GREENWOOD, S.C. - Taiwan's Wei-Ling Hsu won the Symetra Tour's Self Regional Healthcare Foundation Women's Health Charity Classic on Sunday, closing with an eagle for a 4-under 68 and a five-stroke victory.
The 19-year-old Hsu had an 8-under 280 total at The Links at Stoney Point and earned a tour-record $30,000 to jump from 81st to fourth on the money list with $31,810. The final top 10 will earn 2015 LPGA Tour cards.
"It's very exciting to win this tournament," Wei-Ling Hsu said. "The big prize is very good. ... A four-day event is very tough and everybody knows how important the money list is on the Symetra Tour. We also have to travel a lot and spend a lot of money and the money is very important for me and my family."
If she also wins the Friends of Mission Charity Classic next week in Asheville, North Carolina, and the Symetra Classic in Charlotte, North Carolina, in two weeks, she will receive $1 million.
Hsu won the Credit Union Challenge last year in Albany, New York, and finished 15th on the money list.
Spain's Marta Silva, France's Joanna Klatten and South Korea's Min Seo Kwak tied for second. Silva and Klatten shot 71, and Kwak had a 72. Kwak won the Patty Berg Memorial last week in Florida.
