So Yeon Ryu is on top of the World

The Koreans were on a Mission

So Yeon Ryu came from a stroke behind fellow South Korean Inbee Park to capture her first World Ladies Championship title at Mission Hills Haikou in Hainan, China.

With rounds of 72, 73, 65 and 69 on the par-73 Blackstone Course, the world No.8 from Seoul ended on 13 under par, a stroke ahead of the overnight leader.

World No.2 Park, the 2014 champion, had tied or held the outright lead after each of the first three rounds and began a hot and sunny final day with a one stroke advantage. That was extended to two when Ryu three putted on the first green and then three when Ryu double bogeyed the par-four seventh hole.

Undeterred, the 24-year-old quickly made three birdies in four holes from the ninth and was the outright leader after 12.

Park birdied the 16th to regain a share of the lead, before Ryu again edged ahead with a birdie on 17. Both faced similar birdie putts on the par-five 18th, but could not convert them and Ryu tapped in a two feet par putt for the win.

“I missed quite a few birdie putts but Inbee wasn’t able to make a lot and the pressure was a little less, which was helpful,” said Ryu.
