HAIKOU, March 19 (Xinhua) -- Kim Hae-rym captured the SGF 67 World Ladies Championship with SBS as the South Korean beat compatriot Bae Seon-woo on the second hole of a play-off under wet conditions here on Sunday.
With Kim (70) and Bae (69) deadlocked at 14-under 205 through 54 holes on the Mission Hills Haikou Blackstone Course, both players made par at the first extra hole, the 371-yard first. At the next, the veteran made a birdie four at the 524-yard par-five for her third career title as Bae missed an eight-foot putt.
England's Georgia Hall (67) and South Koreans Kim Min-sun (68) and Lee So-young (69) were equal third at three strokes back in the 620,000 U.S. dollars tournament, a tri-authorized event between the China LPGA Tour, the LPGA Tour of South Korea (KLPGA) and the Ladies European Tour.
