SOUTH Korea's Sung Hyun Park has claimed her first major title by winning the US Women's Open by two strokes in New Jersey.

Park, 23, had a final-round five-under-par 67 to finish at 11-under 277, beating compatriot, amateur Hye Jin Choi, finished second after a one-under 71.

Two South Koreans, Mi Jung Hur (68) and So Yeon Ryu (70), completed the trifecta by sharing third spot at seven under.

Australia's Minjee Lee had a last-round six-under 66 to finish tied in 11th at four under.

Park won $1.1 million.

Australians Kerrie Webb (tied 44th), Katherine Kirk (tied 48th) and Su-hyun Oh (tied 56th) finished well off the pace.
