Danielle Kang readily admits she, and her golf game, remain a constant work in progress. She spent much of the offseason finding a way to be "comfortable being uncomfortable." It seems to be working.
On a difficult championship test at Lake Nona Golf and Country Club, Kang ran off five birdies in a seven-hole stretch in the middle of her round, posted the low score Sunday at 4-under 68 and sprinted away to a three-shot victory at the season-opening Hilton Grand Vacations Tournament of Champions.
"My mental game was really good," said Kang, who was winless in 2021 after having won in each of her previous four LPGA seasons. "I had a really good attitude all day today and yesterday. I know I left some putts out there, but I never let it get to me, and I kept having to give myself birdie chances as much as possible."
