ROGERS, Ark., July 1 (UPI) -- Ai Miyazato, trailing by five strokes coming into the final day, fired a 6-under-par 65 Sunday to rally for a victory at the NW Arkansas Championship.

Miyazato took advantage of a collapse by second-round leader Veronica Felibert to collect her second title of the season and ninth of her LPGA career.

Miyazato finished at 12-under-par 201 at Pinnacle Country Club, one shot better than Azahara Munoz (65) and Mike Miyazato (67) at minus-11.

Felibert, who led by four shots after the first two rounds, fell to a 1-over 72 and dropped into a tie with Inbee Park (68) for fourth place at 10-under 203.
