No. 1 seed Na Yeon Choi
won the consolation match at the Sybase Match Play Championship over Angela Stanford, 4 and 3. After falling to Cristie Kerr
on the 18th hole of her morning semifinal match, Stanford was slow to get things going against Choi. Last year’s LPGA Official Money List winner, Choi won five of the first nine holes and took a 4 UP lead into the turn. She continued to charge on the back nine, winning the 10th hole to extend her lead to 5 UP. But Stanford won the 12th and the 14th with pars to cut Choi’s lead to 3 UP with four to play. Choi closed-out the match with her par on the 15th to take a 4 and 3 victory and earn the third place finish. Choi now has four top-10 finishes this year, as she tied her best finish of the year (T3 at the Avnet LPGA Classic).
