Maybe not, but she's won as often as Wie

March 07, 2009

Chinese golfer Shanshan Feng, a second-year member of the LPGA, said this: "I'm not as pretty or talented as Michelle Wie, but I'm sure a win at the HSBC Women's Champions will get everyone talking about me."

Feng is out of contention in the HSBC in Singapore, and we'll leave it to others to judge appearance, but on talent she needn't sell herself short. Last year, as an 18-year-old rookie, she earned nearly a half-million dollars and finished in the top-10 on five occasions. And as we noted in the headline, she's in a dead heat in the category that matters most -- victories.
