JIN Young Ko made a two-foot par putt on the 18th hole to seal a one-shot victory over Matilda Castren on Sunday at the Volunteers of America Classic at The Colony, Texas.
Ko, from South Korea, shot a final-round 2-under 69 to finish with a 16-under 268 while recording her eighth career victory.
The win came in Ko’s first tournament since dropping to No. 2 behind Nelly Korda in the world rankings.
Ko said she wasn’t motivated by her drop out of the No. 1 spot. But she did allow her final round that consisted of four birdies and two bogeys at Old American Golf Course was a bit of a fight. — Reuters
