Ecuador's Daniela Darquea wins IOA Championship

Daniela Darquea (Quito, Ecuador) holed out for eagle on the 13th and drained birdie on 18 to win the IOA Championship by three shots with a final-round 5-under, 67 on Sunday. She finished with a three-day total of 12-under, 204, the lowest winning score in the three years at Morongo Golf Club at Tukwet Canyon.

Darquea’s victory is historic as she becomes the first player in the history of the Symetra Tour or the LPGA from Ecuador to win.


Mirim Lee Captures 2017 Kia Classic for her Third LPGA Victory

Two years after finishing runner-up at the Kia Classic, this time Mirim Lee is going home a winner.

Lee took a one-stroke lead into the final round, sleeping on the 54-hole lead at the Kia Classic for the second time in her career. Sunday, Lee put her foot on the accelerator and didn’t look back - she made birdie on the first and then every other hole on her outward nine to extend her lead.


Mirim Lee holds 54-Hole Lead at Kia Classic

Mirim Lee must be feeling a sense of déjá vu.

Saturday, Mirim Lee carded a five-under-par 67 to take the outright lead at the Kia Classic at 13-under par. Two years ago, Lee also held the 54-hole lead in Carlsbad with Cristie Kerr in an identical position, three strokes back and chasing Lee heading into Sunday. The last time Lee held the third-round lead was in Carlsbad in 2015, but is hoping the outcome will be different this time around. 


Kerr Holds 36-Hole Lead at Kia Classic, Ko misses the cut

While the youth movement has dominated headlines in recent months, this week it’s veteran Cristie Kerr who holds the 36-hole lead in Carlsbad. Two of those young stars, Lydia Ko and Brooke Henderson, failed to make the cut this weekend for just the second time since joining the LPGA Tour.

Kerr held a share of the first-round lead with Mo Martin and In Gee Chun but she pulled away from the pack. The major champion started her day on the back nine and led by as many as three strokes before getting weary on the inward stretch


Chun, Kerr, Martin Share First-Round Lead at Kia Classic

In Gee Chun, Cristie Kerr and Mo Martin share the first round lead at the Kia Classic. The trio sits at six-under par, two strokes clear of Moriya Jutanugarn, Hyo Joo Kim, Marissa Steen, Alison Lee, Karine Icher and Mirim Lee at four-under par.

In Gee Chun was seemingly on fire on her inward nine, reeling off birdies at holes 12, 13, 15, 16 and 17 to pull into a tie for the lead. But the par-4 18th was almost her downfall. After nearly finding the water on her tee shot, Chun’s second from just inside the hazard line landed 60 feet from the hole. She put too much speed on her birdie attempt, sending it 15 feet past, but firmly knocked in the comebacker to keep her name atop the leader board.


Tiffany Joh happy to be home for Kia Classic

The Kia Classic always feels like a home game for Tiffany Joh, who grew up in San Diego and loves spending her free time surfing at Terra Mar, just one exit away from Aviara Golf Club.

“I snuck in a surf session yesterday,” said Joh with a smile. “I don't know if people appreciated me showing up to the course all salty, but I showered.”


Anna Nordqvist Captures Seventh Career Victory at the 2017 Bank of Hope Founders Cup

An exciting finish to this year’s Bank of Hope Founders Cup, Anna Nordqvist held off In Gee Chun, Stacy Lewis and Ariya Jutanugarn to pick up her first of the 2017 season.

Nordqvist held a two-stroke lead entering the final round at Wildfire Golf Club and fired final round 4-under par, 68.  She had an impressive four days carding 26 birdies, one eagle, and three bogeys to finish at 25-under par for the tournament.


Hae Rym Kim wins SGF67 World Ladies Championship with SBS in play-off

Overnight leader Hae Rym Kim held her nerve to win a dramatic two-hole play-off against fellow South Korean Seon Woo Bae at the SGF67 World Ladies Championship with SBS in China, a tri-sanctioned event between the LET, CLPGA and KLPGA Tours.

Kim holed a four-foot birdie putt on the second play-off hole, the par-5 18th on the Blackstone Course at Mission Hills Resort Haikou, to become the fourth straight South Korean winner of the title, following Inbee Park, So Yeon Ryu and Jung Min Lee.


Anna Nordqvist Shoots Tournament Record to take 2-stroke Lead at the Bank of Hope Founders Cup

On a day when low scores were abundant at Wildfire Golf Club, it was Anna Nordqivst’s 61 that took the lead in round three of the Bank of Hope Founders Cup.  Nordqvist 11-under par in Saturday’s round set a new tournament course record, previously a round of 62 set in 2016.

The score ties her career low round, which she previously shot in the third round of the 2013 Mobile Bay LPGA Classic.
