Lizette Salas Wins 2014 Kingsmill Championship presented by JTBC

It’s been fun watching everybody win on tour this year, especially a few of my favorites of favorites like Michelle Wie, Jessica Korda and Paula Creamer (man, I still can’t get that 75-footer out of my head…shot of the year hands down). But this week had even a little more magic in the air. Like many others, I’ve been hoping for Lizette Salas to capture her first LPGA victory. I love her story, her history, what’s she’s had to do to become the player she is today. To see the raw emotions pour out of her in triumph…it was very sweet. Lizette had built a 3 shot lead (13-under to 10-under) over her closest competitor, Hee Young Park, at the completion of the third round. Unfortunately, Hee Young had a day to forget, shooting 8-over and taking herself from solo 2nd after round three to a tie for 29th. Win or lose, I just hate to see a player implode like that on Sunday. Hee Young is a great player, a 2-time winner on tour. I hope she shakes this round off and doesn’t let it affect her going forward. With Park faltering, all Lizette had to do was not stumble herself. She didn’t. She shot an even round 71, but that’s all she needed to become a first time Rolex winner by 4 shots going away. One last comment. In addition to being ecstatic to see Lizette break through, I am pleased to see Yani Tseng coming back into form. Yani won’t like the double bogey finish on 18, but overall this was a great week for her. She seems like such a great person for whom it’s easy to root. I hope to see her back in the winner’s circle soon.
