HAINAN, China (AP) Minjee Lee got up-and-down one last time at Jian Lake on Sunday to win the Blue Bay LPGA for her second victory of the year and third in 17 months.

The 20-year-old Australian chipped to 3 feet from the front runoff area on the par-5 18th to match Jessica Korda's birdie and beat the American by a stroke. Lee's chip left Korda with an 18-footer for eagle from off the back edge that she missed to the left.

"It was a good fight out there, and I fought to the end," Lee said.
