    Chun In-gee won her first LPGA title in more than two years at the LPGA KEB Hana Bank Championship in Incheon on Sunday.

    Chun started the final fourth round tied for fourth place, two strokes behind the leader.

    She managed seven birdies and one bogey to card a 16-under 272 and claim the winner's trophy and prize money of US$300,000.

    Charley Hull of England came in second, three strokes behind Chun. World No. 1 Park Sung-hyun and No. 2 Ariya Jutanugarn of Thailand, Lee Min-jee and Danielle Kang tied for third place.

    It is Chun's third career LPGA title. Her previous win was at the Evian Championship in September 2016. Since then, she had struggled until recently, finishing runner-up six times. But she showed signs of a recovery at the UL International Crown in Incheon last week, leading the Korean women to the title by winning all four matches.
