Jang: It’s amazing
Ha-Na Jang reacts to her career-low seven under 64 that saw her win the HSBC Women's Champions in Singapore on Sunday.
The South Korean had a three stroke lead when she walked onto the 18th tee and was five under for the round. Little did Jang know, she would finish in fine style.
After a decent drive, Jang crunched her 3 wood, caught a kind bounce off the undulating fairway and was left with just six feet for a closing eagle.
"It's amazing right now, because last, eagle, is very fun, very enjoy, exciting in my mind," the 23-year-old told the LPGA website.
"It's very comfortable today but it's really, really happy this year because two wins right now, very happy.
"Target in 2016 is two wins, but right now, I'm there, so going to change my target from two more wins, so very comfortable right now.
"No. 18 on the second shot, I just try right side of bunker my target, was a little bit miss. I say, don't hit the tree, don't hit the tree, just go on the green please and perfect finish, it's amazing. My mind is like, oh, my God, this is my shot. It's amazing.”
The win could see Jang move up the rankings from tenth and has done wonders for her Olympic hopes. However, she is more focused on playing consistent golf.
"I don’t want to think about the Olympics and the ranking, everything," said Jang.
"I'm playing golf every week and every tournament I enjoy, but I'm a little more – the targets, I think about it. But I don't want to think about ranking and Olympics and International Crown, just I want more enjoy playing golf, no pressure."
