Lang stays 1-shot ahead of Lee in Korea

Share

With Ciganda bogeying four of the final five holes, Lee found herself with a chance to win at the 18 tee, needing a par at the last to secure her first victory and just the third title for the Americans this year. She was the first-round leader after a 65, but dropped to second place behind Lang, the reigning U.S. Women's Open champion, after the second round.

Ciganda played the final five holes in four-over - making a double bogey on 14 and bogeys on 16 and 18 - for a two-over 70.

Lee shot a 4-under 68 in calm and firm conditions at Sky 72, saving par on 17 and birdieing 18 to stretch her margin over U.S. Women's Open champion Brittany Lang - her U.S. Solheim Cup teammate. It was the Pamplona native's first win on the LPGA Tour and earned her a winner's cheque for $300,000. She made a 4-footer on the par-5 18th, seeing the line when Cristie Kerr - the third member of the all-Solheim Cup (and all-PXG equipment) group - hit a bunker shot inches behind Lee's marker and holed her birdie putt.

A day after Se Ri Pak ended her Hall of Fame career in front of her home fans, Lang almost aced the 251-yard 15th.

Three other South Koreans are in the top 10 heading into the final day, including Park Sung-hyun, the seven-time victor on the Korea LPGA (KLPGA) Tour this year.

Ciganda finished the final round at 2-under-par 70 and at 10-under par for the tournament. He missed a 5-foot birdie on the 12th hole, his last of the day. It was becoming a comedy of errors but Ciganda was able to get up and down for birdie at the first extra hole to win.
