NEW-LOOK LPGA

LPGA players show off their off-course style.

Shanshan Feng of China won the Dubai Ladies Masters by five strokes on Saturday after shooting a 3-under-par 69 to capture her second Ladies European Tour title.

The highest-ranked player in the field at No. 6, Feng had an eagle, two birdies and a bogey to total 21-under 267 at Emirates Golf Club.

''I didn't look at the leaderboard until 18, so I had no idea how everyone else was doing. But I'm very happy,'' said Feng, who won the World Ladies Championship in March. ''I wanted a top-five finish this week and I did even better than that. I played solid all week and my putting was the key.''

Dewi Claire Schreefel of the Netherlands (69) was next. Caroline Masson of Germany (71) and Becky Brewerton of Wales (65) were four strokes further back to be tied for third.

Masson needed to finish second to win the Order of Merit from Carlota Ciganda but a double-bogey on No. 12 ended her hopes.

''I gave it my best shot, but it was just not good enough,'' Masson said.

Instead, the Spaniard became the first player since Laura Davies in 1985 to win the Order of Merit and Rookie of the Year in the same season.

''It ends an unbelievable season,'' said Ciganda, who shot a 68 to finish 12 off the pace. ''I'm very proud.''

Defending champion Lexi Thompson (70) finished with a share of 10th place, while Michelle Wie (69) was tied for 19th.
