Yani Tseng totally dominated the field at the Handa Australian Open yesterday to claim victory for the second year in a row. She finished the day at the Commonwealth Golf Club at 16-under par – seven strokes clear of Eun-Hee Ji, Melissa Reid and world number one, Jiyai Shin.
Taiwanese born Tseng was all class in some trying conditions yesterday, attacking every pin no matter how hard the wind blew. She climbed back to number two in the world according to the Rolex Rankings and based on that performance, it appears only a matter of time before she claims the top ranked position. Indeed it is hard to believe that Yani Tseng has not yet been number one in the world. She rose to number two in the world in 2010 winning two of the four major championships and was awarded the 2010 LPGA player of the year.
Interestingly, last year she was reportedly offered a five year sponsorship deal with an unnamed Chinese company last year. She declined the offer as one of the requirements meant she must change her citizenship from Taiwanese to Chinese.
