Korean twin sister A-ree Song, 14, won at the extended game in the girl`s division of the Shell World Golf Village Championship, the U.S. junior golf tournament.

Song tied Friday at 3 under par 219 with Nicle Hage of the United States at the final third round of the game, which was held at the Slammer & Squire course in St. Augustine, Florida. Then, at the extended game, she won birdie at the first hole and captured the championship.

As a result, the twin sisters won the championship for the second consecutive year as her sister Na-ree Song won the event last year.

Meanwhile, her brother Chan Song, last year`s champion in the boy`s division, failed to defend the championship title and finished fourth at 1 under par 215.
