NORTH PLAINS, Ore., Aug. 19 (UPI) -- Mika Miyazato collected her first LPGA Tour win Sunday, registering a 2-under-par 70 for a two-shot victory at the Safeway Classic.

Miyazato, 22, fired three birdies and carded a single bogey to finish at 13-under 203 at Pumpkin Ridge Golf Club, entering the winner's circle for the first time following several near-misses.

This year she has been a runner-up at both the LPGA Championship and Arkansas Championship, and also garnered a co-third-place finish at the ShopRite LPGA Classic.

Following her in second place at minus-11 were Brittany Lincicome (67) and Inbee Park (69).

Knotted for fourth at 10-under 206 were Haeji Kang (66), Cristie Kerr (70) and So Yeon Ryu (71).
