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.
