Tseng Makes the List

By February 19, 2012

Follow me on:

She didn't win the LPGA's 2012 season-opener, but Yani Tseng also didn't wait long to pick up her first victory of this year. Tseng won the second LPGA event of the year, the Honda LPGA Thailand.

Tseng closed with a final-round 66, finishing at 19-under 269. That was good for a one-stroke victory over third-round leader Ai Miyazato, who shot 68 on Sunday. It was Tseng's second-straight win in this tournament.

So what list does Tseng make, as referenced in the headline? The win is her 13th on the LPGA Tour, and that's enough to show up on our list of golfers with the most career LPGA wins. Tseng is tied at 13 wins with Betty Jameson, Rosie Jones and Liselotte Neumann.

Tseng now has 21 points in the LPGA's Hall-of-Fame qualifying system; it takes 27 points for an LPGA player to earn an automatic place in the World Golf Hall of Fame.

So think about it: Tseng is just 23 years old, has 13 LPGA wins (33 worldwide) and 5 majors, and has a very good chance of qualifying for the Hall of Fame this year. (Tseng wouldn't actually be inducted until she's reached 10 years on the LPGA Tour.)
