HOYLAKE, England (AP) -- Jiyai Shin avoided mistakes in miserable weather conditions to cruise to a nine-shot victory at the Women's British Open on Sunday.
With the last two rounds played Sunday, Shin held a three-shot lead after shooting a 1-under 71 in the morning. She then stayed calm while strong winds and heavy showers sent scores soaring at Royal Liverpool in the afternoon, closing with a 73 to finish with a 9-under total of 279.
She was the only player to finish below par, with fellow South Korean Inbee Park second with a 288.
Karrie Webb of New Zealand had put herself in contention with a 68 in the morning but finished with an 82 for a tie for fifth place, 12 shots back.
Play was abandoned Friday because of the bad weather, forcing two rounds to be played Sunday.
