Kwak pulls away Sunday for first Symetra title


FORT MYERS, Fla. – South Korea's Min Seo Kwak won the inaugural Patty Berg Memorial on Sunday at Cypress Lake for her first Symetra Tour title.

The 23-year-old Kwak had four consecutive birdies early on the back nine and finished with a 3-under 69 for a three-stroke victory over Australia's Stephanie Na.

Kwak won in her 65th start on the tour.

''It's really nice to win this week. I've worked harder this year than I did last year,'' Kwak said. ''I wish my mom was here to see my win, but it feels great to win.''

She earned $15,000 to jump from 37th to fourth on the money list with $19,556. The top 10 at the end of the season will earn 2015 LPGA Tour cards.

Na finished with a 71.

Cindy Feng and Demi Runas tied for third at 2 under. Feng, the money leader with $41,407, had a 71, and Runas shot 69.
