Ji Wins U.S. Womens Open

Eun Hee Ji of Korea wins the 2009 U.S. Womens Open on the 72nd hole with a birdie. Ji finished the tournament at EVEN par. Candie Kung of Taiwan finished second at +1 over par. Once again Saucon Valley Country Club hosted another brilliant major tournament. Look forward to another visit to this gem of a golfing mecca! Hopefully as a guest of a member!

Ji on Friday.

Kung on Saturday.

My pick for fan favorite was Suzann Pettersen from Norway. I found out that she has a relative living in Bethlehem! Perhaps she'll visit the Lehigh Valley more often? On my mother's side of the family are Peterson's (unlike Pettersen; minus the extra 'T' and 'son' instead) but we're Swedish! Anyway, Suzann finished T6 place. Nice playing SP!
