PETALING JAYA, April 11 (Bernama) -- South Korea turned the tables on overnight leaders Philippines to clinch a record 16th crown at the 36th Queen Sirikit Cup 2014 at the Saujana Golf and Country Club here Friday.
Gyeol Park, Lee So-young and Choi Hye-jin amassed 425 strokes for a six- stroke victory - making amends for their single-shot defeat to Australia at last year's edition in Chinese Taipei.
With the consistent Lee once again digging deep to put a three-under 69 on the scoreboard, fellow debutant Choi carded her personal best of 70 for a daily team score of 139, edging out China (143) and the Philippines (145) who finished in a share of the second spot on 431.
China equalled their best-ever finish in the history of the competition, with an impressive three-day performance by individual champion Shi Yuting, who notched rounds of 70, 68 and 71 for a seven-under 209 total.
