Korean-American Kang wins Women’s Amateur

BARRINGTON, Rhode Island - Danielle Kang became the first player in 15 years to successfully defend the U.S. Women’s Amateur title, beating Thailand’s Moriya Jutanugarn 6 and 5 on Sunday at Rhode Island Country Club.

Kang, 18, had a 4-up lead after 18 holes and finished off Jutanugarn with a par on the par-4 13th.

“I feel great,” said Kang, who had 11 birdies and one bogey in 31 holes. “I played the best round I've played at a major championship. I played well last year, but not this well.”

Kang won last year at Charlotte Country Club in North Carolina.
