Taipei, June 18 (CNA) Taiwanese golfer Teresa Lu (盧曉晴) fired a one-under round of 71 on Sunday to
score a five-shot victory at the Nichirei Ladies tournament in Japan.
It was her second title of the year on the Ladies Professional Golfers’ Association of Japan tour, following a win at the Studio Alice Women’s Open in April, and the 14th of her career on the JLPGA.
Her final round 71 gave her a three-day score of 204, or 12 under par, to finish five shots clear of Saki Takeo, Rumi Yoshiba and Miyu Shinkai of Japan in the 80 million Japanese yen tournament.
Lu entered Sunday’s final round with a comfortable four-shot cushion over Shinkai, but that lead was down to one after seven holes. [FULL STORY]
