LPGA Tour

SINGAPORE – South Korean star Jiyai Shin won the HSBC Women’s Champions for her fourth LPGA Tour victory in eight months.

Shin shot her second straight 6-under 66 for a two-stroke victory over Australia’s Katherine Hull.

The 20-year-old Shin, five strokes behind Hull at the start of the round and four back with nine holes to play, had an 11-under 277 total at Tanah Merah and earned $300,000 for her first victory as a member of the LPGA Tour.

Last year before becoming an LPGA Tour member, Shin won the Women’s British Open and added victories in the Mizuno Classic in Japan and season-ending ADT Championship. She also won seven times on the Korea LPGA and took a Japanese tour event.

Angela Park (68), Paula Creamer (70) and SBS Open winner Angela Stanford (73) tied for third at 8 under. Top-ranked Lorena Ochoa, the 2008 champion coming off her 25th LPGA Tour victory last week in Thailand, shot a 70 to tie for sixth with Jane Park (73) and Sun Young Yoo (73) at 7 under.
