Amy Yang

Amy Yang AIG Women

Twice a runner-up in the US Women's Open, losing by four to Na Yeon Choi in 2012 and then by just one to another of her compatriots, Chun In-gee, three years later. On the second of those occasions she led by three after the second and third rounds, but Chun, making her debut in the championship and playing on invitation because she had yet to hold an LPGA Tour card, closed with a 66 to snatch the title away from her. An eagle on the 16th and birdie on the 17th re-ignited Yang’s hopes, but she bogeyed the last.

Her career contains no fewer than 19 top-10 finishes in majors, including a fourth and a fifth at the AIG Women’s Open, and she has won four LPGA titles – three of them in Thailand – and three Ladies European Tour events, the first of them as an amateur in 2006.
