Feng outlasts Ji in 19 holes

China’s Feng Shanshan drained a birdie bomb at the 19th hole to edge South Korean Ji Eun-hee and reach the semifinals of the LPGA Match-Play at Shadow Creek in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Saturday. Feng finished a marathon day with a flourish to lead a trio of major champions into the semis. The winner of the 2012 Women’s PGA Championship will take on 2020 Women’s British Open winner Sophia Popov, who beat Thailand’s ANA Inspiration champion Patty Tavatanakit 3 & 2. Thailand’s Ariya Jutanugarn, a former US and British Open champion, also advanced, defeating Australian Minjee Lee 5 & 4 to set up a meeting with American Ally Ewing, who handed compatriot Danielle Kang her first defeat of the week, 1-up. It was a long day for Feng, who needed 22 holes to beat American Brittany Altomare in the round of 16 on Saturday morning.
