Wanjoo Lee led the way for the Cobras, taking home medalist honors after firing off a final round 71 (-1) to close out the tournament at -3 and two shots ahead of the closest opponent. Lee stumbled out of the gate, dropping two strokes in the opening six holes before closing strong. Lee finished off the front nine with three consecutive birdies to make the turn at -1 on the day and -3 for the tournament.

Ethan Cairns was right behind Herold in a tie for 54th following his final round 79 (+7).
