GUADALAJARA, Mexico, Nov. 11 (UPI) -- Cristie Kerr came from behind Sunday, firing a 3-under 69 to claim her first win since 2010 in taking the Lorena Ochoa Invitational.

Kerr started the day two strokes behind third-round leader Inbee Park but rallied to end at 16-under-par 272, one shot better than Park and Angela Stanford.

Kerr notched her 15th career win but her first since the 2010 LPGA Championship.

Stanford fired a 4-under 68 Sunday to come close at minus-15, forging a second-place tie with Park (even-par 72).

Sharing fourth place at minus-12 were Candie Kung and Stacy Lewis (both 68s).
