“It’s pretty cool. It’s a lot of different honors.”
“That’s what the year end is about. It feels pretty cool to win the last tournament of the year.”
“Didn’t seem like a whole lot was going my way early. All of a sudden at the end, I was there when I needed to be.”
“I knew that I was leaving putts short and I knew I had to get it there.”
“When it left my putter and it was going towards the hole, I’ve had so many that were in the heart of the hole that I left a foot short this week.”
” It just kept going and I was like get there, get there, get there. It went in and I was like, this was the first bit of momentum I’ve had almost all day.”
Gerina Pillar and Ha Na Jang shared second place, just one shot back at -16 under par. Gerina with a last round -5 under 67 and Ha Na -3 under 69.
