Lewis had a one shot lead on the 18th, forcing Feng to go for the green if she stood a chance of victory.

Lucky or brilliant, Feng's second shot took a dramatic bounce just clearing the water hazard, bouncing forward onto the green, hitting the flag stick leaving an almost certain eagle. Feng went on to make the putt giving her a one shot victory.

In a post-round news conference, Lewis said: “I feel like it was just taken from me. You’d like to win on a good shot, but, obviously, it wasn’t a good shot. It’s very frustrating. It was a frustrating day just with the crowds and dealing with all that. It was hard to play today.”

Not long after Lewis continued to air her frustrations in a series of Tweets:

Congrats to Shan Shan on the win, crazy shot at 18. Very disappointed in the fans in China this week.— Stacy Lewis (@Stacy_Lewis) October 6, 2013

Between all the cameras and cheering when I missed putts. It was just really hard to have fun out there. On to the next...— Stacy Lewis (@Stacy_Lewis) October 6, 2013

Btw what till you see the shot on 18 that won it! Lets just say it involved a rock and the flag stick...— Stacy Lewis (@Stacy_Lewis) October 6, 2013

Later, two of the Tweets were deleted and followed by what is believed to be a final Tweet before Lewis deleted her account:

For those whose were actually supportive on twitter, sorry to say I will be signing off of here. I'm sorry I say what I believe.— Stacy Lewis (@Stacy_Lewis) October 6, 2013
