SIME DARBY LPGA MALAYSIA


October 13, 2013


Shanshan Feng


KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA

Q. ¬†You followed up your win with a runner‑up finish.¬† That's pretty awesome.¬† You didn't play in the final round, but you kind of surged back.¬† Just talk about the day today.
SHANSHAN FENG:¬† Well, I was in the second‑to‑last group, so to be honest I had less pressure than the other girls.¬† I started six back, I believe, and I knew, because I played with Lexi yesterday, she's in good shape.¬† We know she's not going to do bad today, so I had to shoot a really low score to catch her, which I tried but I didn't make.¬† My iron shots weren't that accurate and didn't make too many putts.
But I think 4‑under is still a very good round for me.

Q.  You have to be pleased just in general, and the birdie on 18, that had to be a cherry on top?
SHANSHAN FENG:¬† I had a very good finish.¬† It was birdie‑par‑birdie.

Q.  Going into next week just continuing what you've been doing?
SHANSHAN FENG:  Next week I'm off.  I'm going home.  I'm resting next week.

Q.  And then Taiwan after?
SHANSHAN FENG:  No, Japan.  I'm playing four weeks in a Japan.

Q.  So you're doing some JLPGA?
SHANSHAN FENG:  Yes.

Q.¬† Do you now wish you kind of continued on, keep going‑‑
SHANSHAN FENG:  Yeah, I mean, after the win last week, the pressure is off, and I got my confidence back and I'm really relaxed on the courses.  I really enjoy playing now.

Q.  One more question about Lexi winning:  How good is that for the Tour?  She's been one of the faces and stars.  She's going to win her first as a member.  How big is that for the Tour in terms of exposure?
SHANSHAN FENG:  Yeah, just kidding, I think she's making us look old.  Going with her yesterday, watching her swing, she can swing like so hard and it doesn't hurt her body.  I was like, oh, very nice to be 18.  I mean, of course it's going to be huge because it's going to encourage a lot of the junior players to actually turn pro, and turn pro earlier because I think a lot of them have been going to colleges and then coming out, especially for Americans I would say that, because for Asians we mainly turn pro when we get to 17 or 18.
So I think it's really good if we can have a lot more good young American girls to come on the Tour, because it is the American Tour, right?  We want to see more Americans.
