YANG MEI, Taiwan (AP) Suzann Pettersen won the Taiwan Championship on Sunday for her second straight LPGA Tour victory, rallying to beat Inbee Park by three strokes.
Pettersen closed with a 3-under 69 at Sunrise in winds and drizzle that made birdies tough. The Norwegian finished with a 19-under 269 and earned $300,000 for her 10th LPGA Tour title. Last week in South Korea, Pettersen beat Catriona Matthew in a playoff.
``It is a great win for me, especially coming back from behind in tough conditions like today,'' said Pettersen, who shot two bogeys. ``I just focused on every shot and stuck to my game plan.''
Park stumbled with three bogeys and shot just one birdie to end with a 74. The South Korean won two weeks ago in Malaysia for her second victory of the year and leads the money list.
Defending champion and local favorite Yani Tseng had a 71 to finish third at 15 under. She has not won an LPGA event since March.
``I know I didn't finish where I wanted to but it's getting better,'' Tseng said
Matthew was fourth at 14 under after a 70.
