Ya Ni Tseng Wins at Home

Following up on my quick rundown of the results of the Taiwan LPGA's Royal Open, where Sakura Yokomine had to settle for a T10 in her 1st start of 2011, I'm happy to report that Ya Ni Tseng fared much better in her debut, winning the Taifong Ladies Open. Here's how the notables in the field ended up after 54 holes of competition last week:

1st/+2 Ya Ni Tseng
T3/+7 Nontaya Srisawang
6th/+8 Mi Rim Lee [previous week's winner]
T7/+9 Julie Lu
T9/+10 Danah Bordner, Porani Chutichai

T12/+11 Teresa Lu, Pornanong Phatlum, Ji Na Lim
T17/+12 Izumi Narita
T19/+13 Yun Jye Wei, Hong Mei Yang
T24/+15 Maiko Wakabayashi
T26/+16 Yeo-Jin Kang
28th/+17 Aiko Ueno
T29/+18 Onnarin Sattayabanphot, Ya Huei Lu
T34/+19 Na Zhang, Christine Song
T41/+22 Tiffany Tavee

That's 2 pretty good results, all things considered, for Bordner. Let's see how she does at the Hitachi Classic this week, where Tseng is looking to make it back-to-back wins!

Did Tseng have to play with someone elses clubs in the first round ? Hard to imagine her putting up a 77 on a course like that.

Danah Bordner let things get away in the second round - just four shots better (still 2 over for the day) and she would've had a nice high finish.
