Hyo Joo Kim fired six birdies to close with a 64 for a 17-under, 271 total and win the HSBC Women’s World Championship by one shot. It was her lowest 18 holes since the 2019 Amundi Evian Championship, her fourth title on the LPGA Tour and first since 2016.

“My goal this year was to get a win, and I’m glad I already achieved that,” said Kim. “While I was playing on the KLPGA Tour last year, I honed my skills and wanted to adapt them to this year on the LPGA, and I’m very happy that these results came out.”

Hannah Green, sitting two strokes back of Kim’s lead heading into the 14th hole, holed out to make her second eagle of the week and then birdied the 16th to take a one-shot lead. But bogeys on her final two holes cost her a third-career win.

“I didn’t really feel like I was in it until I holed the shot on 14. That was a nice way to get my momentum. Made a really good putt on 16 to make birdie, but obviously pretty disappointed to have two 3-putts finishing. Felt a little nervous on the last, which is nice, because I guess having the spectators out there it kind of meant something to me,” said Gree. “So I’m obviously very close, so I just hope that I can continue this momentum and who knows, have a good result next week.”

Patty Tavatanakit (65), Inbee Park (70) and Xiyu Lin (71) finished in a tie for third at 15-under. So Yeon Ryu’s second-straight 70 was enough for a sixth-place finish with Carlota Ciganda at 12-under, In Gee Chun, Lydia Ko and Gaby Lopez rounded out the top-10 in a tie for seventh at 11-under. Defending champion Sung Hyun Park finished the event in a tie for 57th at 5-over.
