There have been eight sister acts in the 68-year-history of the LPGA. The Jutanugarn’s become just the second set of siblings to have both girls win LPGA Tour titles after Annika and Charlotta Sorenstam. Moriya won the LA Open by two shots over Inbee Park and Jin Young Ko. It was Moriya’s 156th career start on the LPGA Tour. 62 - MULLINAX GOES LOW IN TEXAS American Trey Mullinax produced an incredible 10-under 62 in the third round of the Valero Texas Open. It put him in the record books for the lowest tournament round since the event moved to TPC San Antonio in 2010. Mullinax created history by setting another record. He shot 29 on the back nine for a new nine-hole mark including two eagles, four birdies and a bogey. 13 - UNLUCKY GARCIA Reigning Masters champion Sergio Garcia approached the 15th hole at Augusta National in the first round at two over for the round. When he completed the hole, the Spaniard’s score swelled to 10-over par. Garcia smoked a 290-metre drive at the par-5. He then proceeded to drop five consecutive shots in to the water guarding the front of the green. Garcia signed for a score of 13 to tie for the highest hole score in Masters history, and the highest score on the 15th. 5- LEVY BREAKS INTO WORLD TOP 50 Frenchman Alexander Levy won his fifth European Tour title at the Trophee Hassan II. Levy’s one-shot victory in Morocco over Spain’s Alvaro Quiros comes in his 138th appearance on the European Tour. The 27-year-old is projected to rise to world No. 48 from 66th.
