Kim In-Kyung hit a final-round 64 to ease to a three-stroke victory at the Lorena Ochoa Invitational in Guadalajara.
The South Korean’s third career LPGA crown arrived after posting nine birdies and one bogey over her final round to move to 19 under for the tournament.
Kim hit six birdies over the front nine including four in a row just before the turn. Further birdies at 11 and 15 pulled her further clear of the pack before her one error, a dropped shot at the 17th, was cancelled out by another birdie at the final hole.
Overnight leader Suzann Pettersen failed to build on her one-stroke advantage, shooting six bogeys but undone by a double bogey at the fourth that handed the impetus to Kim.
Karine Icher, of France, finished in third place, her final-round 68 leaving her on 15 under overall, while American duo Cristie Kerr and Paula Creamer finished one shot further back.
Angela Stanford enjoyed the best round of the day, her bogey-free nine-under 63 setting a new course record at the Guadalajara Country Club as she finished in a tie for seventh place.
