Published on

HAINAN, China (AP) -- Lee Jung-Min won the World Ladies Championship on Sunday, beating fellow South Korean players Lee Seung-Hyun, Kim Bo-Kyung and Ji Han Sol in rainy conditions at Mission Hills.

Lee Jung-Min closed with a 6-under 66 for a 9-under 279 total on the Olazabal Course in the event sanctioned by the European, Korean and Chinese tours.

"I was very surprised to win because I didn't feel that I played my best and I wasn't in the leading group," said Lee Jung-Min, a three-time winner last year on the Korean LPGA Tour. "My main goal this year is to get my best ever score on the KLPGA Tour."

Kim finished with a 69, and Ji and Lee Seung-Hyun shot 71.

Lee Jung-Min also won the team competition with Ko Jin-Young at 12 under.
