South Korean Ji-Yai Shin won the ADT Championship at Trump International today. Ji-Yai turned pro at the end of 2005 and played in Asia, where she won the Hong Kong Open. Returning to the KLPGA as a rookie in 2006, she started her year with a pair of third place finishes in her first two events. Then she surprised everyone by trumping a top field, including American LPGA star Cristie Kerr, to win the Korean Women's Open, the biggest event on the KLPGA schedule all year. She kept up her torrid pace by finishing second at the next event. As of that point, she had seized control of the league, first in birdies, money earned and rounds under par. Shin went on to win numerous competitions eventually becaming the first woman in more than 20 years to win an LPGA Major without being a member of the LPGA tour this year. This win gained her membership on the LPGA and LET tours. Shin ended up with a 2-under-par 70 today to claim the ADT Championship $1 million first prize.
