Amy Yang, the South Korean golfer, finally clinched her first major victory at the Women's PGA Championship after 75 attempts, SSP reported. Despite holding a seven-shot lead with only three holes to play, Yang faced a late scare, bogeying and double bogeying the subsequent holes. However, she managed to regain her composure and finished with a par on the final hole to secure a three-stroke victory over Ko Jin-young and Lilia Vu, finishing at seven-under-par overall.

For Yang, the win has been a long time coming, as she has consistently performed well in majors throughout her career. Before this victory, she had achieved five wins on the LPGA Tour and had finished in the top 10 in 21 of her 74 previous major starts, including two runner-up finishes at the US Women's Open. Despite this success, the elusive major title had always evaded her grasp.

The win not only carries immense personal significance but also comes with a handsome reward—$1.56 million in prize money.
