ISPS Handa Women's Australian Open 2018 - Final Round 

Jin Young Ko from South Korea has led the way in each round to take victory at this year's Women's Australian Open. On Sunday she carded 3-under-par to finish the tournament at 14-under. She is three strokes ahead of Hyejin Choi, also from South Korea, with Australia's Hannah Green just one stroke back.

Ko began the final round four shots ahead of Green, who was then second from the lead. Green ended the final round on 3-under but Ko maintained her lead throughout. 

Kathrine Kirk ended the final round on 7-under 65, the lowest for the day. She shot four birdies in a row, from the third hole, and finished fourth. 

"It was a little bit unexpected but at the same time, I didn't make anything the first three days so I guess maybe I was due to make some today," Kirk said.

"I didn't expect to have a chance today ... the girls were playing well at the top."

Adelaide's Stephanie Na hit a hole-in-one at the par-3 third hole. She finished the tournament on 3-under. Earlier in the tournament Sweden's Jenny Haglund had also shot a hole-in-one. For acing the par-3 14th Haglund won a Genesis car.

Minjee Lee ended the tournament on 8-under, in a tie at 5th with Marina Alex (US).
