Taipei, Dec. 3 (CNA) Taiwanese professional golfer Min Lee (李旻) won the 2021 WPG Ladies Open Friday, lifting the fifth LPGA Taiwan (TLPGA) Championship trophy of her career.

In the final round, Lee scored 73 to finish with a 4-over par 220, two shots clear of defending champion and current TLPGA Tour money leader Wu Chia-Yen (吳佳晏).

The trophy was also the ninth win of Lee's career and means the 26-year-old takes home the top prize of NT$1.1 million (US$39,686).

After returning to Taiwan from the United States, she took advantage of the mandatory isolation period to find her inner self, and realized how to perform to the highest level, Lee said after her win, adding that the key was her state of mind during the competition.

"Now I can face the game more positively and comfortably," she said.

During the last round Friday at Sunrise Gold and Country Club in Taoyuan, Lee had a five-shot lead after the first nine holes before three bogeys in the last nine due to windy conditions.

Meanwhile, Wu scored 71 to end with a 6-over par 222 and finish in second place.

The WPG Ladies Open is the seventh leg of the 2021 TLPGA Tour with 75 participants competing to add NT$1.1 million to their ranking on the 2021 TLPGA Tour money leaderboard.
