A 13-year-old Chinese golfing prodigy stole the headlines at the China Ladies Golf Open on Sunday. Teenager Shi Yiting set a new record, while a South Korean golfer grabbed her second straight tournament title.

Shi became the youngest golfer to finish in fourth place at the tournament after she carded a total of 214 - 2 strokes under-par. But the title belonged to South Korea’s Kim Hye Youn. She finished with a 1 over-par 73 on Sunday, and retained the trophy she won last year with a total of 210 - 6 under-par.

China’s Feng Shanshan produced the best result among all Chinese golfers. She blasted a 4-under 212 to finish second. Organizers hope the event can grow bigger in the future.

Li Hong, CLPGA CEO, said, "I think the China Ladies Golf Open is an international event. Currently, we cooperate with the South Korean Golf Association. They send 40 golfers to play against their Chinese counterparts. We have done a good job, but we need to make this event more international so more golfers from Europe and America can participate.”
