Only one blemish on BML's card today, a bogey on #18...she pushed her drive right and ended up in a FW bunker...hit a hybrid into a greenside bunker...had a long bunker shot and left it well-short of the hole...two-putted. Otherwise, she was just dyn-o-mite!
That swing...what fabulous tempo and rhythm...her chipping and putting are completely anti-yip...and she's a babe to boot! There are ten open spots at Evian...will she skip that Major, too?! I think I figured it out: Japan is gaga over her...the border patrol won't let her leave the country. An interesting coincidence: Japan and Korea are playing their own Majors the same week as the Evian.
LMAO Are you trying to bait SayuSeRi to return and defend the most important and popular LPGA major?
Kind of miss SayuSeRi. Too bad you ran him off. Just Joking!!
Don't blame me...blame fanofseri.....he made a comment about a 'fake' Korean....SayuSeri took offense and bailed. I think fanofseri is a great guy who is so freakin funny....definitely a guy I'd want to play golf with followed by many libations....I'd score poorly cause he'd have me laughing my a*s off
The SBS Golf broadcast started with BML trailing Watanabe by three shots with six holes left to play. Then Lee threw a switch and it was over...reached the par-5 13th in two shots and two putted...stuffed it close for a kick-in birdie at the par-4 14th...made a long right-to-left curler for birdie at the par-4 15th. Meanwhile, Watanabe was a little crooked with the driver and could not save pars at #15 and #16.
It was Bo Mee's third win this year and eleventh on the JLPGA tour. Her money total of 136.7M Yen is closing fast on Sakura Yokomine's 2009 record of 175.0M Yen and there are 13 tournaments remaining on the schedule.
Congratulation to Bo-Mee for the tournament win. I would sure like to see her play a few tournaments here. I do not think joining the LPGA will happen anytime soon. She may get bored and try something new later.
With the 2015 LPGA of Japan heading into the fall schedule, South Korea’s Bo-Mee Lee bolstered her Player of the Year bid with her third win of the season. Lee captured the 2015 Nitori Ladies Golf Tournament with a 7-under 2 shot victory. It’s Bo-Mee’s 11th career JLPGA title. After finishing in a 6-way tie for first place after a 3-under 69 first round, Lee followed up with a second round 3-under 69 to open a 1 shot overnight advantage. Bo-Mee trailed Ayaka Watanabe (-6 to -7) on the back 9 until Watanabe went far right off the tee on #15 into the woods. Lee would bend a long right to left putt in for birdie while Watanabe bogeyed the hole to relinquish the lead. In addition to her 131.5 point lead over Teresa Lu for Player of the Year, Bo-Mee also has a nearly 53 million yen (around 435,000 USD) lead on the money list. Her 136,692,066 yen season total so far is around 1.1 million USD. Bo-Mee is yet another JLPGA star that I’d love to see play full-time here in the United States on the LPGA, but at 27-years old and making great money in Japan, I can’t see why the South Korean star would make a full-time overseas commitment. It’s our loss. She’s a special player.
