Ju, who won the tournament in 2016, also set the course record for women carding eight under par 64.

She shot (70, 70, and 64) for a total 204 after 54 holes.

“I am very happy to win, but I was not thinking on setting the course record for women,” she said.

“I did not score well in round one, same story in round two, but hoping to do better in the final round. The competition in the leaders was awesome.”
