EVIAN-LES-BAINS, France, July 29 (UPI) -- Inbee Park heated up down the stretch Sunday, carding birdies on the final three holes to pull away for an LPGA Tour victory at the Evian Masters.

Park took her first title since the 2008 U.S. Women's Open thanks to the late heroics, which gave her a final round of 6-under 66.

That was good for a two-shot triumph at 17-under 271. She excelled with her putter, draining a 20-foot birdie on the final hole to put an exclamation mark on her triumph.

Knotted for second place at minus-15 were fellow third-round leader Stacy Lewis (68) and Karrie Webb (67).

Shanshan Feng finished with an eagle, holing out from a bunker at No. 18 to complete a round of 6-under 66. She ended up in a fourth-place tie with Natalie Gulbis (68) and Hyo Joo Kim (68) at 14-under.
