these quick greens.

“Her putting’s been there,” Ko said. “She’s been putting well and hitting her drives well.

“Lexi’s more of an aggressive player, rather than being conservative, especially with her confidence in the driver. She can just rip it, and then she’s got a shorter club in, which is nice with these firmer greens.”

Thompson finished 22nd in driving distance for the week, but that’s because her power allowed her to hit so many 3-woods past opponents’ drivers around the doglegs here. She missed just one green on Sunday. She led the field for the week in hitting greens in regulation (64 of 72).

Chun tried to put pressure on Thompson early, moving within two shots with a birdie at the seventh hole, but Thompson didn’t waver, delivering finesse when power wasn’t enough.

At the 15th hole, from an awkward stance, with one foot in a fairway bunker, Thompson hit a tricky recovery to safe haven, escaping a tough lie to set up her approach and another birdie. It gave her the five-shot cushion she rode home to the victory.

“It was definitely a shot I needed to pull off,” Thompson said.

Thompson played the final round in blue camouflage. It relates back to her spectacular entrance at week’s start, when she skydived from 10,000 feet with a Navy SEAL team to promote her new charity benefitting families of wounded and fallen special ops forces.

Kingsmill galleries came out in strong numbers to cheer Thompson to the victory.

“It’s the best feeling, honestly,” she said. “Words can’t describe it.”

~Horschel's caddie called win after Players MC

IRVING, Texas – Billy Horschel’s caddie, Josh Cassell, called it last week.

Player and caddie were heading toward a fourth missed cut in a row at The Players Championship, but Cassell saw Horschel’s game coming together.

He listened to his swing coach Todd Anderson and switched his putter. Horschel also slowed down his already quick tempo and began to hit the ball much better at TPC Sawgrass.

"You know what, we're going to go next week to Dallas, to the Byron Nelson, and we're going to win," Cassell predicted to his boss.

His premonition became reality on Sunday as Horschel won the Nelson in a playoff over world No. 4 Jason Day.

“I'm sort of speechless because the other three wins I've had in my career have come off of really good playing,” Horschel said. “Come in here with missing four straight cuts, nothing of any type of momentum, only thing I can hang my hat on was my practice sessions for the last several months have been [good] … Unfortunately, it hasn't happened in tournaments.”

Horschel’s fortunes changed on the par-4 14th when he rolled in a 60-foot birdie putt. It provided the spark he needed to battle Day down the stretch.

“It gave me the little kick in the butt to say, ‘Hey, let's not give up on this. Keep grinding it out and see what happens,” Horschel said.

Johnson tops Woods in World Challenge playoff

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. – Zach Johnson put together the storybook finish at Sherwood on Sunday that for the longest time belonged to Tiger Woods.

Johnson rallied from four shots behind with eight holes to play, holed out from a drop area for par on the last hole to force a playoff, and beat the No. 1 player in golf at the World Challenge when Woods missed a 5-foot par putt on the first extra hole.

''Pretty impressive what he did,'' Woods said. ''He got me.''

It was an extraordinary sendoff at Sherwood, which hosted the World Challenge for the 14th and final time before it moves to Florida next year.

The big surprise was the winner in so many ways.

''I feel very fortunate, and a bit lucky,'' said Johnson, who moved into the top 10 in the world ranking for the first time in his career.

For Woods, it was only the fourth time in his career that he lost a lead of at least two shots going into the final round, the second time at Sherwood. Graeme McDowell overcame a four-shot deficit in 2010 and beat Woods in a playoff.

This was far more dramatic.

They were tied after Johnson hit his tee shot to 4 feet for birdie on the 17th hole. Playing from the left rough, Woods came up just short and watched his approach tumble down the elevated green and into the bunker. Johnson followed with his worst shot of the week, an 8-iron so weak that it came up well short and into the hazard.

Johnson knew Woods had a difficult bunker shot, and if he figured if he could stick his wedge close from 58 yards away in the drop zone, a bogey might be enough to get into a playoff. The ball bounced three times and then spun back a few inches into the cup for an unlikely par and a 4-under 68.

''A little too dramatic for me,'' Johnson said.

Woods' hit a superb bunker shot to 2 feet and matched his par for a 70. They finished on 13-under 275.

Woods was between clubs from the 18th fairway in the playoff and tried a smooth 7-iron that he lost enough to the right that it again found the bunker. He hit an exquisite sand shot, this one sliding 5 feet by the hole, and the par putt spun out of the left side.

Johnson won $1 million and should go to No. 9 in the world.

Woods ended what he called a ''damn good year'' – five wins, the most of anyone in the world – with a shocking loss to Johnson. Two years ago, Woods ended the longest drought of his career when he went birdie-birdie at Sherwood to beat Johnson by one shot.

Matt Kuchar (67) and Bubba Watson (70) tied for third at 9-under 279.

The attendance Sunday was 24,922, a record for any round in 14 years at Sherwood. Traffic outside the tiny club in the Santa Monica foothills looked like an LA freeway in what could be the last chance in the near future to see Woods in Southern California.

Woods appeared to have his sixth title at Sherwood sewed up when Johnson missed a short par putt on the 10th hole to fall four shots behind with eight holes to play. Woods had said on Saturday that Johnson wasn't the kind of player who went away easily, and he was right.

Johnson picked up birdies on the 11th and 12th holes, and then got back in the game on the 14th when Woods three-putted from long range on the 14th, and Johnson saved his par with an 8-foot putt to get within one shot.

The rest of the way looked like the final rounds of a heavyweight fight, even if only one of them looked the part.

Johnson laid up on the par-5 16 and nearly holed a sand wedge from 88 yards, setting up a tap-in birdie. Woods, with a tough chip left of the green, rehearsed the shot over and over and it came out perfectly for a matching birdie. Johnson finally caught him with a tee shot to 4 feet for birdie on the 17th, leading to the big finish.

Johnson looked almost apologetic when Woods missed his par putt in the playoff, and it was shocking to see. No one from his generation has made more clutch putts than Woods, who spoke about the topic earlier in the week.

But not this time. It was not the way he wanted to leave Sherwood, where Woods has five wins and now five runner-up finishes. The only consolation was $400,000 for finishing second, bringing to just over $14 million the earnings he has donated to his foundation from the three tournaments (AT&T National, Deutsche Bank, World Challenge) that support his education programs.
