Park Sung-hyun completed a wire-to-wire victory at the Hyundai China Ladies Open yesterday, marking the 10th consecutive year that a Korean has won the national championship.

The 22-year-old Seoul native closed with a final-round 67 over the Mission Hills Haikou Blackstone course on Hainan Island for a score of 17-under-par 199, two strokes ahead of defending champion Kim Hyo-joo.

Park's fourth win of the year earned her US$110,000. Jang Su-yeon (68) finished third, five shots off the pace, while world No. 9 Chun In-gee, the highest ranked player in the field, was a shot further back after a 68. Shi Yuting was the top Chinese player as the rookie pro closed with a 70 to finish 12 strokes off the lead in equal 13th in the tournament that marked the final event of the 2015 China LPGA Tour season and the first event of the 2016 LPGA of Korea Tour.
