Feng stole the show on Sunday in Naples

NAPLES, Fla. – Shanshan Feng seems determined to awaken the sleeping giant in golf.

Feng won another big event Sunday to make her native China proud.

Feng, trying to inspire her homeland to love golf as much as she does, separated herself from a star-studded leaderboard with a fast start in the final round to win the CME Group Titleholders.

With four birdies over the first six holes at Tiburon, Feng took control early in the final round, posting a bogey-free 6-under-par 66 to beat Gerina Piller (69) by a single shot. At 15-under 273, Feng outplayed some of the biggest names in women's golf, pulling away from a jam-packed leaderboard that included Rolex world No. 1 Inbee Park, Stacy Lewis, Lexi Thompson,Michelle Wie and Natalie Gulbis.

Feng, 24, relishes China’s emerging place in the game, and she’s giving her country reasons to take notice of the women’s game. She is the nation’s most decorated golfer. That’s three LPGA titles now in two seasons.
