YANG MEI, Taiwan (AP) — Suzann Pettersen won the Taiwan Championship on Sunday for her second straight LPGA Tour victory, rallying to beat Inbee Park by three strokes.
Pettersen closed with a 3-under 69 in wind and drizzle on the at Sunrise course. The Norwegian finished with a 19-under 269 and earned $300,000 for her 10th LPGA Tour title.
"It is a great win for me, especially coming back from behind in tough conditions like today," Pettersen said. "I just focused on every shot and stuck to my game plan."
Last week in South Korea, she beat Catriona Matthew in a playoff.
"I tee it up every week to try and win," Pettersen said. "Obviously, winning last week gave me perhaps a bit more confidence believing that what I do is the right thing. ... I don't think I've enjoyed myself so much on the golf course like I have the last three or four weeks, so I think that might be a huge part of it. Really playing with my heart, playing with my instinct, even on the last shot. Just being aggressive."
Park shot a 74. The South Korean won two weeks ago in Malaysia for her second victory of the year and leads the money list.
"Today, I hit the ball good, I think," Park said. "Just, putts just didn't fall. I mean I holed a lot of putts the last three days, so I guess today was just unlucky day. Just try to take the things from this week and go on to next week."
