Kuala Lumpur: National bowler Sin Li Jane made history by becoming the first Malaysian to win the US Women’s Open at Royal Pin Woodland, Indianapolis, on Tuesday.

The 32-year-old put up a brilliant performance to claim the title after defeating Latvian Diana Zavjalova 226-214 in the stepladder final.

Li Jane also became the second Asian to win the tournament after Shinobu Saitoh of Japan in 1982.

The tournament was introduced in 1949. The previous best achievement by a Malaysian bowler was through Shalin Zulkifli, who finished third in the 2008 edition.

Li Jane took home a cash prize of US$60,000 (about RM282,900) in addition to the green championship jacket and trophy.
