Bo-Mee Lee Wins 2015 Ito En Ladies Golf Tournament, Feted For Capturing JLPGA Season Money Title

What a season it has been for South Korea’s Bo-Mee Lee on the LPGA of Japan (JLPGA). She was brilliant yet again in seizing the 2015 Ito En Ladies Golf Tournament with a wire to wire victory. Bo-Mee threw down a first round 7-under 65 on her way to a 14-under 2 shot win. It’s her 6th JLPGA title of the year and 14th of her career. At only 27 years old, Lee should have many great seasons ahead of her. Season rival Teresa Lu was darn good herself with an opening round 6-under 66 followed by back to back 2-under 70 rounds. But that would only be good enough for a tie for 3rd at 10-under. With her 18 million Yen first prize (around $147,000 USD), Bo-Mee vaults past the 200 million Yen mark (over $1.6 million USD) for the 2015 season. She even received two money list cakes. Pardon me, I know this is the JLPGA and the pronunciation in Japanese is different but I have to translate the writing on the cake to Chinese. It really doesn’t matter, the meaning is the same. One cake says (in Mandarin Chinese) shang jin (賞金) “prize money/reward” and the other says nu wang (女王) “queen”.
