Tseng, Choi to do battle again at LPGA Malaysia

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, organisers said.
Besides Tseng and the world number four Choi, top players Cristie Kerr and Paula Creamer of the United States have also committed to the $1.9 million tournament on October 11-14 at the Kuala Lumpur Golf and Country Club.
Last year it 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.
"I'm looking forward to getting back to the KLGCC. I finished one shot behind Na-Yeon last year after a pretty tense fourth round so will see what I can do this year," Tseng said in a statement released by the organisers.
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.
