Playing tournaments every week for 3–4 days can be a really hectic deal for a golf pro. Each tournament not only includes the 4 days of the event but also the beforehand practice sessions and Pro-AM rounds as well. In the fair lineup of the events, it can get really tiring for the golfers, and they might end up looking forward to the little break they get in between the weeks.

The final round of the Kroger Queen City Championship was as dramatic as it could get. At the end of the final round, both Charley Hull and Minjee Lee tied for the first position with 16 under 272 on the board, and it called for a good old-fashioned playoff between the two.

On the par-four 18th hole, Lee’s approach shot landed her three feet from the cup, and henceforth, she scored a birdie. On the contrary, Hull missed her birdie putt and made par in the playoff. As a result, the Australian golfer won for the first time since the 2022 US Women’s Open.
