Kim Hyo-joo earned her fourth LPGA victory in Singapore on Sunday, marking her first LPGA win in over five years.

The 26-year-old golfer clinched the HSBC Women's World Championship title at 17-under 271 to beat Hannah Green of Australia by one stroke, with an eight-under 64 in the final round at Sentosa Golf Club's New Tanjong Course.

The South Korean took home 240,000 dollars in prize money.

Kim played only on the Korea Ladies Professional Golf Association Tour last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

She won two KLPGA trophies and topped the money list.

But the last time she captured an LPGA tournament was in 2016 at the Pure Silk Bahamas LPGA Classic.

"Winning after such a long time, it feels like my first win of all," Kim said in a conference.

"It feels like a dream at this moment."

Fellow South Koreans Park In-bee tied at third with 15-under, Ryu So-yeon placed sixth with 12-under, and Chun In-gee ranked 7th with 11-under.
