South Korean golfer Ji Eun-hee stormed into the LPGA Match-Play semifinals round after thrashing Madelene Sagstrom 7&6, while the remaining quarterfinals extended to extra holes.
“My putting works really well today,” said Ji, the 2009 US Women’s Open champion. “Just pretty confident out there.”
Ji Eun-hee said she was unaware of herself until her caddie told her that shwas finishing up the 12th hole at Shadow Creek in Las Vegas, Nevada.
She took the early lead to get the command to herself. Ji and Solheim leveled the holes at seventh and eighth, but Ji won the final three holes to claim the semifinal spot.
It was not a very stressful ending to her morning match with compatriot Choi Hye-jin in the round of 16. Following a tie on the 15th hole, Ji won the 16th and 17th holes for a 2&1 victory that advanced her to the last eight.
It cut Ji’s day in the desert in half, and she’ll play Allison Lee of the United States in the semi-finals on Sunday for a spot in the Sunday afternoon final.
