A good five shots in front, Feng conjured another piece of magic on the Majlis course, going bogey-free in her final round of 66. Her target was 20 under par, but she surpassed her own goal with a birdie on the iconic 18th hole to seal her third win in the event and equal her own record of 21 under par.
“Coming to this tournament my goal was a top-five finish and I’m delighted to exceed my expectations. Dubai has been really good me, a lucky place, indeed,” said Feng who made three birdies in each half.
“It wasn’t easy out there in the windy conditions, but I kept my composure and got the job done in the end,” she said.
Thailand’s Thidapa Suwannapura, who shot a final round 73, finished second on nine-under par with England’s Melissa Reid a stroke back in third.
