TAIPEI: South Korea’s Jang Ha-Na carded a one-under 71 Sunday for a 17-under par total of 271 to secure a one-shot victory at the LPGA Taiwan Championship. Jang battled strong wind and rain to end the final round with three birdies and two bogeys at the tournament at Miramar Golf and Country Club in New Taipei City.

Feng scored a six-under 66 in the final round to finish with a tournament total of 16-under par 272. It was Jang’s third victory of the 2016 season.
