SAMAMMISH, Wash. — Amy Yang built a huge lead and survived a couple of late mistakes to win her long-awaited first major title, a three-shot victory in the KMPG Women's PGA Championship. Yang closed with an even-par 72 at Sahalee to finish at 7-under 281. She was nearly flawless for the first 15 holes and reached 10 under for the tournament for a seven-shot lead before running into a little bit of trouble. But none of her pursuers was able to mount a significant charge. At age 34, Yang is the oldest major winner on the LPGA Tour since Angela Stanford won the 2018 Evian Championship at age 40.
