Hae Rym Kim claimed a dramatic play-off victory at the World Ladies Championship, as England’s Georgia Hall took a share of third spot.
Kim holed a four-footer on the second play-off hole to see off compatriot Seon Woo Bae and become the four consecutive South Korean winner of the event.
The pair had finished the week on 14 under in Haikou, with Kim birdieing two of her final three holes to post a three-under 70 on Sunday and Bae carding a final-round 69.
Hall finished a further three strokes back in joint-third alongside Min Sun Kim and Soyoung Lee, with the 20-year-old mixing four birdies with a sole blemish during her final round.
"I played well and my long game was really good," Hall said." My putting wasn't quite there today and I couldn't see the lines as well as the last two days and my pace was a bit off.
"I left quite a lot short actually, but my long game all week has been amazing, and my putting has as well, apart from today."
Scotland's Kylie Henry took a share of 13th spot, while Florentyna Parker ended tied-23rd following a three-over 76.
