Seon Hwa Lee wins the ShopRite Classic

GALLOWAY TOWNSHIP, N.J., June 4 (UPI) -- Seon Hwa Lee Sunday captured the LPGA ShopRite Classic at Galloway Township, N.J., by three shots over a trio of players.

Lee shot 8-under 63 in the final round to ward off first-round co-leader and defending champion Annika Sorenstam, Sherri Steinhauer and Jeong Jang.


She finished at 16-under 197. Her challengers were 13-under 200.

"I was a little nervous, but I kept concentrating on my game and then I didn't see a leader-board," the 20-year-old Seon said. "I didn't want the pressure."

"I made a bunch of birdies and then finished with an eagle, but made a few mistakes out there early on," said Sorenstam, who has only one win this season.

Becky Morgan (67) and Gloria Hee Jung Park (68) tied for seventh at 9-under 204.

Second-round leader Ai Miyazato shot 74 and ended tied for 13th at 7-under 206.
