LPGA Drive On Championship R3

Danielle Kang wins by one shot in Ohio

July 31 – August 02
Inverness Club, Toledo, Ohio
$1,000,000
Round 1, Round 2




Danielle Kang closed with a 2-under 70 and held on for a one-shot victory over Celine Boutier in the LPGA Drive On Championship at Inverness in the first LPGA Tour event since February.


“I made sure I played golf as much as I did normally, not because I had to but because I wanted to,” Kang said. “I’m so thankful for the time. I tried to make the best of it. We had all the time in the world. Golf courses were open in Nevada. I didn’t have to rush and cram for a test. I’m proud of the work I was able to do.”

Her steady play earned her her fourth title on a day when only five players finished under par in rapidly changing conditions.



England’s Jodi Ewart Shadoff dropped four shots in three holes as her challenge for the Championship petered out.

Shadoff was on five-under for the tournament through 12 holes on the final day in Ohio but dropped shots on the 13th and 14th and double bogeyed the 15th.


The 32-year-old picked up a shot on the last for a round of 75 to go two under for the tournament, five shots behind Kang.

Scotland’s Gemma Dryburgh was in a five-strong group tied for sixth on even par after mixing three birdies and two bogeys on her final round.
