KAPOLEI, Hawaii (AP) - Minjee Lee won the Lotte Championship on Saturday for her second LPGA Tour title, closing with an 8-under 64 for a one-stroke victory.
The 19-year-old Australian played a seven-hole stretch in 6 under with a chip-in eagle on the par-5 13th and four birdies. She rebounded from a third-round 74 to finish at 16-under 272 at Ko Olina.
Third-round leader Katie Burnett and U.S. Women's Open champion In Gee Chun tied for second.
Lee made an 11-foot birdie putt on the par-4 17th and got up-and-down for par on the par-4 18th, holing a 6-foot putt. She won the Kingsmill Championship last year in Virginia.
Burnett lost a share of the lead with a three-putt bogey on the par-3 16th, then missed a 6-foot birdie try on 17 and a long birdie putt on 18 in a 70. Chun finished with a 67, missing a 20-foot birdie try on 18.
