HARU NOMURA CAPTURES SWINGING SKIRTS LPGA CLASSIC

For second victory of 2016 despite the very windy conditions

Braving the windy conditions that dominated play this week at Lake Merced Golf Club, Haru Nomura took both the 36 and 54-hole leads at the Swinging Skirts LPGA Classic. She began the final round with a 3-stroke lead ahead of Lee-Anne Pace and Na Yeon Choi and told the media on Saturday she believed a round of 2-under or even par would be all she needed to win on Sunday. 

With winds gusting to nearly 40 miles per hour during the final round, Nomura got it done with a 1-over par, 73 to win by four at 9-under par, the highest winning score of 2016.

The day wasn’t without its ups and downs for Nomura, who made three consecutive bogeys on the front nine to drop her lead to one.  But she was able to turn the tide by draining a70-footer for birdie at the par 3, 12th hole to once again extend her lead. 

With her victory this week, Nomura becomes the third multiple winner of 2016, having captured the ISPS Handa Women’s Australian Open in February for her first win on Tour. She joins Ha Na Jang and Lydia Ko as the only multiple winners this season.
