    Ko Jin-young won the HSBC Women's World Championship in Singapore on Sunday, setting a couple of scoring records along the way.

    It was her 13th career victory on the LPGA Tour, having won six of the last 10 LPGA events.

    In the fourth and final round of the championship in Sentosa, Ko shot a 17-under-par to finish two strokes ahead of her compatriot Chun In-gee of Korea and Lee Min-jee of Australia.

    With Sunday's victory, Ko, who currently leads the Rolex Women's World Golf Rankings, set new records.

    Ko achieved the feat of posting sub-60 scores 15 times in a row, surpassing the previous record of 14 set by herself as well as Swedish golf legend Annika Sörenstam and fellow Korean golfer Ryu So-yeon.

    Ko also set a new LPGA record for the most consecutive rounds under par at 30, a streak that began at the Amundi Evian Championship in July last year, beating the previous record of 29 consecutive times held by Sörenstam and Lydia Ko of New Zealand.
