GYEONGJU, South Korea, Oct. 29 (UPI) -- Jin Joo Hong was a three-shot winner Sunday at the LPGA's KOLON-Hana Bank Championship at Gyeongju, South Korea.
To win the golf tournament, Hong, a native of South Korea and a member of the Korean LPGA Tour, shot a closing 2-under-par 70. Her final total was 11-under 205.
"I thought about going to Japan because my mother lives in Japan and we haven't lived together for a long time," said Hong through a translator. She was responding to a question about her future plans.
Hong is the second straight Korean LPGA member to win this tournament.
Jeong Jang (68) finished second at 8-under 208.
Se Ri Pak (67) was third at 6-under 210.
