Bo-Mee Lee made 4 birdies on the front and 3 on the back in the final round of the Hisako Higuchi Morinaga Weider Ladies to win going away. Her bogey-free 65 left her 5 shots ahead of Sun-Ju Ahn, 6 away from Shanshan Feng, and 7-up on Ji-Yai Shin, 20-year-old Ayaka Watanabe, and Yuko Fukuda (who closed with a 65 of her own). With her 2nd win of 2013 and 5th in 2 seasons on the JLPGA, Lee moves into 6th on the JLPGA money list, within hailing distance of Rikako Morita and Sakura Yokomine, who both finished well back in the pack, as did Mika Miyazato and Momoko Ueda. She also continues the South Korean resurgence on the JLPGA during which they have won 5 of the last 8 events on tour and been denied only by Miyazato and Yokomine.
So here’s how the list looks now, with only 4 tournaments remaining on the 2013 schedule:
1. Rikako Morita ￥105.10M
2. Sakura Yokomine ￥101.52M
3. Miki Saiki ￥80.62M
4. Sun-Ju Ahn ￥78.13M
5. Yumiko Yoshida ￥73.07M
6. Bo-Mee Lee ￥70.34M
7. Mamiko Higa ￥64.50M
8. Natsuka Hori ￥64.27M
16. Onnarin Sattayabanphot ￥43.92M
19. Da-Ye Na ￥42.05M
The top 50 keep their cards for 2014, so it’s worth noting that Ayako Uehara is at #51, Ji-Yai Shin at #54, Momoko Ueda at #55, Yuko Mitsuka at #61, Bo-Bae Song at #66, Li-Ying Ye at #68, Shinobu Moromizato at #70, Hyun-Ju Shin at #71, Ai Miyazato at #79 (in only 2 starts), and Chie Arimura at #122 (in only 3 starts).
