(AP) Inbee Park doubled her lead to six strokes on the opening hole Sunday and ran away with the Kraft Nabisco Championship for her second major title.
The 24-year-old South Korean player made a 20-foot birdie putt on the par-4 first, while playing partner Lizette Salas had a double bogey for a three-stroke swing. Park closed with a 3-under 69 to finish at 15 under, four strokes ahead of So Yeon Ryu at Mission Hills.
Park celebrated the victory with the traditional leap into Poppie's Pond, and jumped from fourth to second in the world with her fifth LPGA Tour title and ninth worldwide win. South Korean players have won three straight majors and Asians have won eight in a row.
Ryu shot a 65, the best round of the tournament.
Salas had a 79 to tie for 25th at 2 under.
