Shanshan Feng claimed her first-ever tournament victory

Shanshan Feng became the first Chinese woman to win on tour with a five-under round of 67 on day four of the LPGA Championship in New York.

The 22-year-old won by two shots in finishing six under for the tournament, banking 375,000 US Dollars for her first tournament victory.

Overnight leader Ji Eun-hee shared second place with the in-form Stacy Lewis, Mika Miyazato and Suzann Pettersen - all four closing on four under.

The top three after 54 holes - Ji, Karrie Webb and Giulia Sergas - all failed to break even-par as their respective bids for victory faltered.

Grace Park, in her last round as a professional, hit a forgettable seven over par to finish 17 over and in joint last place.
