Hannah Green’s spectacular 30-foot birdie on the last hole secured a one-stroke triumph over Celine Boutier at the HSBC Women’s World Championship on the LPGA Tour in Singapore.

Yuna Nishimura displayed exceptional performance with six birdies during the final round to finish at 9-under 279, sharing the third spot with Brooke Henderson, Mi Hyang Lee, and Nasa Hataoka.

Green’s remarkable final round included six birdies, with three coming in the last three holes. She finished at 13-under-par 275 at the Sentosa Golf Club.

This victory marked the 27-year-old Australian’s fourth LPGA title and her first since winning the JM Eagle LA Championship last year.

Reflecting on her victory, Green emphasized the importance of being aggressive on the greens and ensuring her putts reached the hole, stating, “I needed to be aggressive … versus leaving them short.”

Boutier, who led by two strokes towards the end of the final round, was surpassed by Green’s late heroics despite a strong performance. The Frenchwoman concluded the tournament at 12 under-par 276.

Boutier, a 30-year-old with four titles from the previous season, expressed contentment with her performance, highlighting the improvement in her game and her satisfaction with the opportunities she created.

Ayaka Furue, the overnight leader from Japan, faced disappointment with a 3-over final round, landing her in a tie for eighth place at 7-under 288 in the 66-player field of the no-cut tournament.

Jin Young Ko, the two-time defending champion, and Patty Tavatanakit, the winner of the previous week’s LPGA event in Thailand, also shared the eighth spot.

Lilia Vu, a two-time major winner, withdrew from the final round due to illness after initially being tied for second following the opening round.

The tournament in Singapore is part of the LPGA Tour’s series of events in Asia, with the next stop scheduled in China for the Blue Bay event on Hainan Island, followed by the tournament in Palos Verdes, California starting on March 21.
