Wei-Ling Hsu earns first win at Pure Silk Championship


Moriya Jutanugarn held a two-shot lead on the 15th hole during the final round of the Pure Silk Championship on Sunday at 12 under.

She then found herself down two shots walking to the 16th tee.

The 2013 LPGA Rookie of the Year made a double bogey on the par-5 15th, while Wei-Ling Hsu — who entered tied for the lead at 10 under and was even par on the day at the time — made eagle to flip the leaderboard and increased her lead with a birdie on No. 16.

Hsu earned her first LPGA win at 13 under, playing the River Course at Kingsmill Resort in Williamsburg, Virginia, 3 under on Sunday. The victory also grants the 26-year-old access to the U.S. Women’s Open, held June 3–6 at Olympic Club in San Francisco.

The New Taipei City, Taiwan, resident will take home $195,000, bringing her season-total to $323,801 and career to $2,083,580.

When asked about what enabled her to pull through in the final round, Hsu gave the credit to everyone but herself.

“Just remember all my coach say, all my family said, especially on last night,” explained Hsu. “They told me it doesn’t matter what I finish, they still proud of me and they still feel like I’m a good player.”

Leaderboard: Pure Silk Championship

Jutanugarn — a late entry into the tournament after Brittany Lincicome pulled out — finished second at 11 under, followed by Jessica Korda in third at 10 under and Sarah Kemp at 9 under. Wichanee Meechai and Lizette Salas finished T-5 at 8 under.

Nelly Korda (T-25, -2) and Na Yeon Choi (T-31, -1) tied for the low round of the day, each shooting a 5-under 66.
