In addition to a winner's check of $300,000, the 22-year-old became the fifth player to make the Wegmans LPGA her first LPGA Tour victory, and also became the seventh player in the history of the event to win at Locust Hill Country Club in her first attempt.

“I'm a fly in the sky. I cannot describe what I feel right now,” Ji said via translator. “Last year, Suzann beat me (at the Hana Bank â–ª KOLON Championship) and today I beat Suzann. I was just trying to put pressure on her, and I feel comfortable coming from behind rather than leading the tournament. It's indescribable.”
