I.K. shot a final round -7 under par 63, to post the winning score of -24 under par at the Reignwood LPGA Classic.

I.K. was delighted with her win, and her Eagle on 15, and also spoke about the bogey on 9;

“I feel good that I was able to play how I wanted to play, you know? Even the result, I really try not to focus on result so much.”

“Then I wouldn’t be able to perform the way I wanted.”

 “I chose to play my game and kind of paid off, I guess. Really didn’t aim to win it.”

“But actually, I mean, who knows? I can control my game. I can’t control anyone else’s game.”

”I think the 15 was really big, too. I wasn’t sure go for it or not go for it. I felt like today I really played with everything I got. I didn’t really pull back.”

“Even No. 9 I felt was right club, so, yeah, I think I managed.”

“I played aggressively, which I had to on this golf course. And especially back nine I knew that everybody was going to score, so I wanted to do the same thing.”

M.J. Hur finished in second place, just one shot back at -23 under par, a last round -3 under 70 not quite enough, three bogey’s in her first four holes dented her aspirations of winning;

“The problem was I start today’s round with two bogeys on first two holes, which is very frustrating.”

 “But I made four birdies on final five so I’m pretty satisfied with my round today.“

M.J.  was also the winner of the $50,000 prize in this year’s Red Bull Final Five Challenge;

“I’m definitely happy.”

“So exciting to play those five holes, like short par-5 and short par-5, chance to eagle.”

“So I made two eagles on second round. Anyway, it was very exciting. It was good experience.”

Defending champion Mirim Lee was third at -22 under par, a final round -5 under 68 completed a South Korean clean sweep of the top three positions on the leaderboard.

China’s number one player Shanshan Feng, -4 under 69 and Canada’s Brooke Henderson, -2 under 71, tied for fourth place at -21 under.
