Suzann Pettersen scoops the Manulife LPGA Classic, at – 21 under par, and a comfortable three shot victory.
Suzann started the day with two bogey’s, but steadied the ship to card a -3 under par 69 final round to win the Manulife LPGA Classic at -22 under par. She thought today was a tough round, but managed to finish strongly;
“I felt it was tougher today, for me, some stupid mistakes early on but I kept digging deep and finished strong and I feel like I played really good golf this week.”
“I made a good birdie on 8, backed it up with a tap in birdie on 9 and hit a great 4 iron to 10 and kind of felt like that set the pace a little bit.”
“Eagled 12, it was a little bit of a game changer. I knew the scores were not as low as it has been early in the week, but I was still trying to get to my number. I didn’t get there but it was good enough.”
“I actually thought I was two or three clear standing on 17. I was asked if I knew where I was and I said no.”
” They said you need a couple more birdies. I think that made 17 a little easier because I thought I had much more of a cushion.
“Brittany had finished so strong. Very happy with the way I played and the way I handled myself.”
“I felt I played some really good golf this week, I was pretty flawless through three rounds and broke that effort pretty quickly with a couple of bogeys, but I managed to get my head together and play some good golf.”
“I played aggressive, and it was a good day on the golf course.”
” So I’m really excited for next week and it’s nice to be back.”
Brittany Lang finished in second place at -21 under par, just one shot adrift, a final round -7 under par 65 not good enough to catch the leader;
“Yeah, feel great. I got a little nervous towards the back nine.”
“I played great all week and I really was in control of my shots and my emotions towards the end, so it’s all you can ask for, to be clutch and make birdies, so very proud.”
Mariajo Uribe claimed third place, a last round even par 72, was not what she was looking for, she tweeted;
“Happy with my performance got to keep working hard.”
Inbee Park finished at -13 under par, ahead of Lydia Ko -10 under par, but Lydia keeps her number one spot by a slim margin.
