Choi wins final LPGA tour event of the year



Na Yeon Choi capped her outstanding 2012 LPGA campaign with a two-stroke victory over fellow South Korean So Yeon Ryu on Sunday in the $1.5 million season-ending Titleholders.

Choi countered a double-bogey at the third with an eagle at the par-five fifth. She added three more birdies – the last of them at the par-four 16th, for a two-under par 70 and a 72-hole total of 14-under 274.

Her second victory of the year, after a triumph in the US Women's Open, was worth $500 000 and took her total prize money for the campaign to $1.9 million.

Ryu, who had already locked up Rookie of the Year honours, fell out of a tie for the lead with a three-putt bogey on the par-five 14th. She settled for a 70 for 276.

American Brittany Lincicome also signed for a 70 at TwinEagles for sole possession of third place on 277. Australian Karrie Webb posted a 69 for 278, with Ai Miyazato of Japan rounding out the top five after a 74 for 279.

South Korean Inbee Park finished with a share of 11th place to secure the LPGA money title and the Vare Trophy for lowest scoring average.

Stacy Lewis, the first US player to claim Player of the Year honours since Beth Daniel in 1994, finished equal 29th.
