Tseng, 22, youngest to win 4 majors

Yani Tseng left no doubt she’s the best female player in the world, running away with the LPGA Championship by 10 strokes Sunday at Pittsford, N.Y., and, at 22, becoming the youngest to win four LPGA majors.

The top-ranked Tseng closed with a 6-under 66 to finish 19-under 269 at Locust Hill Country Club, matching the LPGA record low score at a major. Dottie Pepper (1999 Kraft Nabisco) and Karen Stupples (2004 Women’s British Open) also finished at 19 under.

Tseng bettered Se Ri Pak, who was 24 when she won her fourth major. For the star from Taiwan, it was her eighth career LPGA Tour victory, second in a row and third of the season.

Morgan Pressel (71) finished second. Kerr (69), Suzann Pettersen (67) and Paula Creamer (69) tied for third at 8 under.

PGA Tour

Fredrik Jacobson closed out his first PGA Tour title, shooting a 4-under 66 in the Travelers Championship at Cromwell, Conn., for a one-stroke victory over John Rollins and Ryan Moore.

Jacobson had just one bogey in the tournament and finished at 20 under — two shots off the course record.

Rollins and Moore closed with 63s. Moore missed a 4-foot par putt on 18.

Champions Tour

John Huston shot a 7-under 65 to win his first Champions Tour title, taking advantage of three straight bogeys by Mark Wiebe to capture the Dick’s Sporting Goods Open at Endicott, N.Y.

Huston finished at 16-under 200 in his third Champions Tour start since turning 50 on June 1, earning a three-shot victory over Nick Price (66). Wiebe was another shot back after a 71.
