Minjee Lee became the third rookie winner this year winning the Kingsmill Championship in Virginia with a final round -6 under par 65 and a -15 under par total.
For 18 year-old Aussie Minjee this was her first LPGA Tour win, and she was definitely delighted;
“I didn’t think this moment would come this year, so I’m stoked to have won.”
“Just because I won in my rookie season, I feel like I could probably do it again. It just kind of gives me confidence that I can play out here and win out here.”
“On the 18th, I looked at the leaderboard and I saw Alison made birdie, so I kind of thought, I’ll just do everything I can in my control.”
“I just knocked it on and two‑putted for par.”
So Yeon Ryu finished second, a -4 under par last round gave her a -13 under par total. She said she had played perfectly this morning, but did not finish strongly;
“Sometimes early morning my body is still not awake, but this morning my body condition was even better than yesterday.”
“So I pretty much made every shot and every putt. So, yeah, perfect this morning.”
“On 16 and 17, I felt like I hit two good putts, but they didn’t go in, and on 18, I just kind of gave up on myself and I shouldn’t have done that. I should have finished strong.”
Another rookie Alison Lee claimed third place, a -2 under par final round giving her a -12 under par tournament total. To play in the U.S. Open Alison will try to get into a qualifier on Tuesday in California.
