이정은, US여자오픈서 우승…상금 역대 `최다` 10번째 우승

100만 달러의 주인공 돼

LPGA 최고의 대회 쾌거

단독 6위로 4라운드 출발

최종합계 6언더파 278타 기록

공동 2위 유소연 에인절 인(미국), 렉시 톰프슨(미국)

    `핫식스` 이정은(23)이 미국여자프로골프(LPGA) 투어 데뷔 첫 우승을 메이저대회인 US여자오픈에서 달성했다. 

이정은은 2일(현지시간) 미국 사우스캐롤라이나주 찰스턴의 컨트리클럽 오브 찰스턴(파71·6천535야드)에서 열린 제74회 US여자오픈(총상금 550만 달러) 최종 4라운드에서 버디 4개와 보기 3개를 묶어 1언더파 70타를 쳤다. 

단독 6위로 4라운드를 출발한 이정은은 최종합계 6언더파 278타를 기록하며 공동 2위 유소연(29), 에인절 인(미국), 렉시 톰프슨(미국)을 2타 차로 따돌리고 우승컵을 들어올렸다. 

올해 LPGA 투어에 데뷔한 이정은이 9번째 출전한 경기에서 거둔 첫 우승이다.

데뷔 첫 우승을 메이저대회에서 달성해 더욱 뜻깊다. 이정은은 우승 상금 100만 달러(약 11억 9000만원)이다. 

US여자오픈은 올해부터 우승 상금을 역대 최다인 100만 달러로 인상했고, 이정은이 이 상금의 첫 주인이 됐다. 

이정은은 우승 트로피와 함께 US여자오픈 10년간 출전권도 획득했다. 

선두로 경기를 마친 이정은은 1타 차 단독 2위 부티에의 마지막 18번 홀 결과를 퍼팅 연습을 하며 차분히 기다렸다. 

그러나 마지막까지 추격 하던 셀린 부티에(프랑스)는 18번 홀에서 더블보기로 무너지면서 이정은의 우승이 확정됐다.

Jeongeun Lee6 survived a late wobble to win the US Women’s Open at the Country Club of Charleston.

The South Korean, who began the day two shots behind joint overnight leaders Celine Boutier and Yu Liu, carded a final-round 70 to win by one.

Lee finished bogey-par-bogey but Boutier was unable to get the birdie on the last she needed to take proceedings to a play-off. It meant Lee6, clinched her first win on the LPGA Tour.

Jeongeun Lee6, the 2019 US Open champion, speaks! “I felt pretty nervous on 16, 17 and 18. I know I made two bogeys but I tried the best I could. All my shots were pretty good. I was calm because I knew I could play well. Throughout the year I couldn’t imagine coming this far. I feel proud and I worked so hard.” That was a genuinely sweet interview, because towards the end, Lee6 broke down in tears of happiness ... and that set her translator off too! “I’m sorry,” she paused, “I’m just really proud of her!” That’s a lovely moment, one sure to become a part of this grand old tournament’s rich legend.

Jeongeun Lee6 was certainly No1 today. Having stepped on the gas after the turn to take the lead, the young South Korean never gave it up, despite that late wobble. That’s thanks to the cushion she’d built up by playing some sensational golf. She’s the deserved victor. And so to the prize-giving ceremony. First up, Gina Kim of Chapel Hill, North Carolina, who is awarded with the medal for low amateur. Then the gold winner’s medal is hung around Lee6’s neck, and she’s handed the famous old pot!

Boutier chips up gamely from the swale down the side of 18. She’s left with a four foot bogey putt ... and it lips out. A double bogey to start, and another to finish. Her flat stick has really let her down today. A miserable 75, and she looks so deflated. Poor Boutier, who will see that missed putt on 16 when she closes her eyes tonight. She drops out of second into a tie for fifth. Her playing partner and former Duke team-mate Liu ends with a 75 as well, both of the third-round leaders having started abysmally, unable to claw it back.
