INBEE Park claimed her seventh Major title after seeing off the challenge of fellow South Korean Ko Jin-young to win the Women’s British Open at Turnberry. The world number one shot seven birdies and an eagle during a seven-under round of 65 – the joint lowest of the week. This gave her a three-shot victory over Ko, whose debut Major ended with a 71 to leave her nine under.

England’s Melissa Reid (72) and Wales’ Amy Boulden (71) finished joint ninth on four under.

Ryu So-yeon continued the South Korean dominance of the event with a stellar back nine that comprised four birdies to give her a four-under 68 and a tie for third along with Lydia Ko (69), who represents New Zealand but was born in Seoul.

South Africa’s Lee-Anne Pace closed with a 68 for 290 to tie for 24th while compatriot Ashleigh Simon shared 66th place on 300 after a 75.
