Shi Yuting Is Young Chinese Golf Star In the Making

Shi Yuting is an up-and-coming golf on Asian tours and just won a tournament on the China LPGA Tour (CLPGA) for the second consecutive year.

Shi won the 2018 Le Coq Sportif Beijing Ladies Classic, beating Keh Munchin of New Zealand in a playoff. Shi opened the tournament with a score of 73, then posted back-to-back 66s to finish at 11-under 205.

She also won the tournament in 2017, one of several titles Shi has won on the Chinese tour.

Shi herself was born in Japan but plays under the Chinese flag. In 2017, she was a rookie on the Japan LPGA Tour (JLPGA). She also has tournament appearances on the Thai LPGA and Ladies Asian golf tours.

And on the LPGA Tour, in a handful of events. Shi, who is 20 years old at the time of this writing, posted a pair of Top 60 finishes in LPGA Asian stops in 2016, when she was 18.

Still in the earliest stages of her career, Shi has developed a reputation as a fashion icon, both on and off the golf course.
