Yuka Saso finished her stint, placing 4th place in the 2021 LPGA Cognizant Founders Cup at the Mountain Ridge Country Club in West Caldwell, New Jersey.
Saso ended eight strokes ahead of Korean Jin Young Ko, who dominated from start to finish at 266.
She proved that she is not a two-time LPGA of Japan champion for nothing as she recovered from an early double-bogey to finish with a one-under 70, catching Korean Jeongeun Lee6 at No. 4 overall at 10-under 274.
And even in the rain at Mountain Ridge, Saso got a double on the par-4 No. 6 but recovered with four birdies and a bogey the rest of the way to finish at 10-under par after previous rounds of 67-70-67.
Moreover, Saso with such feat finished her journey that placed her in 14th place in the Race to CME Globe rankings
The Fil-Japanese will receive a share in the $3-million and will bag Php 7-million.
