Ji Wins U.S. Women’s Open with Climactic Birdie
Final round highlights.
I MISSED IT. On the road all day, I didn’t see a single shot of the final round of the U.S. Women’s Open at Saucon Valley. So here’s a quick snapshot.
Eun-Hee Ji recovered from a double-bogey on the 10th hole and went on to play the last six holes in three-under par to snatch the title. The late charge included a dramatic 20-foot birdie putt on the 72nd hole.
“I didn’t even dream about winning this tournament, but, well, I did it, and I think this is going to be one of the most memorable moments in my life,” Ji said.
Third-round leader Cristie Kerr struggled to a 75 and tied for third with In-Kyung Kim. Candie Kung finished alone in second.
