Anna shot a -4 under par 68, for a -15 under par total to claim her third career LPGA Tour title at the Honda LPGA Thailand.

Anna said she was happy her hard work had paid off;

“I'm speechless to be honest, it's been a couple years since I won.  I've been working very hard.  Had my ups and downs. Just couldn't be happier to be here.  It was such a hard push on the back nine.  Inbee kept making birdies and Michelle was playing great.  Couldn't really breathe until the last putt, so obviously I could just let go on the last putt. Michelle played great; Inbee kept pushing me at the end, I just really had to stay strong.  Had a rough first couple holes, but kept playing good on the back.”

"Just unbelievable to get that win again. You know, it was a grind this off‑season, but sitting here with the trophy it was well worth it.”

The defending Champion Inbee Park finished in second place, her final round -6 under par 66 was not quite enough to catch Anna. Her -13 under par total just two shots off the lead, but was one shot better than her winning total last year;

“I feel good, I mean, today my ball‑striking wasn't as good as yesterday, I putted better than yesterday.  So I feel like my putter is coming back. I played one shot better than last year and didn't win.  Still a very good result.  Tells me I improved a little.  I'm satisfied the way I played this weekend. I think I played a little bit better than I thought I would.”

Catriona Matthew finished the tournament with back to back rounds of -7 under par 65's scoring a -11 under par total. A first round of 76 was really her undoing. Michelle Wei was one shot further back on -10 under par, a final round -3 under par 69 was not enough to keep pace with the leaders.

Lydia Ko had a disappointing last round of +2 over par 74, which dropped her down the scoreboard to a share of 19th place at -3 under par.
