Yani is part of an elite group of women who have been named Rookie of the Year, as well as Player of the year, at least once on the LPGA. The list includes Patty Sheehan, JoAnne Carner, Nancy Lopez, Beth Daniel, Karrie Webb, Annika Sörenstam and Lorena Ochoa.
Furthermore, she's just the eighth player to have secured back-to-back Player of the Year awards, along with Kathy Whitworth, Judy Rankin, Nancy Lopez, JoAnne Carner, Annika Sörenstam, Karrie Webb and Lorena Ochoa.
In both cases, she's the first Asian player to accomplish the feat and, of course, the only Taiwanese, male or female to do so.
This season, Yani leads several stats, such as birdies (333), rounds under par (51/69), rounds in the 60s (36/69), top 10 finishes (13/20), scoring average (69.38), driving average (267.9) and money earnings (2,873,629).
