DUBAI (AFP) - Defending champion Feng Shanshan won a record fourth Dubai Ladies Masters golf title on Saturday following a brilliant eight-under final-round 64.

The 27-year-old from China started the day five shots behind overnight leader Felicity Johnson of England.

But she claimed back-to-back titles, finishing on a 10-under total of 206 as the leaders fell by the wayside on a windy day at the Majlis course of Emirates Golf Club.

Feng, the highest-ranked player in the field at world No. 4, was chased home by England's Charley Hull - second at eight-under following a 65.

India's Aditi Ashok signed off a brilliant season tied for third place with England's Florentyna Parker at six-under par 210. The tournament was reduced to 54 holes following the death of caddie Maximilian Zechmann on the opening day on Wednesday.

American Beth Allen won the Ladies European Tour Order of Merit crown, while Ashok was the Rookie of he Year.
