Gaby Lopez Wins at Blue Bay Maiden LPGA Tour Title on Her Birthday

HAINAN, China Mexican golf player Gaby Lopez got on Saturday a timely birthday present as she won the Blue Bay tournament held in the Chinese island of Hainan, her maiden LPGA Tour triumph.

Heading into the fourth and final round of the tournament, she got rewarded on her 25th birthday as she was able to keep her one-stroke lead which she got thanks to a hole-in-one in the third round over Ariya Jutanugarn of Thailand, who had to settle for the second place.

During the fourth round, the Mexican player struggled, especially in the last few holes, striking four birdies and five bogeys, while Jutanugarn undermined her bid with three birdies in the last seven holes, thus failing to recover from a shaky start.

Lopez became only the second Mexican to win a LPGA Tour title, following the 36-year-old Lorena Ochoa Reyes, widely regarded as the best Mexican golfer of all time.
