Chun claims Women’s PGA Championship – Golf News


In Gee Chun claimed a one-shot victory at the Women’s PGA Championship at Congressional Country Club after Lexi Thompson bogeyed two of her final three holes.

Chun went into the final round three shots clear of the field, but in windy conditions hit four bogeys on the front nine and allowed the chasers, which included Thompson, to come back at her.

Chun, 27, a previous US Open and Evian Championship winner, finished one shot ahead of the field on five under, despite carding back-to-back rounds of 75 over the weekend.

Thompson tied with Australia’s Minjee Lee for second. England’s Georgia Hall finished tied 21st on +2, while compatriot Mel Reid was two shots further back in a tie for 30th.
