2020 Taiwan LPGA Tour |Taiwan Mobile Ladies Open 23 – 25 Dec Final-Round Recap

Chien Pei-Yun (錢珮芸) bagged her fifth professional victory at the fourth annual Taiwan Mobile Ladies Open. The LPGA Tour campaigner had two Symetra Tour triumphs and two TLPGA Heritage Tour titles (36-hole) under her belt. The win on Friday becomes her first official 54-hole tournament win on the TLPGA Tour, which is worth NT$540,000.

In this wire-to-wire victory saw the 30-year-old shoot three straight rounds in red numbers. She carded a final round 70 to complete on 10-under 206, beating fellow LPGA Tour member Hsu Wei-Ling (徐薇淩) by eight shots.

“I feel like every part of my game has finally come together,” Chien said, who is enjoying a breakthrough season, recording her second Symetra Tour win just two months ago at the Symetra Classic. “For the past ten years, at different stage of my career, it always felt like something in my skillset was not ready. And then when you thought you got it together physically, there could be something on the mind that was a hold-back.” Chien’s last TLPGA Tour win dated back to 2014, the year she closed as the tour’s Money Winner, when she captured the TLPGA & Tsai Hsing Heritage Tour.

Chien spend most of her 2020 season in the United States, making five cuts in eight outings this year on the LPGA Tour, and posting two top-10 finishes in five starts on the Symetra Tour. Finishing her last Symetra Tour event just last month, Chien traveled a long way back to pay a visit to golf legend Tu A-Yu in preparation for the season finale, which proved to be the right move. Chien will get her 2021 Symetra Tour season underway in February, hoping the results in the new year will be good enough to finally earn her a full LPGA card.

“I was pretty relaxed coming into today with the six-shot lead I had,” said Chien, who escaped a 2nd hole scare by saving par with a 10-footer just off of the green, and kept things well-measured from then on. She scored one birdie on the front nine, followed by a back-nine with two birdies and a lone bogey on the 13th hole to post a final-round 2-under.

For Hsu Wei-Ling, she knew her chances had gone from slim to virtually non-existent after she missed at least a couple of 5-footers for birdies on the front nine to fall one more stroke behind Chien. “If I would have taken those birdie opportunities, I’m sure it would put some extra pressure on Peiyun, and maybe I could have my last chances,” Hsu said. Hsu finished with a final-round 72. Her previous outing here at Tong Hwa ended in the eighth place.

“I usually played pretty well in the lead-up events. But with the virus messing up our schedule, the long breaks before the big tournaments made it really hard for me to carry the rhythm from where I left in the lead-ups,” said Hsu.

Cheng Ssu-Chia (程思嘉) used two birdies in the last three holes, carding a Friday 70, to complete her fourth top-3 finish this year. Tying with her in equal third place at 1-under 215 was Lee Chia-Pei (李佳霈).

Teen talent Wu Chia-Yen (吳佳晏), who made a record three victories in her rookie year, finished with a 74, slipping into a tie for fifth with Kuo Ai-Chen (郭艾榛) at even-par 216.

Chang Ya-Chun’s (張雅淳) steadiness in the wind helped her emerge as the low amateur. She carded 72-72-73 to sit in a tie for seventh on the leaderboard with Shih Cheng-Hsuan (石澄璇), Tsai Pei-Ying (蔡佩穎), and Huang Yu-Ping (黃郁評).

2018 winner Lee Min (李旻) and KLPGA Tour member Chen Yu-Ju (陳宇茹) wrapped it up on 2-over 218, sharing the 11th place.
