28-May-2022

2022 Bank of Hope LPGA Match-Play, Hosted by Shadow Creek, Las Vegas:  25-29 May 


Day Two: Brittany Altomare wins against Minjee Lee, Jenny Shin wins over Hannah Green 

From LPGA Communications:

Las Vegas resident Jenny Shin may not get to practice much at Shadow Creek, but her play at the Bank of Hope LPGA Match-Play presented by MGM Rewards isn’t showing it. Shin has defeated two major champions thus far on days one and two of group play. Wednesday saw her beat 2020 AIG Women’s Open winner Sophia Popov, 2 and 1.

On Thursday, she doubled down, defeating 2019 KPMG Women’s PGA Championship winner Hannah Green, 5 and 3.

Green and Shin carded matching pars on the first three holes and Shin then went 2 up with a birdie on the fourth and a par on the fifth. She won again with a bogey on No. 8 that got her 3 up with 10 to play, and after Green eagled No. 9 to win her only hole of the day, Shin won holes 10 and 11, eventually closing out the match with a par on the 15th.  Read more

American Brittany Altomare notched a huge upset on Thursday at the Bank of Hope LPGA Match-Play presented by MGM Rewards, coming back from a three-hole deficit to capture a 2-and-1 victory over top-seeded Minjee Lee.

Lee got out to a quick lead, moving 1 up through two holes and carrying a 3-up lead to No. 8. From there, Altomare chipped away at Lee’s lead, winning holes 8-9 to pull within one. Altomare tied the match with a par at No. 12 and added wins at 13 and 14 to go 2 up, a lead she held until the end.  Read more

IRELAND’S STEPHANIE MEADOW finished in a tie for the second day in succession in round-robin play at the LPGA Match-Play at Shadow Creek in Las Vegas.

Meadow looked set to defeat Megan Khang but could not hold on to her two-shot lead which she had established by the 13th.

Instead the American rallied to tie the match with a birdie on 18.  Read more

From The Golf News Net:

The 2022 Bank of Hope LPGA Match Play format is unique in golf because it's not only the rare match-play event in professional golf, but it's an individual match-play event with a round-robin group component designed to help preserve the best players in the tournament from being eliminated in a potential fluke loss in the first three days of the event.

The Bank of Hope LPGA Match Play format is similar to that of the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play, with a 64-player event beginning with 16 groups of round-robin play leading to 16 group winners who advance into a single-elimination, bracket-style tournament to determine a winner.  Read more
