Maiden major for Shibuno
Hinako Shibuno, of Japan, finished with a birdie to win the Women’s British Open by one shot over Lizette Salas as she wrapped up a stunning major championship debut yesterday. The 20-year-old Shibuno, a rookie on the Japan LPGA Tour who was making her LPGA Tour debut, birdied five of the final nine holes in a four-under 68 and 18-under 270 overall. American Salas, who started the day tied for fourth, quickly played herself into contention with three birdies in the first four holes, and she added five more in a sevenunder 65 at Woburn Golf Club.
