Lee Ye-won,토스카지노 who started the final round with a joint lead with Lim Jin-hee, reduced two strokes in the first half and raised expectations for a second win of the season, but after recording a bogey at hole 14 (par 4), she could not reduce the number of strokes any more and tied for third place ( Bang Shin-sil (tied for 3rd place), who threatened Jin-hee Lim by catching 6 birdies up to the 15th (par 4) hole, made consecutive bogeys on the 17th and 18th holes. And once again, he bowed his head at the threshold of victory.
