Park takes advantage to win LPGA Thailand


CHONBURI, Thailand — South Korea’s Inbee Park took advantage of 17-year-old Thai star’s Ariya Jutanugarn’s closing triple bogey to win the LPGA Thailand by a stroke.

Jutanugarn blew a two-stroke lead on the par-5 18th, driving into an unplayable lie in a bunker, hitting over the green and three-putting for an 8.

Park shot a 5-under 67 to finish at 12 under, and earned $225,000 for her fourth LPGA Tour title. Jutanugarn had a hole-in-one on the par-3 12th and closed with a 72.

Top-ranked Yani Tseng had a 63 to tie for third at 10 under with So Yeon Ryu (68), Stacy Lewis (70) and Beatriz Recari (70).
