In Gee and Trophy
In Gee carded a final round -6 under par 66 to secure her first win for a while, the LPGA KEB Hana Bank Championship, with a -16 under total, giving her a three shot victory.
It was an emotional victory for In Gee, she had been suffering from negative comments posted online about her performances;
“I was really frustrated with myself for responding or reacting to those comments on line, and so I think that there was a factor there that pushed me down, and I didn’t want to get back up again.”
“I was kind of scared because I didn’t know how I would act in front of people again, but then I didn’t want to act like somebody else.”
“I always wanted to be true to myself and I wanted to be a genuine person.”
“Before this week, I won 13 times as a professional, I am glad that I am done with the No. 13. I really hate that number.”
Charley Hull from England could not post a good last round, settling for second place at -13 under after posting -1 under 71 today;
“On 16, I hit a decent tee shot. Was in the drainage ditch and had to drop it in the first cut. Hit a really good pitching wedge to the green and couldn’t manage to hold it, and then it was a weird lie.”
“I was in like a little bit of a divot on the 16th green and then chipped it and nearly holed the putt.”
“Oh, well. I’m pretty happy with that result. But this week was a lot of fun. I’ve been playing pretty well so far this season.”
“Had a bit of a quiet spell through like the Women’s British Open and stuff but I feel like my game is in really good condition right now.”
Four Ladies were tied in third place at -12 under par, Sung Hyun Park, South Korea, -3 under 69 today, Danielle Kang, USA, even par 72, Minjee Lee, Australia, -2 under 70 and Ariya Jutanugarn from Thailand with a last round -1 under 71.
