Ashleigh Buhai finally got her first win on the LPGA Tour, winning the season’s final major at the AIG Women’s Open at Muirfield on the 4th playoff hole over In Gee Chun. Buhai started the final round with a 5-stroke lead but ran into trouble on the 15th, making a triple-bogey 7 to see her lead evaporate.
On the 4th playoff hole, with the sun pretty much set, Buhai made a clutch up-and-down from the greenside bunker to win the championship, her first in 15 years playing the LPGA.
Your 2022 Champion, @ash_simon!
