Hee-young Yang used a “shot eagle” to win the final event of the 2023 season on the Women’s Professional Golf (LPGA) Tour.
Hee-young Yang carded an eagle, five birdies and a bogey in the fourth round of the CME Group Tour Championship at Tiburon Golf Club Gold Course (Par 72) in Naples, Florida, USA, on Tuesday (July 20) to finish at 27-under-par 261. She won $2 million ($2.593 billion).
It was Yang’s fifth career victory in four years and nine months after winning the Honda LPGA Thailand in February 2019.
She is the third South Korean to win a season-ending tour championship, joining Jin Young Ko (2021, 2020) and Se Young Kim (2019).
