Hannah had a final round of even par 72 to win the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship with a -9 under par total, and a one shot winning margin;
“I’m pretty much speechless.”
“I was really nervous the last five holes and just really, I made a clutch putt and that was kind of got me through another one.”
“To make the one on the last is really is surreal.”
” Anything to just be winning in majors the first event. I actually didn’t feel too nervous the first few. ‘
“Obviously I heard Sung made the last one, knew I needed to make par. Didn’t want to play that hole again. I’m really happy I made it.”
Sung Hyun Park, South Korea, finished in second place with a final round -4 under 68, for tournament total of -8 under.
Mel Reid of England was charging up the leaderboard, a -6 under 66 last round, the low round of the tournament, saw her tied in third position with a -6 under total, alongside Nelly Korda, USA, who had a last round -1 under 71.
Mel’s goal for the year is making the Solheim Cup for Team Europe;
“Obviously, a lot of girls are playing really well, I would pick me.
“I think I bring a lot to the table besides my golf game. I play really well with Carlota, and I obviously love playing Solheim.”
“I think making the cut on the number, shooting six under on the weekend, I definitely found something there. It was nice to bring it into this week.”
