Chonburi, Thailand (Sports Network) - A missed 3-foot putt by a 17-year-old helped Inbee Park win the Honda LPGA Thailand by a single stroke on Sunday.

The world No. 4 Park shot a final-round 67 at Siam Country Club's Pattaya Old Course and found the clubhouse two strokes behind overnight leader and Thailand native Ariya Jutanugarn, who squandered a chance at becoming the third youngest winner in LPGA history when she triple-bogeyed the par-5 last.

Jutanugarn, who was playing this tournament courtesy of a sponsor invite, had a chance to force a playoff with a putt for double bogey, but the Ladies European Tour rookie's short roll lipped out and she settled for a final-round 72 and a second-place finish.

Park, meanwhile, ended at 12-under 276 and picked up her fourth career LPGA victory.
