The world’s No. 1 player was sitting pretty, looking very much like a player ready to close the deal in Singapore.
After a third round 66, Ariya Jutanugarn looked ready to step into the winner’s circle on Sunday.
That didn’t happen.
Jutanugarn struggled mightily on her way to a final round 75 that opened the door for the world’s No. 2 and Sung Hyun Park stepped through it.
Park shot a sensational 64, the day’s best effort at the Sentosa Golf Club. Her winning total was 15-under, two shots clear of runnerup Minjee Lee.
Park talked about how inspired she was after meeting Tiger Woods last month at a TaylorMade commercial shoot.
“If Tiger is watching this interview, then I would want to say that because we met, you gave me such a good energy, that made me win this tournament,” Park said after collecting her sixth LPGA Tour win.
American Amy Olson had her best finish of the season. After closing with 70, she got to 10-under par and tied for fifth.
Nelly Korda had another good week and finished solo 10th at six-under par.
Lexi Thompson’s final round 66 got her back to even par for the tournament and earned her a tie for 26th.
