ADELAIDE, Australia (AP) — Seven-time major champion Inbee Park saw a seven shot lead shrink to two shots before winning the Women's Australian Open by three strokes.

It was her first LPGA title in almost two years. Park started her final round three shots in front of 19-year old South Korean compatriot Ayeon Cho.

She bogeyed the ninth hole but still turned five shots ahead of the field and went out to a seven shot lead early on the back nine at the Royal Adelaide Golf Club.

She walked off the 16th green only two shots ahead of American Amy Olsen but finished strongly to claim her 20th LPGA title.
