Ladies Scottish Open 2017

Mi Hyang Lee: Ladies Scottish Open 2017 Winner

The 2017 Ladies Scottish Open held at Dundonald Links recently won “Sporting Event of the Year” at the Scottish Sport Awards. The ground-breaking event attracted a truly world class field, played on the same course as the Men’s Event.

Mi Hyang Lee of South Korea shot a six-under-par 66 in fine and breezy conditions to win the Aberdeen Asset Management Ladies Scottish Open by a stroke from Australian Karrie Webb and compatriot Mi Jung Hur, on a dramatic final day here at Dundonald Links.

The 24-year-old world number 49, from Incheon, wasted little time as she made six birdies against a bogey in her first nine holes to catch the experienced overnight co-leader Webb, before closing with a birdie on the 18th for a 72-hole total of 282, six-under-par.

She said afterwards: “It was really a surprise for me. My front nine was amazing, and then I think I got a good start from my first hole”.
