Ireland’s Stephanie Meadow finished in a tie for 13th as South Korean Inbee Park won the Women’s Australian Open for a 20th career LPGA title.

Meadow’s final round of 74 saw her finish at six under and pocket a cheque for $17,629.

It was quite the up and down final day for the 28-year-old who carded just one par on her front nine along with three bogeys and five birdies – four of which came on consecutive holes from the second to the fifth.

That saw her turn at nine under par and on the fringes of contention before she dropped a shot at the 10th, picked it back up at the 13th, but then reeled off three consecutive bogeys on the 14th, 15th and 16th to drop down the leaderboard.

Park went into the final round with a three-shot lead and carded a 74 to clinch the title on 14 under.

The 2016 Olympic champion finished three strokes clear of Amy Olson, of the United States, with France’s Perrine Delacour a shot further back in third.
