The world No. 2 dominated the final round at the Oregon Golf Club, with a tournament cut from 72 to 54 holes due to rain. Ko built on a one-stroke lead, which she held heading into the final round, pulling away from the competition.
Finishing four shots ahead of Su Oh and Jeongeun Lee, Ko tapped out at -11. The 26-year-old shot three birdies and 15 pars for a final-round 69 to secure the victory on Sunday.
Ko’s Portland Classic win marks her ninth LPGA title.
