Na-Yeon Choi wins the Samsung LPGA Championship



Na-Yeon Choi who played record third round at the Torrey Pines GC of San Diego, didn't have the same touches in the final back-9 round while Ai Miyazato was playing brilliantly chasing the leader.

At the 16th, Miyazato started to lead the race by one stroke by virtue of a birdie while Choi made a bogey. Choi couldn't make her play going and was one stroke behind Miyazato until the last hole.

It was at the last hole when the fate changed in a drama of the second approach shots.
At the 18th, as Miyazato's second shot went into water with subsequent bogey, while Choi played with her calmness and composure to get a birdie, winning the championship outright.

It could have been an upset win of the century if Miyazato held on her lead or better, or won the possible play-off that could have happened without her mistake in the second shot to the green at the 18th. The Goddess of Golf wasn't at Miyazato's side. Choi's skill eventually came out to grab the championship at the critical moment.

It was one of the most exciting game.
I am really proud of her composure and mature manner to the final victory.
