Feng Shanshan celebrated her 23rd birthday in style on Sunday by winning the Meiji Cup in a three-way playoff for her second tour title this season.

Feng, who won the U.S. LPGA Championship in June, made up a four-stroke deficit with a 5-under-par, final-round 67 to pull even with Shinobu Moromizato and overnight leader Ahn Sun Ju at 7-under-par-209 after 54 holes at the Sapporo Kokusai Country Club. Feng won the playoff, contested only on the par-5 18th, by sinking a 40-foot eagle putt on the fourth extra hole.
