This week, the LPGA Tour travels to the Lone Star State for the Volunteers
of America North Texas Shootout in Irving. The top-4 players in the world are
in the field - Lydia Ko, Inbee Park, Stacy Lewis and Hyo Joo Kim.
Ko is coming off her second victory of the season last week at the Swinging
Skirts LPGA Classic. The 18-year-old has seven top-7 finishes in eight events
this year and currently leads the money list with over $900,000 in earnings.
The tournament is being held at Las Colinas Country Club. The course was
designed by Joe Finger in 1963. The 2013 tournament was the first time the
LPGA Tour has played in the North Texas region in over 20 years.
Last year, Lewis fired a 7-under 64 in the final round and cruised to a
6-stroke victory over Meena Lee. Lewis, who won for the ninth time on the LPGA
Tour, finished at 16-under-par 268. She broke Inbee Park's tournament scoring
record from 2013 by three strokes.
In 2013, Park birdied the 18th hole in the final round to hold off third-
round leader Carlota Ciganda and win the inaugural event by a single stroke.
Park entered the final round two strokes off the pace, but she was able to
grab the lead when Ciganda bogeyed No. 14 and tripped to a double bogey on the
next hole. Ciganda rallied with a birdie on the final hole to pull even with
her playing partner, but Park calmly followed with an 8-foot birdie make of
her own to lock up the victory. Park carded a final-round 4-under 67 and
ended 72 holes at 13-under 271.
The LPGA Tour heads to Virginia in two weeks for the Kingsmill Championship in
Williamsburg, where Lizette Salas won the 2014 title.
