South Korea's Shin Jiyai Wins Women's British Open

Shin Jiya at Royal Liverpool Golf Club, Hoylake.

The 2012 event was won in spectacular fashion by Shin.  I didn't brave the rain and wind at Hoylake today.  Had to watch it on TV from home in Coventry. Since I took this photograph on Wednesday's practice day, thought it good to include it here.

The final results were as follows:

  • -9: J Shin (Kor) 
  • Par: I Park (Kor)
  • +1: P Creamer (US)
  • +2: M Miyazatyo (Jpn)
  • Selected others: +3: K Webb (Aus); +7: C Matthew (Sco); +8 C Kerr (US), M Wie (US).

    That is so cool you got to experience so much in person! But wise to enjoy some of from the dry comfort of home. Sounds like it's been great fun :)

    You didn't go out in the rain to watch a golf game! Well I wouldn't either! :D

    Paul, I am a dedicated supporter but there is a limit, especially when it is on TV :).

    Yes, Lulu, I was REALLY happy to find myself at home after experiencing 'the weather' earlier in the week at Hoylake.

    Next major golfing event is the Ryder Cup in Chicago. Looking forward to seeing that on TV too.
