Bo-Mee Lee Wins 2015 Nitori Ladies Golf Tournament

With the 2015 LPGA of Japan heading into the fall schedule, South Korea’s Bo-Mee Lee bolstered her Player of the Year bid with her third win of the season. Lee captured the 2015 Nitori Ladies Golf Tournament with a 7-under 2 shot victory. It’s Bo-Mee’s 11th career JLPGA title. After finishing in a 6-way tie for first place after a 3-under 69 first round, Lee followed up with a second round 3-under 69 to open a 1 shot overnight advantage. Bo-Mee trailed Ayaka Watanabe (-6 to -7) on the back 9 until Watanabe went far right off the tee on #15 into the woods. Lee would bend a long right to left putt in for birdie while Watanabe bogeyed the hole to relinquish the lead. In addition to her 131.5 point lead over Teresa Lu for Player of the Year, Bo-Mee also has a nearly 53 million yen (around 435,000 USD) lead on the money list. Her 136,692,066 yen season total so far is around 1.1 million USD. Bo-Mee is yet another JLPGA star that I’d love to see play full-time here in the United States on the LPGA, but at 27-years old and making great money in Japan, I can’t see why the South Korean star would make a full-time overseas commitment. It’s our loss. She’s a special player.
