So Yeon Ryo carded a 5-under par to take victory at the Meijer LPGA Classic this weekend, despite starting the final round two shot behinds Anna Nordqvist and Lee-Anne Pace.
A string of birdies during Sunday's closing round saw 29-year-old So Yeon Ryu from South Korea add yet another title to her list of LPGA Tour wins. The six-time winner and two-time major champion finished the tournament with a 5-under par round of 67 to win by two shots ahead of Caroline Masson, who holed an incredible 70-foot putt at the last for a round of 68 to claim her spot behind the winner.
Lydia Ko shot a 67 to finish third at 18-under par, whilst Anna Nordqvist and Lee-Anne Pace, who had led the field by two shots going into the closing day, both scored 73 to tie for fourth at 17-under par alongside Jacqui Concolino (66), Azahara Munoz (68) and Angela Stanford (70).
After her victory at the US Women's Open, Ariya Jutanugarn flirted with a 59 in yesterday's final round, with five birdies in her first seven holes. She had to make four birdies in the last four holes to accomplish the unthinkable, but managed just one more birdie on the par-5 16th for a tournament-record 62. Her bogey-free round of 10-under par is the best round of her LPGA career.
