Jiyai Shin of South Korea was in a league of her own as she collected her second Ricoh Women’s British Open title in five years at Royal Liverpool.
The 24-year-old former world number one shot a final round of 73 in brutal conditions to finish as the sole competitor under par for the championship on a 279, nine under total.
She was nine strokes clear of fellow South Korean Inbee Park (72) with Paula Creamer of the United States a stroke further back in third after a wet and windy 36 holes.
Lee-Anne Pace was the only representative from South Africa left to contest the final two rounds. She posted rounds of 77 and 76 to finish at 14-over-par total and tied for 39th position.
