TAIPEI, Taiwan (AP) Ha Na Jang held off Shanshan Feng by a stroke in wind and rain Sunday in the Fubon LPGA Taiwan Championship for her third victory of the year.

Eight strokes ahead of Feng after a birdie on the sixth hole, the 24-year-old South Korean player bogeyed two of the next three holes and scrambled to par the final nine for a 1-under 71.

Feng finished with a 66. The Chinese star chipped in for birdie from 35 feet on the par-4 15th to pull within two strokes, and nearly holed a bunker shot for eagle on the par-5 18th. Jang then lagged her 15-foot birdie putt to inches, and danced on the green after tapping in.

Jang finished at 17-under 271.

Canada's Brooke Henderson birdied the last two holes for a 70 to tie for third with South Korea's Hyo Joo Kim (69) at 10 under. Taiwan's Candie Kung (69), South Africa's Lee-Anne Pace (71) and South Korea's Hee Young Park (72) were another stroke back.

Jang won her first tour title in February in Florida and added her second three events later in Singapore.
