KONAN, Kochi Pref. (Kyodo) Wei Yun-jye of Taiwan benefited from a two-shot penalty handed to 2008 U.S. Women’s Open champion Park In Bee to win the Yokohama Tire PRGR Ladies Cup on Sunday.
South Korean Park was hit with the two-stroke penalty after she completed her round — one for the ball moving and another for not replacing it on the first green — at Tosa Country Club.
Wei shot a 6-under 66 for an 11-under 205 total and a one-shot victory over Park (66) and Mie Nakata (67).
The 30-year-old Taiwanese picked up her fourth career win and first since the 2006 Elleair Ladies Open.
