7 Days in Dubai - - SPORT -

Reign­ing cham­pion and Olympic bronze medal­list Shan­shan Feng will re­turn to one of her hap­pi­est hunt­ing grounds when she tees it up at the Omega Dubai Ladies Masters from De­cem­ber 7-10. The three-time Dubai win­ner and China’s most dec­o­rated golfer said: “Dubai has been very good to me, a lucky place in­deed. “I just en­joy this tour­na­ment and try to fo­cus on shot by shot. “I love this course and it suits my game, so I’m just go­ing to give my best and I think my goal is just a top 10 fin­ish, as al­ways.” Back-to-back vic­to­ries at the Sime Darby Malaysia and the Ja­pan Clas­sic high­lighted an­other solid sea­son on the LPGA Tour for Feng, but the Chi­nese ace felt it was win­ning the Olympic bronze that meant the most this sea­son

as golf re­turned to the Games for the first time in more than 100 years. “I didn’t play very well for the first half of this year and my LPGA rank­ing dropped out of the top ten,” said Feng. “But I got a medal at the Olympics so I felt that all of the hard work paid off and I felt re­ally happy about it.”
