Yani Tseng Wins 2010 Women’s British Open, Makes History

Yani Tseng of Taiwan won the 2010 Women’s British Open in England today by one stroke over Katherine Hull of Australia. Yani Tseng broke records Sunday, becoming the youngest woman to win three major trophies and the first player from her island to win the British Open.

Taiwanese golfer Yani Tseng, age 21, finished with a total 11-under 277 at Royal Birkdale in Enlgand, beating Australian golfer Katherine Hull, who finished with a total 10-under 277.

“I was so tired, there was so much pressure out there and it’s been an unbelievable day. Even when I holed the putt at the last I had to ask my caddie ‘Did I win?,” Tseng told reporters.

“The last four holes were very hard and Katherine pushed me all the way. She’s an awesome player.”

“I’m disappointed but there are also a lot of positives to take from this week,” second place Katherine Hull said.

“I never gave up but it’s just a pity I couldn’t make a birdie at one of the three long holes at the end.”

Na Yeon Choi and In-Kyung Kim shared third place with -7. Amy Yang, Hee Kyeong Seo and Cristie Kerr tied for 5th place with a score of -6.
