Standing on the 17th tee during the third and final round of the 2016 T-Point Ladies Golf Tournament, overnight leader Ha-Neul Kim needed another flash of lightning like she had in the 2nd round when she scored a hole-in-one on the par 3 17th. Instead of an ace, Kim would go on to bogey the hole. It was emblematic of a tough day that saw her go 2-over and fall from 1st (-7) to tied for 5th (-5). It would be Kaori Ohe capturing her 2nd JLPGA victory with a 1-under round that left her alone atop the leaderboard at 7-under. A solid top 35 player over the past 4 years, this is Ohe’s first victory since the 2012 Fujisankei Ladies Classic. She takes home ¥12,600,000 (about 113,000 USD).

I missed Bo-Mee Lee’s victory last week at Yokohama, so I’d just like to take a moment to applaud another hot start to the season from last year’s player of the year. That marked her 16th JLPGA tournament win. She finished tied for 2nd here at T-Point, giving her three top 5s in three events so far, including a title and a runner-up. This is as special a player as I’ve seen on the JLPGA. With her game, her style, her star presence and megawatt smile, Bo-Mee should follow Prince Akeem and come to America!
