Feng shoots 65 to lead Sime Darby

29 October 2017

"I try to do the best on every shot, so that's my mantra tomorrow".

She heads into her final round eight shots off the leader American Cristie Kerr.

For 11-year LPGA pro Sarah Jane Smith, it was a different, yet welcome, route to her first tee shot today at TPC Kuala Lumpur.

"It's amusing, I think what I've struggled with here is the greens, and we've kind of finally figured out that I read too much into them but I holed a few nice putts early yesterday". I love this golf course.

The 40-year-old managed to escape from a play-off after accumulating 15-under-par 269 to take a one shot win over three other golfers - defending champion, Feng Shanshan of China and compatriot Danielle Kang and Jacqui Concolino.

She will need to be at her best if it is to happen this week, however, with some of the game's finest ahead of her on the leaderboard.

There was also an incident with Sei Young Kim, who was in contention for the lead, but received a two shot penalty after removing a leaf in a bunker.

Kerr will be aiming for a 20th career title tomorrow but will need to outlast two-time former victor of the event Shanshan Feng if she is to do it.

Lydia Ko has tumbled from first to sixth following a patchy second round at the LPGA Malaysia tournament in Kuala Lumpur.

Three bogeys on the front nine were negated by three birdies coming home but a bogey on the par-four 18th hole left the former No.1 with work to do over the weekend.

"I felt great. You know, I found a groove with my swing and a feel that I haven't had in my swing in a while".

"So it's been fun the last couple of days".
