Second-year LPGA Tour member Amy Yang posted a career-low 6-under-par 66 during Sunday's final round of the CVS/pharmacy LPGA Challenge, and finished with a career-best tie for third. Her 14-under-par 274 (72-67-69-66) gave her a second top-10 finish of her 2009 season.
The South Korean player took advantage of the nearly perfect conditions by recording six birdies on the front nine, making the turn at 6-under. On the back nine, she added one more birdie on hole 10, before posting a bogey on 15. For her career, Yang now has three top-10 finishes. Coming into this week, her previous career-best was a tie for ninth, which she earned at the 2009 McDonald's LPGA Championship Presented by Coca-Cola, her best finish at a major championship.
