Korea and Japan qualify for Championship Finals

Georgia Hall and Catriona Matthew

The Korean Ladies Professional Golf Association team won all four of their matches on day two of The Queens presented by Kowa, a unique tournament between four of the world’s leading women’s golf tours, to earn their place in the Championship Final with the defending champions from the LPGA of Japan.
With each match victory worth two points, the KLPGA team earned eight points in the day-two four-balls at Miyoshi Country Club in Nagoya for a total of 12 points, one more than their nearest rivals.

LET Captain Trish Johnson said she was ‘gutted’ as her team fell just short of qualifying for the Championship Final.

 Her star performers were Britons Catriona Matthew and Georgia Hall, who defeated Australians Katherine Kirk and Lauren Hibbert by 6 and 4 in the top match, Matthew having also won her foursomes match with Nanna Koerstz Madsen on Friday.
