S Meadow (NI), L Pace (SA), C Masson (Ger)

In-Kyung Kim secured her second European Tour title with a five-shot victory in the Ladies European Masters.

The 26-year-old shot a four-under-par 68 on the final day to finish 18 under at Buckinghamshire Golf Club.

World number 24 Kim carded all four of her birdies on the front nine to beat Australia's Nikki Campbell into second.

Northern Ireland's Stephanie Meadow shot a superb 63 to claim a share of third place with Lee-Anne Pace and Caroline Masson on 11 under.

Meadow, 22, also finished third on her professional debut at last month's US Women's Open.

Kim had led by four strokes overnight and was never seriously threatened as she won her first title since the 2010 Lorena Ochoa Invitational.

"It's my first time playing this championship so I am really honoured to win," she said.

"I feel like I have been hitting the ball really well and putting well so I just had to go out there and enjoy myself."
