Hsu birdied the 16th and parred the final two holes to close with a 68 and a 13-under, 271 total.

“I definitely never expected this. Like I said earlier this week, I was so tired. I didn’t expect much. And definitely when I finished first round solo lead, I definitely thought about that, but the second round just knock me down a little bit because I had a 1-over par.”

“I think this is the happiest thing ever, how my caddie cried and somehow I just cried so hard the last hole. But I feel happy and just happy,” she added.

This first victory for Hsu is also the first for Taiwan since Yani Tseng won the 2012 Kia Classic.

“I don’t know like what this win means for [Taiwan], but I really hope that I can give them some positive thought and a good energy to believe something,” said Hsu who reported on the COVID-19 situation in her native country. “You can always believe something and it will actually happen. I know people are against to virus right now, sports are shutdown, but there is something that the player or the people or the Taiwanese playing a different sport out, different country, they can still cheer for.”

Jutanugarn closed with a 70 to finish second two shots behind Hsu but she was proud of her performance this week.

“I mean, it’s still a good week. I like to play in the last group on Sunday—that’s always a good week. Of course, it’s not finish I wanted to, but, you know, I still going to take a lot of good things from here.”

Jessica Korda was also proud of herself for climbing the leaderboard the past couple of rounds.

“I’m proud of myself for keeping up out there. Kyle [my caddie] and I have been doing a lot of good work. This week was a little bit of guessing, especially we had a lot of wedges in and the ground is firm and numbers weren’t the same. We are very, very tired. There was a lot of thinking going into this whole week. I’m excited for the U.S. Open.”
