Women’s PGA Championship highlights: Amy Yang finally wins her first major

The search for Amy Yang’s first major championship is finally over after winning the Women’s PGA Championship.

Amy Yang secured her first KPMG Women’s PGA Championship title at Sahalee Country Club, finishing with a 7-under-par 281. Yang clinched her victory by four strokes -which at one stage on the back nine was seven – ahead of second-place finishers Brooke Henderson and Lydia Ko.

Jeff Babineau wrote for the official Women’s PGA Championship site:

Finally, she carried the title she chased for so long, the one that kept her playing into her mid-30s: major champion. First, she was soaked in champagne on the 18th green by more than a dozen players from the LPGA who adore her. That’s a big number. And then, she just tried to soak in the moment, and just what it all meant.

“I always want to win a major and I came close several times,” said Yang, who shot even-par 72 to finish at 7-under 281, winning by three in the season’s third major championship. “You know, at one point I thought will I ever win a major championship before I retire? And I finally did it, and it’s just amazing.”
