Song, from Fullerton, California, made seven starts on the LPGA Tour this year while recovering from a back injury. She also played 11 tournaments on the Symetra Tour.

"I definitely want to be back out there," Song said. "I can play out there and I can win out there and I really want to get back there ASAP."

The 20-year-old Simin birdied four of her final five holes.

"I hit all of the fairways and only missed two greens so that was the key," Feng said.
