Ha Na Jang had a great rookie year in 2015, but four times she came up short of breaking through for her first LPGA win, instead finishing runner-up, including at the Coates Golf Championship.

Jang, who made the first-ever par-4 hole-in-one in LPGA history at last week's season-opening Pure Silk Bahamas Classic, got that maiden win on Saturday. With a pair of birdies in the final three holes, Jang pulled away from a crowded leaderboard to win the Coates Golf Championship at Golden Ocala Golf Club in Ocala, Fla. Her 11-under total was good enough for a two-shot win over Brooke Henderson.

Lydia Ko, Sei Young Kim and In Gee Chun finished tied for third at 8-under 280.

As Jang made her winning birdie putt on the 18th hole, she celebrated with a Chi-Chi Rodriguez inspired move, turning her putter in what the LPGA described as a samurai sword, twisting it before tucking it underneath her arm.

Of course, the move made us think of this all-time great golf GIF.

However, we think Jang is going to become way more famous than that guy.

THAT WAS FUN, RIGHT?!
