Bo-Mee Lee Wins 2013 Hisako Higuchi Morinaga Weider Ladies

Bo-Mee Lee

Early in the final round of the 2013 Hisako Higuchi Morinaga Weider Ladies, Yuko Fukuda set a course record of 65. Overnight leader Bo-Mee Lee finished the day by matching that course record en route to a commanding 5 shot victory at a tournament record 15-under. She came out on fire, birdying 3, 5, 6 and 7 and then collecting 3 more birdies on a clean card to notch her second victory of the season. Her first was the Japan LPGA Championship Konica Minolta Cup, a Major. Lee’s victory at Morinaga Weider was also her 5th career JLPGA title. There are still 4 JLPGA events remaining, with season ending titles still up for grabs among the likes of Rikako Morita, Sakura Yokomine, Miki Saiki and Sun-Ju Ahn. This win keeps Bo-Mee Lee alive in those possibilties as well. Some other notables familiar to American LPGA fans; Shanshan Feng finished in solo 3rd at 9-under, Jiyai Shin tied for 4th at 8-under, Soo Yun Kang tied for 11th at 5-under and Momoko Ueda tied at 34th with even par.
