South Korea’s Mirim Lee won the second title of her rookie LPGA Tour season, shooting a 5-under 69 in the final round on Sunday to capture the Reignwood Classic in Beijing by two strokes.
Starting the day tied for third, Lee birdied three holes on the front nine and added two more on No. 16 and 18 to offset one bogey. She finished at 15-under 277.
Lee’s first LPGA victory came just two months ago at the Meijer LPGA Classic, where she beat her third-ranked countrywoman Inbee Park in a playoff.
Top-ranked Stacy Lewis and Caroline Hedwall, the co-overnight leaders, fell short on a windy final day at Pine Valley GC.
Hedwall, who was aiming for her first LPGA title, shot a 73 to finish second at 13 under.
Lewis bogeyed No. 7 and added three more bogeys on the back nine and ended up with a 75, tying for sixth at 11 under.
Oliver Wilson held off Rory McIlroy to capture his first European Tour title with a one-shot victory in the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship at St. Andrews, Scotland.
Wilson shot a 2-under 70 in the final round on the Old Course at St. Andrews as McIlroy came up just short after a bogey on the 17th hole. Wilson finished at 17-under 271, with McIlroy (68) in a three-way tie for second with Richie Ramsay of Scotland and Tommy Fleetwood of England.
Wilson had finished second nine times in his 227 previous tour events, but lost his card three years ago and was competing this week on an invitation.
