Bronte Law today became the 9th Englishwoman to win an LPGA Tour title with a two-shot victory over Brooke Henderson, Madelene Sagstrom and Nasa Hataoka at the Pure Silk Championship at the Kingsmill Resort in Williamsburg in Pennsylvania.

Law, a two-time winner of the Women’s English Amateur Championship, a Curtis Cup representative and a much-heralded player while attending college in the US, is in her third season on the LPGA Tour and earlier this month recorded her best LPGA finish when runner-up at the Mediheal Championship.

Today she took a share of the lead with Hataoka into the final round and with four birdies in her first eight holes established a winning break which could not be bridged.

Minjee Lee fought back after a slow start to the event with consecutive weekend rounds of 67 to finish 13th and lead the Australians after being 54th at the halfway mark.

It was, though, an impressive fightback for the world number two, especially given the approaching US Women's Open next week.

Lee’s fellow West Australian, Hannah Green, also finished with a final round of 67 to tie for 21st while Karrie Webb and Robyn Choi tied for 63rd place.

The world of women’s golf plays its second major of the year this coming week when the US Women’s Open is held in Charleston in South Carolina.
