Su Yeon Jang started the day six shots behind leader Ha Na Jang, probably just hoping for a strong finish and not expecting to be victorious. Well when you produce a final round 64 (-8) to tie the course record, in most cases the dream of winning becomes a reality. This was also the case for Su Yeon.
Jang flew off the blocks from the off, with two birdies and an eagle in her opening four holes. She picked up four more birdies on her way to a flawless 64, which ended up giving her a comfortable four stroke victory.
Ha Na Jang started her final round with a four shot lead, but was unable to build on her impressive opening three rounds. After parring her opening eleven holes, a costly dropped shot in the 12th clearly rattled Jang, who was well aware of the situation unfolding around her. A birdie on the 15th temporarily gave her hope of a late fightback, but two late bogeys saw Jang finish runner up for the second time in the past three weeks.
Crowd favourite Yoon Kyung Heo finished one shot back from Jang in solo third, which could have been better but for a short par putt miss on the 18th.
But the day belonged to Su Yeon Jang, very much the deserved champion of the 39th KLPGA Championship.
