KUALA LAMPUR: Taiwanese world number one Yani Tseng and South Korea’s Choi Na-Yeon will return for October’s Sime Darby LPGA Malaysia, where Choi edged out Tseng in a thriller last year, according to organisers. Besides Tseng and the world number four Choi, top players Cristie Kerr and Paula Creamer of the US have also committed to the $1.9 million tournament on October 11-14 at the Kuala Lumpur Golf and Country Club. Last year the result went down to the wire, with Choi holding off the hard-charging Tseng, who shot a six-under 65 in the final round, equalling the course record. Tseng, who was in dominant form last year, has cooled somewhat in 2012 but has still won three LPGA events this year, while Choi bagged the US Women’s Open title in July.
