Joh routs Park, advances to final of LPGA eTour Live
Tiffany Joh advanced to the championship match of the LPGA eTour Live virtual tournament with a convincing 4-up victory over Jane Park on Friday.
Joh will square off in the final on Wednesday against Jessica Korda, who punched her ticket with a 1-up victory over Angel Yin earlier in the week.
As for Joh and Park, the two best friends enjoyed back-and-forth banter before the competition started.
“Jane, if you make anything higher than a bogey, then I get to name your child,” said Joh, who was one of the few people who knew that Park was pregnant prior to the latter’s announcement last week.
Park was quick with a response.
“And if I don’t, you have to change a diaper anytime I say,” she said.
Joh didn’t have much difficulty dispatching her friend, however.
Joh benefited from a strong shot off the opening tee, eventually leading to Park conceding the first hole.
The second hole saw the same end result, as Park conceded the hole after a putt rimmed out.
Joh ended the match in 20 minutes, sinking a birdie on the sixth hole.
The event is keeping LPGA players and fans engaged during the tour’s shutdown caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
The matches are streaming live on the WGT Twitch, YouTube and Facebook accounts, LPGA’s Twitter, Facebook, YouTube accounts and LPGA.com, and Discovery’s GOLFTV Twitter and Facebook accounts, and is available via video on demand on Golf Channel’s YouTube account and GolfChannel.com.
