Jackie Stoelting wins second straight Symetra Tour event
SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) Jackie Stoelting won consecutive Symetra Tour events for the second straight year Sunday, taking the Four Winds Invitational by a stroke.
Stoelting finished with a 5-under 67 for a 7-under 209 total at Blackthorn Golf Club. She earned $22,500 to jump from sixth to second on the money list with $52,946, with the top 10 at the end of the season earning LPGA Tour cards.
Stoelting rebounded from a bogey on the par-5 16th with a birdie on the par-3 17th and closed with a par on the par-4 18th. She made four straight birdies on Nos. 9-12.
Two weeks ago in Albany, New York, Stoelting made a 28-foot birdie putt on the second hole of a playoff with Emma Talley to win the Fuccillo Kia Championship. Last year, the former Florida Southern player won events in Arkansas and Texas in consecutive starts.
Ally McDonald was second after a 67.
Marina Choi was another stroke back at 5 under after a 71.
