Park Wins Shortened LPGA Texas Classic

Due to torrential rain storms that blanketed the greater Dallas area, LPGA officials decided to reduce the 2018 edition of the Volunteers of America Texas Classic to 36 holes.

So after four days of stops and starts, while trying to cobble together 36 holes at the Old American Golf Club, it was Korea’s Sung Hyun Park who came out on top, winning by one stroke over America’s Lindy Duncan.

Park, who entered her final 18 holes on Sunday tied for the lead with compatriot Jenny Shin at 6-under par, stumbled out of the gate, making a bogey on No. 1. But the young Korean recovered nicely with an eagle on No. 4, followed by birdies on Nos. 6, 8 and 9 to turn at 10 under par.

A final gain on the 18th hole allowed Park to sign for a 5-under par 66 and reach 11 under, good for a one-shot win over the American Duncan, who posted a 64 to reach solo-second at 10 under par.

“I knew it was a pretty important shot,” said Park, of her final birdie on No. 18.
