Golfer Park Gyeol finally claimed her first KLPGA Tour title on Sunday, four years after her debut.
Her victory at the SK Networks-Seoul Economic Daily Ladies Classic in Jeju came after six runner-up finishes on the Tour. Park carded a six-under 282, one stroke ahead of joint runners-up Lee Da-yeon and Bae Seon-woo.
Park was visibly emotional as she lifted her first winning trophy. "I always wondered whether this day would ever come -- and it finally has. I'm so happy," she said.
She earned prize money of W160 million (US$1 = W1,142).
