No stopping Hur as Mi-jung wins Ladies Scottish Open

13 August 2019

The Koreans who dominate the LPGA and the world of women's golf are pretty much unflappable in any conditions and Mi Jung Hur proved it conquering the Scottish weather and terrain on her way to the Aberdeen Standard Management Scottish Open title at a sodden Renaissance yesterday.

Hur finished the tournament with a 20-under 264 to pick up the trophy.

It was Davies' first made cut in 11 LPGA Tour starts this year.

Overnight leader Moriya Jutanugarn could only manage a fourth-round 71 to finish in a tie for second with seventh-ranked Lee6 Jeongeun, as the Thai paid for a double-bogey on the second hole.

"I think am still in the competition because when I won 2017, it wasn't good weather and I was six strokes behind at that time so I really have confidence right now".

Asked when she felt she could go on and claim the win, she picked out the long 12th.

"I'm just trying to play my game and have fun out there", she said. I three-putted from on the green and it was pretty short.

Carly Booth, the 2012 victor, finished joint ninth after closing with a 71 for 274. The 55-year-old Hall of Famer aced the 152-yard fifth hole, her 12th career hole-in-one.

Three further gains from the tenth saw Jutanugarn hit the front for the first time, a position she would not relinquish.

"I can't complain", said the 27-year-old from Comrie, who picked up a cheque for £29,357, just less than her pay-day for winning seven years ago next door at Archerfield Links before the event became co-sanctioned between the LET and LPGA.

Scotland's Carly Booth, who posted a flawless round of 66 (-5), has shown signs of being back to her best form this year and today's impressive display will provide the local gallery with a welcome home-grown talent to support tomorrow.
