No stopping Hur as Mi-jung wins Ladies Scottish Open

Minjee Lee

Minjee Lee was forced to make a late birdie in her second round of 73 at the Aberdeen Standard Investments Ladies Scottish Open in North Berwick just to make the cut on Friday but weekend rounds of 64 and 67 have seen her fight her way into a share of 6th place in the LPGA Tour event. "After I made two bogeys after one birdie, I was mad and he told me on the fourth tee box, "come on, MJ, you can win this tournament", said the 29-year-old after ending up doing just that at The Renaissance Club.

After playing the first eight holes in 1-over par, Hur had four straight birdies from the ninth and also birdied Nos.

"In the first round, after I made two bogeys after one birdie, I was mad and he told me on the fourth tee box, "come on, MJ, you can win this tournament", said the victor. "Not much wind and there was no rain, but about five holes, maybe six holes to go, it started raining off and on, pretty constant. I'm probably going to be quite a few shots back, but obviously that means I can be pretty aggressive and I don't have to leave anything out there". "He was the same today when I three-putted the third hole". "I hope it's more closer (laughing)!"

None of the other challengers could manage better than one-under figures on the back nine, leaving her home if not entirely dry by the time she was on the 18th fairway. "So yeah, I'm happy with 11-under".

She was doused with a bottle of champagne by her husband after finishing at 20-under 264 for her third LPGA victory, maintaining her record of winning once every five years, following previous successes in 2009 and 2014.
