The top of the leaderboard at the 2015 Golf 5 Ladies Professional Golf Tournament read like a who’s who of the 2015 LPGA of Japan season. Teresa Lu and Momoko Ueda are both in the top 5 of the money list, player of the year rankings and scoring average. Sun-Ju Ahn is third in scoring. But in the end, via a playoff, it was Bo-Mee Lee (the first and second round leader) who would survive a charge from Misuzu Narita on the final day to win her 4th JLPGA title of the year and 12th of her career.

After missing a birdie putt high on the final hole of regulation, Bo-Mee found herself in a playoff battle with Narita after both finished regulation play at 11-under. Bo-Mee was in serious trouble on the second playoff hole when Misuzu almost chipped in for birdie and had a tap-in par putt. Meanwhile, Bo-Mee had chipped around 15 feet short of the hole (maybe even a few feet longer) but poured in a clutch putt to keep herself alive. Playing the par 4 18th hole over and over, Bo-Mee finally separated herself from Misuzu on the fifth playoff hole when Misuzu found the woods with her tee shot. Narita would miss a long par putt high. With a successful tap-in par, Bo-Mee would capture the tournament and reaffirm her standing as the Queen of the JLPGA for the 2015 season.
