You’re made for this.’ I put a good stroke on it. I’m not going to lie, I was nervous,” Salas told media after her round. ”You know, I haven’t been in that position in a long time.

It just didn’t drop.” Hinako Shibuno impressed in her major championship debut.The 20-year-old Japanese golfer had never before played on the LPGA Tour, let alone a major, but she was able to hold off the rest of the field to claim the Women’s British Open championship at 18 under.
