Golfer Ye ends Chinese drought with Shanghai Classic win

China’s Ye Liying captured the $50,000 Shanghai Classic on Sunday by a dominant five shot margin, effectively ending a winless streak by Chinese players on their domestic tour dating back to 2009.

Playing in the first tournament of the China LPGA Tour’s third season, Fujian native Ye closed with a round of two-under 70 at the Orient (Shanghai) Sports and Country Club for a 54-hole score of 1-over 217 and the 7,500-dollar winner’s purse.

Compatriot Tian Hong (72) finished runner-up, while Thailand’s Nontaya Srisawang (75) and Chinese-Taipei’s Yao Hsuan-yu (75) were equal third, six shots back. Overnight leader Mina Nakayama of Japan blew up to an 82 to finish 11 back.
