Yani Tseng won the 31st annual Corning Classic on the LPGA tour this past weekend while wearing flak jackets with slate XLJ lenses.

Tseng’s day started with a bogey on the first hole, but she regrouped to eagle the second hole from 14 feet and birdie the third from six feet.

The 20-year-old stayed aggressive on the back-nine where she elected to go for the green on the 310-yard, par-4 16th hole, driving it to 12 feet and setting up her third birdie of the day.

She carded a fourth birdie on 17 where she hit a wedge to 15 feet before two-putting for par on 18 to seal her second-career LPGA victory. Her scores for the weekend were 68-70-62-67=267 (-21).
