Yani Tseng with the AIG Women

Yani Tseng is one of only three players to win two consecutive AIG Women's Open, and in a period from 2008 to 2013, the player from Chinese Taipei produced a dominant run in world golf.

The talented star won five majors in a four year stretch, becoming the youngest person to reach such a mark, and was the world number one ranked player for 108 consecutive weeks between 2011 and 2013.

Two of those five majors came at the AIG Women's Open. Tseng won her first AIG Women's Open at Royal Birkdale in 2010, where the then 21-year-old went wire-to-wire, holding off Katherine Kirk to win by one stroke. Tseng then defended at the first ever AIG Women's Open at Carnoustie in 2011 in much more dominant fashion, winning by four strokes from Brittany Lang.

Surprisingly, Tseng's form fell off a cliff in late 2013, and in her final full season in 2018 on the LPGA Tour, she made only as many cuts as she had wins just seven years earlier. Fittingly, seven. Still, Tseng's back-to-back titles leave the Chinese Taipei star in exclusive company, and in the AIG Women's Open history books forever.
