Keeping Score

China’s Ruixin Liu shows she still knows how to win

After failing to keep her LPGA card last year, Symetra Tour’s 2018 player of the year returns to developmental tour and wins FireKeepers Casino Hotel Championship

4: Number of victories on the Symetra Tour for China’s Ruixin Liu, who won the FireKeepers Casino Hotel Championship on Sunday in the developmental tour’s return to competition from the coronavirus shutdown. Liu birdied the par-4 18th hole at Battle Creek (Mich.) Country Club to shoot 1-under 71 for a 13-under 203 total and two-stroke victory over American Bailey Tardy (66). Liu, 21, won three times on the developmental tour in 2018 to earn the player-of-the-year honor and a promotion to the LPGA. However, she made only six cuts in 20 starts on the LPGA last season and had to return to the minor leagues (scores).
