Na Yeon Choi blitzed the field on Sunday at the U.S. Womans Open at the Pete Dye designed Blackwolf Run championship course in Kohler, Wisconsin. Na Yeon had a final round of +1 over par to finish with a total of -7 under par, four shots ahead of Amy Yang who finished in second place. The rest of the field failed to finish under the card, the two South Koreans were definitely a cut above the rest in this tournament.

This is Na Yeon’s first career major championship win, previous best finish in a major was tied second  at the 2010 U.S. Women’s Open at Oakmont C.C. She said about her strained last round, knocking up a triple on the tenth hole;

“I wasn’t nervous at all on the front nine, I had one missed shot on ten, and there I got a triple bogey. At that moment, I thought maybe I was going to screw up today. But I needed to fix it. I can do it. I talked to my caddie at that point, talking about the airplane tomorrow or vacation. Anything but golf.”

She also had problems on twelve;

“I almost felt like taking an unplayable lie there, but if I do, I might get bad lie again, my caddie told me to hit it hard and get it on the green. I didn’t expect the ball to finish on the green. All winners of this tournament have a little bit of luck, I thought that was my luck, why I win today.”

Amy Yang knew she was up against it;

“I knew she was going to play well, she is a very consistent player.

New Zealand’s 15-year-old World number one amateur finished the tournament at +12 over par, but will have picked up some valuable experience from this tournament.
