Lu Wins First Professional Title with Mizuno Classic Success
Teresa Lu has ended an eight-year wait for her first professional title by claiming victory in Mie, Japan, at the Mizuno Classic.
Lu carded the lowest round of the week by overcoming a two-stroke deficit; she finished two stokes clear of nearest pack-chaser Chella Choi.
Both Choi and Lu began to the day’s final play on the heels of a Japanese trio but both golfers excelled through to the final few holes, with the impressive Lu finishing with an eight-under 64 to claim a hard-fought and much-deserved victory.
“I’ve been waiting for this day for so long,” said Lu. “This is my first win; it’s been eight years on Tour. I’m really happy. Really nervous and really happy.
“I knew I had to go lower and get more birdies otherwise I was going to get in a playoff. Its better not a playoff. So I focus on the birdie.”
