SAN ANTONIO (AP) - Meghan Stasi won her fourth U.S. Women's Mid-Amateur title to match the tournament record, routing Liz Waynick 6 and 5 on Thursday at Briggs Ranch.

The 34-year-old Stasi, from Oakland Park, Fla., also won in 2006, 2007 and 2010. She tied the victory record set by Ellen Port in the event limited to players 25 and older. Stasi also became the 16th player to win one USGA championship at least four times.

``Never in my life did I think I would be here right now,'' Stasi said ``So I'm so appreciative to everybody. ... It's a very long week for all involved, and you really just have to stay mentally and physically prepared. A few matches were very grueling, but I just stayed on top of my game and hoped for the best.''

Stasi won the last five holes to close out the match, and outdrove the 52-year-old Waynick by as much as 100 yards on some holes.

``I'm not a long hitter,'' said Waynick, from Scottsdale, Ariz. ``I just didn't play well today. All of us who play golf, we have good days and we have bad days. And I played great all week. She's just a great champion.

Stasi's father, Mike Bolger, has caddied for his daughter in all four victories.

``Once you get the first one that is really something, to say you are a USGA champion,'' Bolger said. ``Just building from there has been great. It's special.''
