At the tender age of 20, Korean player Jiyai Shin, has already conquered world number 1 player, Lorena Ochoa, to take the Champion of Champions title at the 2009 HSBC Women’s Champions tournament on 8 March.
The current world number five and 2008 British Open champion shot a second successive six-under-par 66 to seal her reputation as a fearsome last-round performer. She was six shots behind at the start of the final day. Popularly known in her homeland as “Final Round Queen”, Jiyai can now be proud that she stands alongside recent HSBC Champions like Phil Mickelson, Lorena Ochoa and Sergio Garcia.
