DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Megan McChrystal birdied the final hole Monday to win the season-ending Symetra Tour Championship, and P.K. Kongkraphan won the money title to take one of 10 LPGA Tour cards.
A stroke ahead of South Africa's Paula Reto when play was suspended Sunday because of darkness, McChrystal made a 7-foot birdie putt on her lone hole Monday to beat France's Perrine Delacour by two strokes. McChrystal, a former LSU player from Stuart, Fla., had a 4-under 68 to finish at 13-under 275 on LPGA International's Champions Course.
``I think I might cry,'' McChrystal said. ``This gives me the confidence I need for Q school. Last year, I was terrified. Now, I know I'm ready.''
She earned $18,750 to jump from 58th to 18th on the money list with $27,238. Nos. 11-20 on the money list received spots in the final stage of the qualifying tournament in December.
``My goal was to make it high enough on the money list to make it to the final stage,'' McChrystal said. ``I just wanted to prove to myself that I could shoot par or better through four rounds. It'll make Q school easier knowing that I'm capable of doing that.''
Delacour closed with a 66 on Sunday. She was the only player to move into the top 10 on the money list in the finale, earning $11,590 to jump from 20th to eighth.
Reto shot 72, making a bogey and a par Monday, to finish third at 10 under.
Kongkraphan, from Thailand, tied for seventh at 4 under. She finished the season with $47,283. Giulia Molinaro was second at $39,848, followed by Marina Alex ($39,804), Christine Song ($39,309), Cydney Clanton ($38,861), Sue Kim ($37,850), Hannah Jun ($36,810), Delacour ($34,577), Alena Sharp ($34,120) and Jacyln Sweeney ($33,609).
Sweeney tied for 22nd at even par to edge Olivia Jordan-Higgins by $114 for the final LPGA Tour card. Higgins, eighth on the money list entering the tournament, missed the cut.
