Marathon vic­tory


KRIS Ta­mulis, a 10-year LPGA vet­eran, ral­lied from three shots back yesterday to lift her first tour ti­tle at the LPGA Clas­sic.

The Amer­i­can fired eight birdies in a seven-un­der par 65, her 17-un­der to­tal of 271 giv­ing her a one-stroke vic­tory over for­mer world No. 1 Tseng Ya-ni and third-round leader Austin Ernst.

Af­ter weather de­lays of more than five hours, play­ers faced a marathon fi­nal day.

Ta­mulis played 29 holes, get­ting on a roll with a thir­dround 67 yesterday morn­ing.

Amer­i­cans Syd­nee Michaels (67) and Lexi Thompson (69) shared fourth place on 274.
