Congratulations, Ruoning Yin!
Twenty-year-old Ruoning Yin earned her first LPGA Tour victory at the DIO Implant LA Open after posting a 1-under 70 round that was full of ups and downs. Starting the day with a two-stroke lead, Yin made her first and only par of the front nine on No. 1 before filling her card with color on Nos. 2-10. A birdie on 2 was followed by three-straight bogeys. She turned it around right after with four-consecutive birdies that led to a front-nine 34, still two strokes ahead of the nearest challenger. It wasn’t until she made the turn that the Chinese golfer began to think about winning.
