A final round charge from Lydia Ko has seen her earn a top 10 finish at the LPGA's Women's World Championship in Singapore.

Ko carded a five-under par 67 in her final round to finish at 12-under, five shots behind leader Michelle Wie, who sunk a lengthy putt from off the green on the final hole to claim a dramatic victory.

With four players in contention to win the tournament on the last hole at the Sentosa Golf Club, Wie separated herself from the pack when she birdied the 72nd hole for a final round of seven-under 65 to finish at 17-under 271.

Ko was briefly in the chasing pack, moving into a share of third at one point after carding five birdies and an eagle through her first 10 holes. However, she couldn't keep up that scorching pace, with a double bogey on the par-five 16th dropping her out of contention.

She had earlier just missed several birdie opportunities, but a victory was always unlikely, and the double bogey dropped her back into a share of tenth.

It was a strong finish for Ko, who carded consecutive rounds of 67 on the weekend, after starting with two rounds of 71.

Jenny Shin (65) made her only bogey of the day on the last hole to finish in a four-way tie for second at 16-under with third round leader Nelly Korda (71) and Danielle Kang (70), who both missed birdie putts that would have forced a playoff, as well as Brooke Henderson (67).

However, Wie triumphed, ending an LPGA tournament win drought dating back to the 2014 U.S. Women's Open.
