A South Korean born golfer has won twice now on the Ladies European Tour aka the LET in 2008. From AP-
STOCKHOLM, Sweden — Amy Yang of South Korea spoiled Annika Sorenstam’s finale on home turf, tying the course record with a 9-under 63 Sunday for a six-shot victory at the Scandinavian TPC.
Amy Yang said she had no idea she could win Sunday, but a course-tying record 63 lifted her to victory.
Sorenstam, the tournament host, shot 72 and finished seven strokes back to tie for sixth with three other Swedes. She was greeted by a packed gallery on the 18th green.
The 19-year-old Yang captured her second win as a professional in the rain-shortened 54-hole tournament with a 14-under 202 total at the Frosaker Golf and Country Club.
“I never thought I could win the tournament,” said Yang, who accepted the trophy and a hug from Sorenstam. “The leader was four shots ahead of me, so I thought I’d just go out and have fun. I’m very happy.”
When will the European golf press start talking about the Asian invasion? Will anyone propose there be a LET quota for players from that part of the world?(Time to turn off the sarcasm)
Yang has been having a very impressive year. After her win in Germany, Amy Yang stood #1 on the LET money list. Yang has lost the top spot, but is like #2 or #3 now. If Yang wins a LPGA major in 2008 it will hardly come as a surprise.
