What a strange turn of events on the last day of the ANA Inspiration, the first major for the LPGA, won by Honma Golf Team member So Yeon Ryu in a one hole playoff with Lexi Thompson, who had been given a 4 stroke penalty on the 12th hole, after a viewer had sent in an inquiry on Lexi not placing her ball back in the proper position on Saturday. Ryu and her caddie, mother and friends made a big splash in Poppie’s Pond.
