IN GEE CHUN WINS 70TH US WOMEN’S OPEN

Maiden appearance ends in maiden victory

In Gee Chun of South Korean made the best of her very first appearance in the U.S. Women’s Open Championship Conducted by the USGA and shot a 66 on Sunday for a come-from-behind victory over Amy Yang. Chun, who is a member of the KLPGA and JLPGA, started the day four shots off the lead and birdied three of her final four holes to finish at 8-under par 272 and one shot clear of Yang who struggled on Sunday and closed with a 71. Chun recorded seven birdies and three bogeys on the day and her four-day total of 272 matched Annika Sorenstam (1996) and Juli Inkster (1999) for the championship scoring record. Chun made four previous starts on the LPGA Tour this season and said those experiences have led her to great success this season in Korea and this week in Lancaster. 

“This year at the beginning of the season I played four tournaments at LPGA,” said Chun. “I had a great experience from those four tournaments and that has led to three wins in Korea and one major win in Japan. And with that, with all those four wins this year, I got a lot of confidence bringing into this tournament. And that’s why I could enjoy every moment of the tournament.”
