South Korea’s Ji Eun-hee won

two cars last month, one thanks to a hole-in-one, the other for earn­ing a vic­tory in the Kia Clas­sic at Carls­bad, Cal­i­for­nia.

Ji aced the 14th hole dur­ing a 5-un­der-par 67, and she wound up at 16-un­der 272 at Aviara Golf Club.

Cristie Kerr posted a 4-un­der round to tie for second at 14 un­der with Lizette Salas, who shot 3-un­der.

Salas, South Korea's Kim In-kyung and Ji shared the lead af­ter the third round. Kim fin­ished with a 2-un­der round to tie for fourth place at 13 un­der with Jane Park (5 un­der on Sun­day) and Kris Ta­mulis (4 un­der).

Swe­den's Anna Nordqvist (3 un­der), South Korea's Lee Jeongeun (3 un­der) and Tai­wan's Hsu Wei-ling (2 un­der) all wound up at 12 un­der, tied for sev­enth.

Ji, a 31-year-old vet­eran who took the $270,000 win­ner's cheque in ad­di­tion to the two cars, posted her fourth ca­reer vic­tory. Her first win came in her second year on tour, 2008, and the fol­low­ing year she cap­tured the U.S. Women's Open.
