South Korea's Seo Hee-kyung won her third straight tournament with a five-shot victory in the US$300,000 Binhai Open in Shanghai yesterday, a tri-sanctioned event between the Ladies Asian Golf Tour, the Korean LPGA and the China Golf Association. Her total of nine-under-par 207 for the 54-hole event earned the 22-year-old US$45,000 for her five-stroke win over China's Yang Taoli and Melbourne-based Briton Danielle Montgomery. Seo fired a one-under-par 71 to add to her opening rounds of 70 and 66, and despite complaining of a bad back midway through the final round, she was never less than four shots clear of the field.
