Feng, China winners at World Ladies Championship

Shanshan Feng won the individual title and led China to the team victory Sunday at the inaugural World Ladies Championship on the Ladies European Tour.

Feng posted a one-under 71 on Sunday at the Vintage Course at Mission Hills Haikou, and finished at 10-under 206. She won by a single stroke and became the first player from mainland China to win on the Ladies European Tour.

"I wasn't really shooting a low score today," said Feng. "I think at one time I was like, three behind, but I wasn't worried at all because I knew I would have more chances on the back nine and I would catch up and finally I got it."

The team from China, which featured Feng and Li Ying Ye, came in at 17-under 415 to win by two strokes over Thailand.

Pornanong Phatlum of Thailand carded a two-under 70 on Sunday and finished second in the individual tournament. Pernilla Lindberg's three-under 69 gave her third place two strokes behind Feng at minus-eight.
