Kuala Lumpur: South Korea’s Choi Na-Yeon held off a hard-charging world No. 1 Yani Tseng to win the Sime Darby LPGA Malaysia in an exciting finish at the Kuala Lumpur Golf and Country Club on Sunday.
The world No. 4 carded a nervous 3-under 68 to finish on 15-under 269 to claim the top prize of $285,000.
Taiwan's Tseng, who edged past Choi to win a tournament last week in South Korea, had to settle for second despite equalling the course record with a six-under 65 to end the competition at 14-under 270.
