HypoVereinsbank Ladies German Open, Yang Storms To First Pro Win In Germany
01 Jun 08

(Munich, Germany) - South Korea’s Amy Yang claimed the HypoVereinsbank Ladies German Open, presented by Audi, by four shots at Golfpark Gut Häusern, designed by Peter Harradine.


Yang, 18, began the final round with a five shot lead and shot a five-under 67 for a 21-under-par total on the drastically shortened course. Sweden’s Louise Stahle, the 2007 Ryder Cup Wales Rookie of the Year, finished in second on 17-under with Gwladys Nocera in third one stroke back. Spain’s Marta Prieto and France’s Anne-Lise Caudal shared fourth on 15-under-par.


The richly deserved victory was the first in Yang’s professional career, but her second on the Ladies European Tour.


Another teenager, American Michelle Wie, 18, came sixth on 14-under-par, which marked her first sub-par tournament total in 14 appearances since she tied for second at the 2006 Evian Masters in France.


Her final round of 67 was her best score in three tournaments this year. “I’m glad that I shot under par; it feels good,” said Wie, whose presence helped to attract almost 17,000 spectators to the remote course over the tournament week.
