Inbee Park believes it was her form with the putter that helped her notch up her 17th win on the LPGA Tour on Sunday.

The South Korean won the Lorena Ochoa Invitational in Mexico by three strokes. The world number two rolled in 24 birdies over the weekend.

"It was definitely the putter," quipped the 27-year-old after the win.

"It was really good this week. I made a lot of birdies this week."

Park also heaped praised on Mexican hero Ochoa for her achievements on and off the course. Ochoa was the first Mexican world number one in golf.

"Winning this tournament is such an honour…it's a thrill," added Park

"Lorena has done so much for women's golf even after she retired. She's inspired so many professionals, and we love to come here and play this tournament. We really miss Lorena as well. It's always fun to play this tournament."
