Alison Lee finishes second by one-stroke at White Manor Country Club

MALVERN, Pa. — Yueer Cindy Feng, 13, of Orlando, Fla., and Alison Lee, 14, of Valencia, Calif., went head-to-head in the final round Thursday at the McDonald's Betsy Rawls Girls Championship. Feng took top honors after making a par on No. 16 to take the lead and finish at even-par 71 for a tournament total of 2-under-par 211.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the McDonald's Betsy Rawls Girls Championship was a 54-hole stroke play event held at White Manor Country Club. The tournament field consisted of 71 Girls, ages 12-18, from 16 states, Mexico and Canada. The par-71 course was played at 6,292 yards.

Feng was three strokes behind Lee making the turn to the back-nine. She was able to gain the lead with birdies on Nos. 11 and 15, and with a strong par on No. 16 finished 2-under-par 34 on the back to win by one stroke.

“On No. 16 my drive went into the fairway, from there I rushed my second shot and missed the green to the right in the bunker,” Feng said. “My bunker shot went past the pin by 8 feet and then I dropped the putt for par.”

Ranked seventh in Polo Golf Rankings, this is Feng's second victory of the year which both happen to be invitationals. In May she took home the trophy at the Thunderbird International Junior.

Lee, who was the 2008 McDonald's Betsy Rawls Girls Championship runner-up had a strong start with a birdie on No. 2 and posted no bogeys to finish the front nine 1-under-par 34. She carded a three-round score of 1-under-par 212 to take second by three strokes.

“You have to putt well here, that is the only way to get a low score,” Lee said. “The difference between yesterday and today is I made my putts yesterday and today I had numerous lip-outs on the back nine.”

Rachel Morris of Carlsbad, Calif., and Kristina Wong of Bradenton, Fla., tied for third with tournament totals of 2-over-par 215. Rounding out the girls top five is Kelly Shon of Port Washington, N.Y., at 3-over-par 216.
