Lee Jung-Min wins the World Ladies Championship in China


Powered by National Club Golfer


World No. 35 Lee Jung-Min topped a Korean-packed leaderboard with a closing 66 for her eighth career title.

She dropped two shots in the last three holes but eight earlier birdies provided enough of a cushion to stay ahead of Lee Seung-Hyun, Kim Bo-Kyung and Ji Han Sol in China.

Ji needed to birdie the difficult 18th to tie but, having almost holed her approach, missed from 12 feet.

There was double cause for celebration as Lee also won the team competition with partner Ko Jin-Young. An aggregate score of 12-under put the South Korean pair 15 strokes ahead of the French duo Gwladys Nocera and Céline Herbin.

This was the first edition of the World Ladies Championship to be sanctioned by the Korean LPGA Tour as well as the Ladies European Tour and China LPGA and resulted in nine KLPGA players in the top 12 places in total.

What Lee said: “I was very surprised to win because I didn’t feel that I played my best and I wasn’t in the leading group. My main goal this year is to get my best ever score on the KLPGA Tour.”
