Celebrating a newly-retired Shanshan Feng, the pioneering Chinese player who broke barriers with humor and one-of-a-kind style

SMG Logo By Beth Ann Nichols of SMG | Slide 2 of 5: In 2012, Feng broke through with her first LPGA title, which happened to be a major at what's now known as the KPMG Women's PGA. She'd go on to win 10 LPGA titles over the course of her career. "I always saw myself as a guinea pig," said Feng. "There was nobody ahead of me that I could follow their path. I had to really make out the path myself. I would say I just need to learn everything, almost like a beginner."
