Former world No. 1 Yani Tseng showed some returning form Sunday in her best finish in an LPGA event in more than a year.

Tseng tied for second behind Lizette Salas at the Kingsmill Championship, but she left wanting more.

“It’s a good week, compared to others, because I know my game is where I can have a chance to win tournaments,” Tseng told reporters after her round.

Tseng, who got within three shots of the lead on the back nine, wasn’t happy with a double bogey to close, but it marked her best LPGA finish since she opened the 2013 season finishing second at the ISPS Handa Women’s Australian Open. She's looking for her first LPGA title since the Kia Classic in March of 2012.

“I work really hard, but the only thing I can do is be patient,” Tseng said.

Tseng, who lost her No. 1 ranking 14 months ago, had fallen to No. 53 in the world going to the Kingsmill Championship. She moved up to No. 41 this week.
