Hur, who started the last round a shot adrift at the Renaissance Club, started slowly by making a bogey at the par 4 3rd hole, allowing Lee6 and Jutanugarn to take the lead before igniting her challenge on the ninth hole with a birdie.

Never losing faith, Hur’s caddie Scotland’s Gary Marshall, who resides less than 30 minutes away, reiterated the same words he mentioned on the 4th hole in round one.

“Come on, MJ, you can win this tournament.”

Clearly having a calming influence on the 29-year-old, Hur went on to make a further three birdies after the turn to grab the outright lead for the first time, with the birdie on the 12th giving her the confidence she needed.


“After that, I felt I can win this tournament and I just played with confidence.”

Hur continued, “I didn’t want to look at scoreboards but there’s so many on the course.”

“I don’t know why but before I didn’t like links courses but after this week, I will just keep saying I love links courses.”

Holding a slender one-shot lead with three to go, Hur birdied the 16th and closed with a grandstand finish at the 18th, hitting a 9 iron to 5ft before calmly rolling home for victory and a winners’ cheque of $225,000.

Four shots adrift in T2 was 2019 U.S. Open winner Jeongeun Lee6, who made a credible links debut at 16-under-par alongside Moriya Jutanugarn, who did everything she could to keep the trophy in the family.

Jutanugarn said, “I got off to a pretty bad start but trying to get back and just give myself a chance out there. I just tried to focus on myself and play my game and try and have fun.”

Lee6 said, “Overall I’m pretty satisfied with all my scores and shots, and so I think this is kind of a good — a lot of good memories and playing the first time on a links golf course.”


Scotland’s Carly Booth won the Douglas Lowe Memorial Trophy, given to the highest place Scot. She finished in T9 at 10-under-par after a closing round of 71. The in-form Scot went as many as 50 holes without a bogey from the middle of her second round to the 16th of round four.

Booth said, “I mean, I can’t complain. It was a shame to have two bogeys in the last three holes but I had a good week and I’ll take my Top-10.”

“I’m lucky enough to have an invite to play here this week, and to finish Top-10, I should be very happy.”

Australia’s Minjee Lee lived up to yesterday’s promise, playing ‘aggressively’ over the course of the weekend, the 23-year-old jumped further up the leaderboard with a round of 67 (-4) to finish in T6 – the highest finisher of the field that played in the worse conditions in the first two days.

The final total for this year’s Birdie Pledge, to help raise money for Dementia UK, was £7,556 with 1339 birdies and 43 eagles made during the week as well as three hole-in-ones.
