Moriya ties for second place at Ladies Scottish Open

Moriya ties for second place at Ladies Scottish Open

Mi Jung Hur closed with a terrific five-under-par 66 to secure a four-shot victory in the Ladies Scottish Open at a soggy Renaissance Club.

Lee, admittedly, finished nine shots behind the victor, Mi Jung Hur and was thankful after her round that she had avoided most of the heavy weather which built as the day went on.

It was her third LPGA title triumph, the first having come 10 years ago before having to wait five years and then another five ye ars for the next two victories to come along.

Overnight leader Moriya Jutanugarn (71) and US Women's Open champion Jeongeun Lee6 (70) tied for second place on 16-under.

"Gary was very good on Thursday when I bogeyed two holes in a row, he kept telling me I could win", she said.

South Korea's Mi Hyang Lee finished alone in fourth place after shooting 3-under 68 for the second straight day to finish at 15-under for the tournament. "That was working really well today and it bring me a good result".

She picked up a check for $225,000.

"Honestly I don't like links courses but after this week I love it", Hur told Sky Sports. "I just played with my confidence after that", she said. I three-putted from on the green and it was pretty short. "So that's why I've been starting playing a lot better than before".

Three further gains from the tenth saw Jutanugarn hit the front for the first time, a position she would not relinquish.

Low round of the day belonged to Australian 23-year-old Minjee Lee, who went bogey free in a round of 64 (-7). Overall, I think 4-under, pretty happy with it.
