ORLANDO, Fla., Nov. 20 (UPI) -- Hee Young Park earned her first LPGA Tour win Sunday, firing a 2-under 70 for a two-stroke victory at the season-ending CME Group Titleholders.

Park collected three birdies in a four-hole span to finish at 9-under-par 279, two better than Sandra Gal and Paula Creamer.

Park has six championships on the Korean LPGA Tour.

Creamer also shot a 70 while Gal registered an even-par 72, ending knotted at 7-under 281.

Sharing fourth place at minus-6 were Na Yeon Choi (70) and Suzann Pettersen (72).

Top-ranked Yani Tseng was hampered by a right knee injury. She carded a 2-over 74, ending in a sixth-place tie with Cristie Kerr (71) and Michelle Wie (70).
