(Reuters) -Kim Hyo-joo won the HSBC Women’s World Championship at the Sentosa Golf Club in Singapore on Sunday when Australian Hannah Green conquered the final two holes to claim the South Korean win at the $ 1.6 million tournament win.
Kim’s eight-under-par final round of 64 earned her the title with a four-round score of 17 under par, despite Green’s failure to identify the last two loopholes in the regulation, the 25-year-old’s eventual first Brought in space.
Green, who finished third in the finals, held out with two birdies on the top nine before hitting an eagle on the 14th that put her on a par with Kim.
A 15-foot putt on the 16th secured another birdie that took the 2019 PGA Women’s Championship winner to the top, only falling back into a duel with Kim on the third putt with Kim.
It was worse for the Australian to get on the last hole when, since she needed a par to enter a two-hole playoff, she sent her approach from the trailing edge of the green.
Her first attempt raced well over the hole and after two attempts to sink the ball from there, Green slipped back to second place to give Kim her first LPGA Tour title in five years.
Overnight leader Lin Xiyu finished in third place after initially struggling to keep up with the waves at the top of the leaderboard.
In a one-under-par round of 71, she reached a 15-under-par with Patty Tavatanakit from Thailand and Inbee Park.
Tavatanakit, who won ANA Inspirational in April and made professional appearances in the tournament for the first time in her rookie season, achieved a seven-under-par round of 65.
