Inbee Park shot a final round 68 and finished at 19-under par to win the KPMG Women's PGA Championship for the third consecutive year and retake the No. 1 ranking in women's golf.

The 26-year-old from South Korea made five birdies and shot a bogey-free round at the Westchester Country Club, finishing the season's second major five strokes ahead of 22-year-old compatriot Sei Young Kim on Sunday.

Park, who shot a 273 for the tournament, tied the Tour record for the lowest score in a major in relationship to par and finished the four rounds with 22 birdies and just three bogeys.

It was her fifth major championship in the last 12 played on the LPGA Tour since the beginning of 2013.

''I played great the last three days,'' she said. ''I couldn't believe myself. I made no bogeys for three days.''

This is Park's sixth major title. She ties Annika Sorenstam (2003-2005) as the only golfers who have claimed this championship in three consecutive years.

Karrie Webb added another top 10 finish in a major to her already impressive resume, finishing in a tie for 7th place at 9 under par. Minjee Lee was the only other Australian to make the weekend, and she stormed up the leaderboard on Sunday to finish in a tie for 13th place at 6 under par. The LPGA takes a week off this week as the US Open takes centre stage.
