For the first time since her major breakthrough at the 2008 U.S. Women's Open, Inbee Park is a winner on the LPGA Tour.
With a final round of 6-under 66, the 24-year-old Korean won the Evian Masters by two shots over Karrie Webb and 54-hole co-leader Stacy Lewis. Park's 17-under total is the lowest winning score in the event since Wendy Doolan won in 2004.
''It feels great. It was four years ago but it feels longer than that,'' Park said.
Park made birdies on the final three holes to pull away from the bunched contenders at Evian Golf Club.
For her part, Lewis (68) made a stunning run to close, playing the final four holes in 4 under par. A closing eagle, however, was only good enough to land her in a tie for second with Karrie Webb, the 2006 champion of this event. Webb made birdie on the final two holes.
Natalie Gulbis ended up in a tie for fourth place with LPGA Championship winner Shanshang Feng and 17-year-old Korean amateur Hyo Joo Kim.
THAT WAS FUN, RIGHT?!
