Mi-Jeong Jeon Wins 2016 Samantha Thavasa Girls Collection Golf Tournament

With no wins since 2013 and 2 missed cuts in her last 3 events, one could be forgiven for looking at now 23-time JLPGA champion Mi-Jeong Jeon of South Korea as a surprise winner. But with a 6-under 66 that propelled her from behind to a 10-under overall 1-shot victory at the 2016 Samantha Thavasa Girls Collection Golf Tournament, MJJ adds another trophy to an illustrious career. And let’s be clear, although she hasn’t matched the kind of play that won her the money list title in 2012 MJJ  has still been a solid top 25 player the last couple of years. In fact, her scoring average the last two years is actually better than it was from 2005 through 2008 when she was top 10 on the money list 3 times and 12th the other. She can’t control other players coming on tour and raising the bar. All that said, congratulations to Mi-Jeong Jeon. Here’s hoping she gets to 25 wins before her amazing career is over. Also, let me give a quick congrats to Megumi Kido for her 2nd place finish. A bogey on 17 coming home was very costly.
