GUADALAJARA, Mexico, Nov. 13 (UPI) -- Catriona Matthew breezed to a victory Sunday at the Lorena Ochoa Invitational, firing a 1-under-par 71 to claim a four-stroke triumph.

Matthew finished at 12-under 276, collecting her fourth career LPGA Tour win. She held an eight-shot lead at one point and was never seriously threatened despite a late letdown.

Matthew finished in the 60s in three of her four rounds, gaining only her fourth Top 5 finish of the year over the course of 18 events.

Tied for a distant second at minus-8 were defending champion I.K. Kim (71) and Anna Nordqvist (71).

Three shots further back at minus-5 were Hee Kyung Seo (69), Ai Miyazato (71) and Juli Inkster (72).
