Bo-Mee Lee Wins 2015 Daio Paper Elleair Ladies Open, Her 7th JLPGA Title Of The Season

In the United States, on the LPGA Tour, there was a question going into the CME Group Tour Championship as to whether Lydia Ko or Inbee Park would emerge as the LPGA Player of the Year. In Japan, going into next week’s JLPGA Tour Championship Ricoh Cup, there is no doubt who the JLPGA Player of the Year is. After spending time this year fending off a challenge from Teresa Lu for top honors, Bo-Mee Lee has separated herself from the JLPGA field with back to back wins. A 16-under 5 shot victory at the 2015 Daio Paper Elleair Ladies Open cements the South Korean star’s supremacy in Japan. She began this year with 8 career JLPGA titles. 7 wins later she has a chance to double her career victory total in just one season at next week’s calendar ending JLPGA Major. They might as well just give Bo-Mee a chair on stage at the JLPGA Awards Ceremony. It’ll save time and effort as she looks to capture Player of the Year, the scoring title, record money list total, greens in regulations, putting average, sand saves, victories…well, you get the point. The only thing missing from her 2015 resumé is a JLPGA Major. Check back in a week and we’ll see if Bo-Mee ends the year scratching that accomplishment off her list.

  1. Another big win for Bo Mee Lee. I think she is good enough to play here in the US with the LPGA though I would hate to see her leave the JLPGA because she seems so comfortable playing in Japan but she is really talented.

    • I doubt she would leave Japan. The money is very good on that tour if she keeps winning.She’s made over 1.8 million USD so far with a Major still left to be played…and she’s much closer to home (South Korea).
