Twenty-two year old tour rookie Ryu So-yeon claimed her first LPGA title on Monday, shooting a career low nine-under 62 in the final round to edge American Angela Stanford by six shots.
At the Jamie Farr Toledo Classic, Ryu entered the third day tied for the lead with three fellow Koreans, Shin Ji-yai, Seo Hee-kyung and Kim In-kyung.
Ryu birdied two of her first five holes and then strung together six straight birdies from holes 9-through-14 to take an unassailable lead entering the final stretch.
Park In-bee and Choi Chella tied for third place and Kim In-kyung came fifth.
