Victorian, Su Oh, has produced her best finish of the 2021 LPGA Tour season when finishing 15th at the Meijer LPGA Classic in Grand Rapids in Michigan.

Oh, currently ranked 106th in the Rolex World Rankings for female golfers, struggled to a final round of even par 71 on the low scoring Blythefield Golf Club layout and finished a massive nine shots from the winner Nelly Korda but her performance will give a lot of confidence as the LPGA Tour season heads into the second half of the year.

Oh slipped from 4th overnight to her eventual share of 15th but with a best of 24th in her previous nine starts this year it has been a significant improvement.

Oh did start the year well in WPGA events in Australia, winning one and finishing runner-up in the other but she has struggled to regain that form in the US to date.

Katherine Kirk was 29th, Hannah Green and Gabi Ruffels 45th and New Zealand’s Lydia Ko 61st.

Korda, at 25 under par, won by two shots over Ireland’s Leona Maguire who is establishing herself as a force to be reckoned with on the LPGA Tour in just her second season.

The LPGA will now play one of the majors in the world of women’s golf, the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship in Georgia.
