Ciganda and Muñoz share lead on the Costa del Sol

Carlota Ciganda and Azahara Muñoz thrilled the Spanish galleries as they fired matching third rounds of 67 to share the lead heading into the final round of the Andalucia Costa del Sol Open de España Femenino at Club de Golf Guadalmina.

The former Solheim Cup partners started the day one stroke behind rising English star Georgia Hall, who was two strokes clear when she was unsettled by a double-bogey on the par-3 fifth hole, but they ended the day at 16-under-par and three strokes clear of Hall (71).


Hall one clear of Ciganda and Muñoz in Spain

Georgia Hall fired a second round of 67 to take a one stroke lead at the halfway stage of the Andalucía Costa del Sol Open de España Femenino. At 12-under-par, she is one stroke ahead of Carlota Ciganda and home-town heroine Azahara Muñoz, who equalled the course record with a 64, only to be followed by another 64 from Supamas Sangchan of Thailand moments later.


In hot and sunny conditions at Real Club de Golf Guadalmina, Hall birdied the 11th, 13th and 17th on her first nine, adding further birdies at the fifth and seventh. She said afterwards: “I hit the ball better today, I just didn’t hit it close enough to the pin with my approach shots. It’s always good to have a bogey-free round and it got a bit windy on the back nine, so I’m happy with today’s score. The pins were not much harder, so you could attack them, but I putted well again today. Aza played great today. She holed some really good putts and shot eight-under.”


So Yeon Ryu Wins 2017 Rolex ANNIKA Major Award

So Yeon Ryu, of the Republic of Korea, has won the 2017 Rolex ANNIKA Major Award, which recognizes the player who has the most outstanding record in all five major championships during the current LPGA Tour season.

Ryu received the honor thanks to her win at the ANA inspiration, her second career major championship victory, and a tie for third at the U.S. Women’s Open Championship. 


Nordqvist downs Altomare in wet playoff to win Evian Championship

Moriya Jutanugarn held a three-stroke lead when she hit her tee shot at the par-5 13th. Once she walked off the green, she trailed by one. She was caught by Anna Nordqvist.

The Swede mounted a Sunday charge with a 5-under 66 to come from five strokes back of Jutanugarn, the 36-hole leader, to force a playoff with Brittany Altomare. Tied at 9-under par, the pair returned to the par-4 18th, where Nordqvist defeated Altomare with a bogey in the pouring rain and hail to win the Evian Championship.


Hannah Green Cards Course Record 64 to Win Murphy USA El Dorado Shootout

Two weeks ago, Hannah Green (Perth, Australia) wrote the letters “LPGA” with a smiley face on her golf glove as a constant reminder of the ultimate goal. It became a reality on Sunday at the Murphy USA El Dorado Shootout as she broke the Mystic Creek course record with a bogey-free 8-under, 64 to win at 11-under, 205, which is a 3-day tournament record. Green edged Celine Boutier (Montrouge, France) by one shot.

Green’s second win and the $15,000 payday vaults her from sixth to fourth on the Volvik Race for the Card money list and with just three events left, she secures a spot on the LPGA Tour for the 2018 season. Green has now earned $76,290 in 17 starts as a rookie on Tour. 


Moriya Jutanugarn takes charge at Evian Championship

Much of the talk about Ariya Jutanugarn’s success on Tour has been about how it will grow the game in her home country of Thailand, but the person who perhaps has been the most inspired by all she has accomplished is right in her own home.

Moriya Jutanugarn has enjoyed a front row seat to her sister’s success over the last two seasons and been her biggest cheerleader. And while Moriya was the first of the duo to join the Tour, it was Ariya who first learned to win, breaking out with five victories in 2016 including her first major title. Sunday, as Moriya chases her first career win she also has a chance to make history. With a victory at the Evian Championship, Moriya would cement the Jutanugarns in golfing history as the only pair of siblings to win major titles on the LPGA Tour. 


Sung Hyun Park blitzes field to open with 63 at Evian Championship

Sung Hyun Park opened with an 8-under 63 at the Evian Championship for the second consecutive year to take the early lead on day one at the season’s final major. What she hopes this time around is that she’ll be the one holding the trophy, not finishing runner-up.

The 23-year-old Korean cruised to the early lead in France with the same cool and calm demeanor she’s showed throughout her young career. That self-assurance has already earned her two victories in her rookie season, including what will likely be the first of many majors with her win in July at the U.S. Women’s Open. Friday, she began her quest for her third win of the season and second major title by going out in 30 with four birdies and a chip in for eagle at the par-5 13th. Park started her day on the back nine.


Lexi Thompson wins Inaugural Indy Women in Tech Championship

Since 1956, every winner of the Indianapolis 500 has taken a swig of ice-cold milk in Victory Lane, one of the most venerated traditions in sports. Yesterday, the first female athlete joined that tradition. And to Lexi Thompson, milk has never tasted so good.

With a lights-out 19-under 197 at Brickyard Crossing Golf Course, Thompson captured the inaugural Indy Women in Tech Championship presented by Guggenheim by four strokes over Lydia Ko and became the first LPGA player to enjoy the milk tradition of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. 


Wendy Doolan wins LPGA T&CP Championship

Despite her 17-year career on the LPGA Tour, Wendy Doolan had never experienced the feeling of entering a final round with a lead. So it was understandable that the veteran player had some nerves entering Wednesday’s final round of the LPGA T&CP Championship but she didn’t need to worry as she carded a final-round 74 to capture a five-shot victory, a $10,000 winner’s check and her first ever title in this championship.

“I feel grateful to be a part of the T&CP and I feel grateful that there is an opportunity to play after my LPGA career and I’m enjoying the challenge of golf again,” Doolan said. “It’s nice to have my name on the trophy. I’m just more grateful to be a part of this organization and to have the opportunity to play again.”
