(Westlake, LA) – The final round of the Coushatta Tribe of Louisiana Open was similar to round three except the roles were flipped. In round three Amanda Kim (Missouri) got off to a quick start and grabbed a share of the lead early. In the final round, Miranda Wang (China) got off to a quick start and grabbed a share of the lead early, but she did not let go.
Wang would birdie her second hole of the day to grab a share of the lead with Kim. Two holes later, Kim would go on to bogey, giving Wang the solo lead through 5 holes played. Wang would add another birdie on the 9th hole to hold a two-shot lead heading into the back over Kim. The battle was not over, Wang would make her first mistake of the day on the 12th, getting Kim within one shot. Kim, a former champion on the WAPT, took advantage of the bogey a few holes later on the 16th and would tie the lead at -7. Heading into 17 the players were tied at the top. The par-5 was reachable in two shots today, and both players hit good second shots into the green. Kim would come up just short, leaving her a straightforward chip, and Wang barely carried the greenside bunker, leaving herself a putt from the fringe for eagle.
A misstep from Kim came on her third shot on the par-5. The chip ran too far past and the putt came up short. Kim would now have a 5-footer for par, which she would just miss. Wang would two-putt from the fringe and a two-shot swing occurred, leaving Wang in a very comfortable position heading into 18. The 18th hole was less dramatic than the 17th with Wang making a bogey and Kim making a par. With the bogey Miranda Kim would become the 2022 Coushatta Tribe of Louisiana Open Champion!
The Women’s All-Pro Tour would like to thank the National Golf Club of Louisiana and their staff for all of their hard work throughout the week through very difficult conditions. A special thank you to Tournament Director Aaron Ortego, Head Professional Dave Kaspar, Volunteer Chair Robert Robertson, Housing Coordinator Lois Manena, Superintendent Chance Walker, and all of the volunteers who helped make this tournament possible. The WAPT will take a two-week break before heading to Abilene, TX for the Mackie Construction Pro Golf Classic at Abilene Country Club, April 5-8.
