Lilia Vu started the year with her first win on the Tour by taking home the Honda LPGA Thailand in February. Then, in April, she claimed her first major at the Chevron Championship and earned massive recognition. But like many other athletes, Lilia Vu also couldn’t avoid the physical strain that comes with being a player.

While playing in the Mizuho Americas Open, she was stopped dead in her tracks by a “back injury scare”. After that, she stepped away from the competitions for three weeks. At Finca, Cortesin Vu is now wearing pink tape on her hands, which are worn by patients in hospitals.
