Min Seo Kwak goes on birdie binge for her first Symetra Tour win


South Korea's Min Seo Kwak won the inaugural Patty Berg Memorial on Sunday at Cypress Lake for her first Symetta Tour title.

The 23-year-old Kwak had four consecutive birdies early on the back nine and finished with a 3-under-par 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.
