Inbee Park Wins 2017 HSBC Women’s Champions

Inbee Park notched her 18th career LPGA tour victory  becoming the first two-time winner of the HSBC Women’s Champions (2015).  Park won by one stroke on Sunday after closing with a round of 8-under 64.

Park finished on 19-under 269 at the Sentosa Golf Club, one shot clear of her playing partner Ariya Jutanugarn, who was second after a 66.

Sung Hyun Park (68) was third, a further shot back, while overnight leader Michelle Wie dropped back into a tie for fourth after a 72.

Wie was two in front after making birdies on the second and third holes before her round unraveled when she four-putted for a double-bogey on the par-5 fifth.

With her victory, Inbee is projected to jump from No. 12 in the Rolex Women’s World Golf Rankings to No.9.
