25 year-old South Korean Park Sung-hyun carded an eight-under 64 to win the US$1.5 million 2019 HSBC Women's World Championship in Singapore. This victory was the World No.2 sixth win on the LPGA tour.

Australian Minjee Lee, who is ranked No.3 in the world, came in second. She managed to keep pace with Park and actually took the outright lead at the 13th hole, but bogeyed the par-four 14th and eventually had to settle for a final-round 69.

Meanwhile, World No. 1 Ariya Jutanugarn was hampered by two double-bogeys at the par-three fourth hole and par-five 13th. The 23-year-old Thai carded a three-over 75 to finish joint-eighth with an eight-under 280 total.

Park Sung-hyun pocketed US$225,000 for her effort.

The HSBC Women's World Championship is the fifth leg of LPGA Tour's 33-event calendar.
