CABANATUAN CITY, Philippines — In an exceptional display of skill and composure rarely seen in a junior golfer, Jiwon Lee clinched the ICTSI Lakewood Championship, upstaging some of the country's top professionals, including Chihiro Ikeda, whom she edged out on the second playoff hole at the Lakewood Golf and Country Club on Thursday.

The sudden death unfolded back at the par-5 18th hole, where Lee outlasted Ikeda by securing a routine par as Ikeda conceded while facing a bogey putt. Both players had finished the regulation play with six-under 210s, with Lee making a critical birdie on the 17th to salvage a 72, and Ikeda rallying from four shots behind third round leader Harmie Constantino to post a 70 with a birdie on the final hole.
