June 23 (Reuters) - Australian Hannah Green made her first LPGA Tour victory a major when she won the Women’s PGA Championship by one stroke from Park Sung-hyun in Chaska, Minnesota on Sunday.
Green got up-and-down from a greenside bunker at the final hole, sinking a clutch four-foot putt for the victory at Hazeltine National.
She carded an even-par 72 to complete a wire-to-wire triumph.
Green finished at nine-under 279, while last year’s champion Park (68) birdied the final hole for second place on 280. (Reporting by Andrew Both in Cary, North Carolina; Editing by Ken Ferris)
