Lee wins Mizuno Classic
Mi Hyang Lee won a five-hole, sudden-death playoff to claim her first ever LPGA Tour title at the Mizuno Classic in Japan on Sunday.
The 21-year-old made the play-offs after finishing the third and final round on 11-under, tied for first place with fellow South Korean Ilhee Lee and Japan’s Kotomo Kozuma.
Lee carded a three-under 69 after shooting four birdies and a bogey at the Kintestsu Kashikojima Country Club on Sunday, while Kozuma shot five birdies and four bogeys to also sign for 69 and Ilhee Lee scored 70 after two three birdies and a bogey.
The trio carded identical scores on the first four holes of the play-off, making par on the first two holes, birdying the third and again meeting par on the fourth.
Mi Hyang Lee was the last to play what would be the final hole and, after watching her opponents make par, she drained put for a birdie to take the win.
Lee’s victory earns her $180 000 and 500 ranking points, which moves her up to 23rd in the Race to CME Globe.
