    Park In-bee won the HSBC Women's Champions in Singapore on Sunday. She made nine birdies and one bogey in her final round at Sentosa Golf Club, carding a 19-under 269 overall.

    Second-placed Ariya Jutanugarn of Thailand finished on 18-under, followed by Park Sung-hyun with 16-under. Jang Ha-na, Michelle Wie and Brooke Henderson tied for fourth.

    Park's 18th LPGA Tour title came in her second event of the season. Her first tournament this year was the Honda LPGA Thailand. The win ended a 16-month LPGA victory drought for Park, whose previous win was at the Lorena Ochoa Invitational in November 2015.

    The victory sends a message and puts all rivals on notice that Park, who took a six-month break after the Rio Olympics, is still on top of her game.

    Meanwhile, Park Sung-hyun, who made her LPGA debut at the event, proved that she is a force to be reckoned with.
