Lexi Thompson wins as Amy Yang shoots back-nine 27


The Solheim Cup taught us many things, one of which being that Lexi Thompson is capable of beating anyone on her day.

In Korea she shot a closing 69 for her second win of 2015 and sixth in her career.

Thompson beat Sung Hyun Park and Yani Tseng who came up just short of her first win in three years.

But the big talking point was Amy Yang’s back nine which was made up of a staggering nine straight birdies, tying the course record and was a first in the history of the LPGA Tour.

Lydia Ko could have moved back to the World No 1 spot with a win or runner-up finish but she could only tie for 4th.

“It's very satisfying,” Thompson said.

“I always look forward to coming back to South Korea and playing in front of these amazing fans. I love Sky 72. It's a great golf course. Getting a win, it means so much.”

Yang said: “I don't know what just happened. Just can't believe, first time. I think six in a row was my best. That's the first time. Shots were great.

“Early in the week I was shaky, but I don't know, this back nine was crazy good, plus putting.”
