Jinyoung Ko, who took the solo lead, started off happily by catching birdies on two holes in a row from the start.

Despite the persistent challenge of competitors, he allowed to pursue up to one stroke, but he did not waver.

On the 14th hole, he was hit by a tee shot mistake, but he managed to save it with an exquisite approach.

On the other hand, 2nd place Castren, who had been chasing all along, was shaken.

He missed a short putt on the 15th hole and lost his will to chase.

Jin-young Ko, who never gave up the lead on the last day, eventually won her first win of the season at 16-under.

Jinyoung Ko recorded his eighth career win in seven months after winning the championship in December last year.

This victory also boosted my confidence in the Tokyo Olympics.

At the Tokyo Olympics, which kicks off this month, Jinyoung Ko revealed her prospects for winning an Olympic medal.
