Seventeen-year-old amateur Minjee Lee won the Victorian Open by six strokes Sunday for her first victory in a professional event.
Lee closed with a 6-under-par 68 to finish at 16-under 279 at the Thirteenth Beach Golf Course in the event sanctioned by the Australian tour.
Scotland's Vicky Laing was second at 10 under after a 66.
Lee, the Australian amateur champion, previously finished second behind Cheyenne Woods, Tiger Woods' niece, in the Australian Ladies Masters and tied for 11th last week in the Women's Australian Open.
