MEDIHEAL Championship 2021 R4

“I was definitely nervous, so my mindset was just going in thinking one shot at a time, one hole at a time, and see what happens, and just trying to enjoy the day because it was my first time in the final group. I thought it was great for experience no matter what happened. It just turned out I had a great day on the course and got the trophy.

“It’s a huge honor to be a winner as a rookie, and especially first one from Finland. That’s a really big honor.”

Castren started her round two strokes behind leader Min Lee and birdied her first three holes before firing an eagle at the par-5 5th. She made the turn in 30 after another birdie at the 9th then made one more at the 18th.

“It’s been a dream of mine to win since I was a little girl, and to see it happen and just to win, it’s such an amazing feeling.” said Castren. “There is nothing that compares to it. One of my thoughts was, `Well, I don’t have to go to Q-School this fall.'”

Lee fired four birdies and a bogey at the par-3 17th to close with a 69 and finished second at 12-under.

“I think I’m playing good today,” said Lee. “Obviously, she played much better on the front, so I’m not going to punish myself because it was a great week.”

Hannah Green (66) and So Yeon Ryu (67) tied for third place at 8-under.

Celine Boutier set the 18-hole tournament scoring record with a 64, hitting 15 greens in regulations on Sunday.

“I feel like the first couple of hole started kind of slow, but they’re also tough holes. At the same time, I was also happy to get away with a few pars to start off the round. The eagle definitely got me a little bit of momentum.”

Boutier tied for fifth place at 7-under alongside Jenny Shin, Jenny Coleman and Danielle Kang.
