Ga-young Lee of Korea defeated Yu Chiang Hou of
Taiwan in the 2016 Golf NSW Women’s Amateur
Lee was never headed in the event, getting off to
a flying start being 7up after 9 holes, taking just
29 strokes for the front nine along the way.
Hou staged somewhat of a comeback and by early
in the afternoon round, had managed to pare the
lead back to 1 hole.
Lee had too much in reserve however, and when
Hou missed a makeable par put on the par 3 15th
( 33rd hole) the match was over with 16-year old
Lee taking the match 4 and 3.
Speaking through an interpreter Lee was very
gracious about her win.
“It’s my biggest win and I’m glad I won.”
“I played well on the front nine, but the pressure
got me a bit on the back nine.”
“Hou Got better as the match went on, She
played very well.”
Lee plans to make a career as a professional on
the Japanese LPGA tour.
“ I want to be the best on the Tour.” She smiled.
