Yani Tseng Wins 2010 Australian Women's Open
A big congratulations goes out to Yani Tseng, a.k.a. "The Birdie Machine" for winning the Handa 2010 Women's Australian Open at the Commonwealth Golf Club.
Tseng (Taiwan) shot a 7-under par to score a 66 to beat juggernauts Karrie Webb and Laura Davies on the final day. Speculation about the possible winner included talk of Giulia Sergas (Italy), Laura Davies (UK) and Karrie Web (Aussie). Meanwhile Tseng continued to quietly pummel the course into submission. Suddenly, during the back nine of day 4, people started to realise that not only was she leading the pack, she was streaking away with birdie after birdie. In the last two or three holes, we also realised that nobody was going to catch her, unless they figured on shooting a few double eagles in a row.
She is not called "The Birdie Machine" for nothing. She birdied five holes on the back nine and left the other competitors in a cloud of dust. Chances are we will be seeing a lot more of Yani Tseng in the future.
