In Michigan, the victory did not escape the American doublet Jennifer Kupcho / Lizette Salas author of a second card of 61 in 4 balls on Sunday. Hosts of the tournament the French Pauline Roussin-Bouchard and her Dutch partner Dewi Weber are content with 6th place after a last day completed in 63.
Alone at the top of the tournament after two rounds and an exceptional hole-in-one of Pauline Roussin-Bouchardthe Frenchwoman and her partner from the Netherlands Dewi Weber can potentially no illusions after a badly negotiated 3rd round on Friday.
Only a slowdown of the new leaders Kupcho/Salas would open the doors to their first success on the LPGA.
A scenario that did not happen since the two Solheim Cup players perfectly controlled their main rivals with a second card of 61 in the 4-ball formula of the last round. 4 birdies on the way out, 5 on the return allowed them to win with 5 strokes ahead of the exotic pair made up of Finland’s Matilda Castren and Malaysia’s Kelly Tan.
It’s Jennifer Kupcho’s third win of the season and Lizette Salas’ first title since 2014!
The Fassi / Lewis feat
The card of the day and the tournament is to the credit of the Mexican Maria Fassi associated with the American two-time major winner Stacy Lewis. 11 birdies and a score of 59 gave them 3rd place on the podium.
A position occupied by the Franco-Dutch duo Roussin-Bouchard / Weber before the last round, forced to settle for 6th place after a last day concluded with a card of 63 and a last birdie from the two players at 18. 3 had cost them so much the day before.
Good last lap for Delacour and Herbin
Note the excellent 61 of the other two tricolors engaged in this double-handed event. Perrine Delacour and her Chinese partner Xiyu Lin climbed into the top 15 while Céline Herbin and Swiss player Morgane Metraux climbed to 28th place.
