Amy Yang captures her 1st American LPGA title, cashes in on $2 million US
Amy Yang picked a lucrative time for her first LPGA title on American soil.
Yang birdied her last two holes for a 6-under 66 to win the CME Group Tour Championship and claim the $2 million US prize, matching the largest in women's golf.
"I was so nervous down the stretch," Yang said. "But I try to tell myself: `I can do this. I can do this.' I'm so happy I made it."
The victory was her fifth on the LPGA Tour, the previous four coming in Asia.
Brooke Henderson of Smiths Falls, Ont., shot a final round of 71 to finish 12th at 15 under.
A moment Amy Yang will never forget
