Amy Yang Makes History with First American LPGA Victory and $2 Million Prize

The CME Group Tour Championship concluded with Amy Yang securing her first LPGA title on American soil. Yang’s final two birdies helped her win the tournament and claim a $2 million prize, matching the largest in women’s golf. Her 6-under 66 was enough to seal the victory, as she holed out for eagle on the 13th fairway, overcoming a three-shot deficit. Nasa Hataoka came in second, while Alison Lee tied with her. Lilia Vu, a two-time major champion, finished alone in fourth and won the LPGA player of the year award for the first time. With this win, Yang cemented her place in the history of women’s golf.
