While South Korea’s In Gee Chun stole the show at the 2015 LPGA U.S. Open in Lancaster, Pennsylvania this past week with a final round of 66 to capture her fifth tournament victory of the season, New Jersey native Marina Alex made waves early on and finished in a six-way tie for 20th place.
Alex finished at 2-over par with a combined score of 282 over the tournament’s four days from July 9-12. Her best round came on Thursday, where she shot 4-under, 66, with five birdies. This early jolt gave Alex a momentary lead midway through the first day.
Alex’s 20th place finish marks her second best result of the 2015 season. It came two weeks after her best finish — and her second career top-10 finish — when she placed in a tie for ninth in June’s Walmart NW Arkansas Championship Presented By P&G.
Following the LPGA U.S. Open, Alex is now ranked 120th in the Rolex Rankings and 77th in this season’s CME Rankings.
