American Danielle Kang kept her guts to win the LPGA Drive On Championship with one stroke when the tour resumed after the corona virus in Ohio.

Kang finished seventh with a shot from the French Celine Boutier.

Boutier missed a four-legged birdie putt on the last hole that would have forced a playoff at the Inverness Club.

The English Jodi Ewart Shadoff, who had a share of the lead with Kang and Boutier who entered the last day, saw her chances disappear with a three-over 75.

Ewart Shadoff, who was chasing her first LGPA title, was in the bottom five after 12 holes of her last round, but dropped shots on the 13th and 14th and double bogeyed the 15th to finish in bottom two, five behind Kang.

It was the fourth career title for Kang, 27, whose first win was the 20 Women & # 39; s PGA Championship, and who also won in Shanghai in 2018 and 2019.

"I've been working really hard for the past seven months," she said after a substandard 70.

"I think having patience and all aspects of your golf brings confidence to your game,

" You must respect the golf course . Even small putts I did not take for granted. "

The LPGA managed only two events in January in the United States and two more in February in Australia before the season had ended due to the global pandemic.

The Inverness Club will host the Solheim Cup event between the US and Europe next year.
