Great news for Mi Hur fans- the smart young golfer for South Korea has again impressed with a fantastic triumph at the recently concluded LPGA Classic.
Hur won with the tournament-record of total 21-under.
The 24 year old South Korean was able to maintain her final-day lead while she was enroute to tournament-record of 21-under 267. She birdied 4 of the last 8 holes, beating Stacy Lewis by 4 strokes for the 2nd LPGA Tour triumph. Each shot six-under 66.
The last phase of the round was quite pleasing for Hur as she made 36-ft birdie putt right on number eleven & set up pretty easier birdies post that, including 1 in number sixteen. It was also great for her fans, who had a chance to back her on the William Hill golf betting at 20/1!
“After I could do that, I was certainly thinking about victory”, stated Hur. “The final 2 holes, I thoroughly cherished the game.”
She transcended from a relieved state to one of joyous tears prior to the 2nd shot on last hole whilst she wrapped up the 1st triumph since 2009. Kwan Moo, her dad, was her caddie & shared the moment with her while the victorious daughter bowed down crying for moments when the victory was made official.
“It’s certainly quite a thrilling week”, Hur continued. “I began with 2 birdies & it was extremely comfortable for me for the round. However, Stacy played really well & I surely contemplated about her. It was that I simply concentrated on my own golf & after 9 holes I could make some birdies on back nine.”
The winner lady opened with 64, 70 & 67 rounds on the links-style Capitol Hill Senator layout. Hur broke the esteemed tournament 19-under mark set by Hull-Kirk (Katherine) 4 years back. It was regarded as best of 72-hole score across Hur’s career so far.
