DENHAM, England (AP) - South Korea's I.K. Kim won the Ladies European Masters on Sunday, closing with a 3-under 68 for a five-stroke victory in the final event before the Women's British Open.
Kim had an 18-under 270 total at Buckinghamshire for her first victory since the LPGA Tour's 2010 Lorena Ochoa Invitational. She opened with rounds of 68, 63 and 68.
''I just had a great time,'' Kim said. ''It's great to win the tournament and this is my first time playing the course so I'm really honored to win the championship. I feel like I've been hitting the ball really well and putting really well so I just had to go out there and enjoy myself.''
Australia's Nikki Campbell was second after a 67.
Northern Ireland's Stephanie Meadow, the former University of Alabama star playing her second event as a professional, tied for third at 11 under with South Africa's Lee-Anne Pace and Germany's Caroline Masson. Meadow matched the course record with a 63, Pace shot 68, and Masson 69.
The Women's British Open starts Thursday at Royal Birkdale.
