Former world No. 1 Shin Ji-Yai won the rain-delayed Women’s British Open with a 9-shot cushion on Sunday (GMT), while Park In-bee trailed to give Korea a 1-2 finish in the prestigious tournament.
Shin, who has seen her ranking on the U.S. LPGA Tour slip to No. 10 after topping the table two years ago, carried a 3-stroke lead into the final round of the season's final major.
The 10-time LPGA Tour winner, now aged 24, remained composed despite the blustery conditions at Royal Liverpool to extend her lead by shooting a final-round 73 for her second victory in seven days.
Last week Shin, who had surgery on her wrist over the summer, beat American Paula Creamer in a bruising playoff battle to claim the Kingsmill Championship with a stellar performance that ended her two-year title drought.
