Jeongeun Lee has a number six to her name on the LGPAUS Women & # 39; s Open-6 Lee (Kor); -4 Yin (US), Thompson (US), Ryu (Kor); -3 Piller (US), Green (US), Higa (Jap), Liu (Chn), Boutier (Fra) Other selected: E Hull (Eng); +10 Ewart Shadoff (Eng)

Jeongeun Lee6 from South Korea has won her first big and $ 1 million with a win over the US Women & # 39; s Open.

Lee, 23, shot an under-par 70 to finish at six under, dragged night leaders Celine Boutier and Yu Liu with two shots at the start of the day, but their challenge faded in Charleston.

Americans Angel Yin and Lexi Thompson and Korean Ryu So-yeon received fourth place in four.

Charley Hull from England and world number one Ko Jin-young finished at the same level

Lee added number 6 to her name because she was the sixth player named Jeong-eun Lee on the Korean LGPA.

"That's why they portray it as Jeong-eun Lee6," she said. "But this is also my lucky number, so I'd like to put it as Lee6 as my last name."

She is the 16th player from South Korea to win a major, most of any country other than the US
