Bo Bae-song captured her first LPGA Tour title when she won the Mizuno Classic by three strokes on Sunday

Bo Bae-song captured her first LPGA Tour title after winning the Mizuno Classic by three strokes on Sunday.
The South Korean returned to the clubhouse with a final-round four-under 68 to finish comfortably clear of world number one Lorena Ochoa, American Brittany Lang and compatriot Park Hee-young.
Bo picked up a birdie on the third and although she dropped a shot on the par-three fifth, she recovered with another birdie on the seventh to reach the turn in level par.
The 23-year-old then picked up four further shots coming home and despite dropping a shot on the 14th, it did little to halt her run to the title.
Ochoa, meanwhile, had been off the pace during the previous two rounds, but shot up the leaderboard today with a blistering eight-under-par 64 to claim a share of second place with Park and Lang, who carded matching 68s.
