"I'm so happy to win in front of these fans," said Chun, 24, who had seven birdies and a bogey on Sunday.

Korea's world number one Park Sung-hyun, Australian Minjee Lee, Thailand's Ariya Jutanugarn and American Kang finished one back of Charley in a tie for third place.

England's Jodi Ewart Shadoff was in a tie for 19th on-5 five.
