Kwak opened her round with five straight pars before rolling in birdies at the sixth and eighth to make the turn at 7-under.

Another gain at the 10th moved Kwak to minus-8 and after three straight pars, she raced home with four consecutive birdies from the 14th to claim the title.

Reynolds countered a lone birdie with four bogeys as she failed to hang on to her lead.
