“Proof of never giving up”

Linnea Ström played big and took home her first LPGA Tour event on Sunday, after finishing the final round in New Jersey at an incredible eleven under par.
The 27-year-old climbed from 52nd place to victory – a historic comeback.
– Honestly, I really didn’t expect this, says Ström after the crash.

The round of 60, with an eagle on the ninth hole and a total of nine birdies, left Linnea Strom tops with a total of 199 strokes, 14 under par.

It is not only the competition’s lowest round ever.

Ström’s huge success

The 27-year-old climbed from 52nd to victory, which is by far the biggest climb on the LPGA Tour since 1984.
– I think I just tried to do as well as I could and I honestly didn’t think I was playing to win, says Ström afterwards.

The 60 strokes, eleven under par, is also the lowest score in a deciding round for a winner in LPGA Tour history. Annika Sörenstam had the best round ever on the tour, 59 strokes, in 2001.
– This is proof that you should never give up. Just go out and give it your all, says Ström.

Ström’s victory and super round comes after she missed the cut in five of her last six competitions.
– I have worked very hard for this. Completely surreal that it is finally happening, she continues.

The American Megan Khangwho finished tied for second, was humbled by Ström’s big game.
– Hats off to her, says Khang and continues:
– It’s a little hard to get upset about losing to a -11.
