South Korea's Ko Jin-young secured her first LPGA Tour victory on Sunday, defeating world No.2 and compatriot Park Sung-hyun by two shots in the KEB Hana Bank Championship. Ko, who entered the final round with a two-shot lead, bogeyed two of her first three holes to drop two behind a fast-starting Park. But she came back with a barrage of birdies to fire a sizzling four-under-par 68.

Kob gained five shots in an eight-hole stretch from the fifth before posting a 19-under total of 269 on the par-72 Ocean Course at the SKY72 Golf & Resort in Incheon, South Korea.

Twice major champion and local favorite Chun In-gee finished third with a 69.
