South Korea’s Yong Eun Yang, 51, tied for fourth on the PGA of America’s Champions Tour, earning her eighth top-10 finish of the season.
Yang carded a 1-under 71 in the final three rounds of the Dominion Energy Charity Classic ($2.2 million) at The Country Club of Virginia (par-72) in Richmond, Virginia, USA, on Wednesday to finish the tournament in a tie for fourth place with Mike Weir (CAN) and Scott Macaron (USA) at 9-under 207.먹튀검증
It was his eighth top-10 of the season and his first in three weeks after a tie for fifth at the Pure Insurance Championship last month. It is the fourth time in eight top-10s that she has finished in the top five.
Yang, who was born in 1972, began playing on the Champions Tour last year in the 50-and-over category. While he has yet to win, he has settled in perfectly in his second year. In his first year, he had three top-10 finishes, but this year he more than doubled that to eight. As for prize money, last year he earned $715,096, but this year he’s already earned $1,125,221. The tournament’s fourth-place prize is $108,866.
Yang, who entered the final round in a tie for second place, made back-to-back birdies on the first and second holes, raising hopes of an upset victory. However, a dropped tee shot on the par-3 fourth hole saw her drop three strokes at once and slip out of contention. She then bogeyed one and added three birdies to move into a tie for fourth place, her fourth top-five finish of the season.
Choi, 53, shaved three strokes off her final day total to finish at 4-under par 212 and tied for 15th.
Harrison Frazier (USA), who carded an 11-under-par 205 total, defeated Richard Green (AUS) in a playoff.
Frazier birdied the 18th hole (par-5) in the playoff to beat Greene, who settled for par, for his first Champions Tour victory.
