리디아 고는 18번 홀에서 열린 연장 세컨드샷이 일품이었다.234야드 3번 우드로 홀컵 3피트에 붙인후 이글을 성공시켜 버디로 마친 이민지를 제쳤다.

신지은(26), 이미향(25), 유소연(28)이 나란히 3언더파 285타로 공동 18위에 올랐다. 박인비(30)는 이븐파 288타로 공동 31위.

 

Lydia Ko takes first win in 21 months

Wins Mediheal Championship after playoff with Minjee Lee

Korean-New Zealander Lydia Ko (21) scored her first victory in 21 months on the LPGA tour.

On April 29th, the final round of Mediheal Championship (which took place in Lake Merced Golf Club, par 72 / 6507 yard course), Ko had 5 birdies and 4 bogeys to finish at 12-under 276 over 4 rounds. This forced her into a playoff with Minjee Lee (22, a Korean-Australian), where she scored an eagle on first hole to win her 15th championship on the tour.

Minjee Lee was in tight competition with Ko, who was the leader after 54 holes. On this day, Ko had 3 bogeys till 6th hole, so she had to fight for her lead by scoring birdies on par-4 7th hole and par-4 10th hole.

Lee was 3 shots behind Ko up until 3rd round, but she cut 2 shots off of the lead until par-4 13th hole, then scored birdies consecutively on par-3 17th hole and par-5 18th hole to take the lead. Ko was pushed to the brink, then scored a birdie on the 18th hole to take it to the playoffs.

Playoffs started on the 18th hole, and Ko had a masterful second shot. She used a 3-wood from 234 yards to place the ball 3 feet away from the hole, then made the eagle putt to win the match against Lee who finished with a birdie.

Jenny Shin (26), Mi-Hyang Lee (26), So-Yeon RYu (28) all scored 3-under 285 to tie for 18th place. Inbee Park (30) scored even 288 to tie for 31st place.
