South Korean Jeongeun Lee6 wins the US Open of golf

Sports Editor, .- The South Korean Jeongeun Lee6 has won the US Open of golf, which has been played in Charleston (South Carolina, USA), with 278 strokes, two less than the second classified: the American Angel Yin and Lexi Thompson and also South Korean So Yeaon Ryula.

Lee6 thus obtains her first major in the women’s circuit and in the LPGA Tour, in which her maximum successes to date are a sixth in the Evian Championship in 2018 and a fifth in the Women’s Open.

The South Korean was aware of the French Celine Boutier until the last hole, which scored her third bogey and added four birdies, while Boutier, who dragged from the start the weight of a double bogey and a bogey (holes 1 and 3 ), closed the 18 with another double bogey that left him in fifth position. In the middle he had added two birdies for a bogey.

Also with 75 blows dismissed the championship the Chinese Yu Liu, who together with Boutier started today as leaders.

The Spaniard Carlota Ciganda, who recovered yesterday, was not successful and finished with 73 (+2). The pamplonica before arriving at the half of the route had already lost two blows with respect to the pair after committing a double bogey and two bogeys for a birdie, and in the nine final holes added two more birdies for a bogey. With 285 hits he was twenty-second.

The other Spanish, the malagueña Azahara Muñoz, who started the tournament well was dismissed however with 76 more impacts and a total of 291 that left him in 55th place.

Good taste in the mouth left the tournament in the Mexican Maria Fassi that in the last two days amended the course and with 283 hits was classified in the twelfth place.
