PRATTVILLE, Ala. (AP) — Mi Jung Hur held off top-ranked Stacy Lewis on Sunday to win the Yokohama Tire LPGA Classic, finishing with a 6-under 66 for a tournament-record 21-under 267 total.
The 24-year-old South Korean player birdied four of the final eight holes to beat Lewis by four strokes for her second LPGA Tour victory.
Hur opened with rounds of 64, 70 and 67 on Capitol Hill's links-style Senator layout. She broke the tournament mark of 19 under set by Katherine Hull-Kirk in 2010. It was the best 72-hole score of Hur's career.
Lewis won in 2012 at the tournament that was dropped from the schedule last year after losing its title sponsor. She also closed with a 66.
Rookie Paula Reto was third at 14 under after a 73. She shared the third-round lead with Hur at 15 under.
KAPOLEI, Hawaii (AP) — Paul Goydos won the Hawaii Championship for his first Champions Tour title, breaking out of a tight pack with four straight birdies.
Making his fifth start of the 50-and-over tour since turning 50 in June, Goydos closed with a 4-under 68 at Kapolei Golf Club for a tournament-record 19-under 197 total. He opened with rounds of 66 and 63 for a share of the second-round lead with Fred Funk.
Funk finished with a 69 to tie for second with Scott Dunlap. Funk had a hole-in-one on No. 16, using a 4-hybrid on the 200-yard hole. Dunlap shot a 65.
After birdieing Nos. 14-17 to take a two-stroke lead, Goydos scrambled for bogey on the par-4 18th after flying his approach over the green. He started the birdie run with a 6-footer on the par-5 14th, hit a 140-yard shot to an inch on the par-4 15th, holed a 15-footer on the 16th and made a 6-footer on the par-5 17th.
Goydos won twice on the PGA Tour, the last in the 2007 Sony Open in Hawaii. He broke the tournament record of 14-under 202 set by Willie Wood in 2012 in the inaugural event.
Davis Love III struggled in his Champions Tour debut, closing with a 72 to tie for 64th in the 81-man field at 3 under. The 20-time PGA Tour winner turned 50 in April.
