Yang wins title 
in record style

South Korean Amy Yang sank a short birdie putt on the 72nd hole to seal a five-stroke victory at the rain-hit Honda LPGA Thailand in style yesterday, claiming the title for a second time with a new tournament record.

The 2015 champion closed with a four-under 68 at the Siam Country Club in Chonburi to finish with a 22-under total of 266, one shot lower than the previous record and well clear of nearest rival, fellow Korean Ryu So Yeon (271).

Compatriot Kim Sei Young finished a further two strokes back in third place, while Americans Lexi Thompson and Danielle Kang shared fourth place alongside another South Korean, Chun In Gee, on 13 under. - AFP
