Evian Masters title goes to Jiyai Shin

Jiyai Shin of South Korea birdied the 18th hole to win the Evian Masters tournament on Sunday in Evian-Les-Bains, France.

She shot a 5-under-par 67 to finish at 14 under par and one stroke ahead of Morgan Pressel (70), Na Yeon Choi (66) and 15-year-old Alexis Thompson of the United States, (67).

Shin, who had five birdies in the final round put her in the driver’s seat as Pressel’s putt to force a playoff rolled over the hole without dropping in.

Shin, who is 22 years old, became the first South Korean to win the Evian Masters and earned $487,500 for the win. She now has seven LPGA Tour wins in two years, winning her first career victory at the British Open in 2008.

Shin briefly held the number 1 world ranking for seven weeks after Lorena Ochoa’s sudden and shocking retirement a few months ago. She had an emergency appendectomy just weeks ago, and only recently returned to competitive golf.
