In Gee Chun had a record-breaking first round, and lead for the first 56 holes of the 2022 KPMG Women’s PGA Championship. On the 57th hole, that’s when her rocky start and Lexi Thompson’s equally good start, allowed Thompson to tie Chun for the lead. A couple of holes later and Thompson was in the lead and, for the first time in the tournament, Chun was the chaser.
Chun steadied herself after her shaky first nine and along with a couple of missed short putts by Thompson (one from 1.5 feet!), retook the lead and won the her 3rd major title by a shot over Thompson and Minjee Lee.
Chun had lead by 7 shots after the first round (she shot 8-under 64), five shots after 36 holes, and still had a 3-shot lead thru 54 holes. She finished the tournament at 5-under par.
