Though many may be disappointed to miss out on defending a title by a few strokes, Amy Yang is walking away from the Honda LPGA Thailand with her head held high. Yang fought to the very end, opening her final round with six birdies in her first seven holes. After a bogey on No. 9, Yang finished with birdies on No. 10, 15 and 18 to end her day with a 64 and at -20 in a tie for third. Yang, who said playing at Siam Country Club is one of her favorite locations on Tour, was just grateful for the opportunity to return to Thailand.
“My putting was working so well, especially on the front nine. Just I know I said it, like keep it simple all week, but all I did was just read the line, pick a target, and put a good stroke and good speed in it. It just worked,” said the three-time Honda LPGA winner. “You know, always looking forward to the next hole because past is past, and really enjoyed the game today.”
Yang said she gained a nice confidence boost from her play this week, and will be taking off until the U.S. Women’s Open after playing four consecutive weeks. She said she wants to relax a bit and work on her short game and putting before she gears up for the summer months ahead.
“I'm going to take three weeks off from now and just going to recharge a little bit and get ready for U.S. Open and all summer season,” said Yang. “I'll put down the clubs for few days then I'll get back to it. Just want to like work on same stuff.”
