NAPLES, Fla., Nov. 18 (UPI) -- Third-round leader Na Yeon Choi fired a 2-under-par 70 Sunday to retain her advantage and post a two-stroke win at the season-ending Group Titleholders event.

Choi ended at 14-under 274 for her second career LPGA Tour win following her triumph at this year's U.S. Women's Open.

She recorded a pair of birdies on the back nine to secure the victory.

First-round co-leader So Yeon Ryu was tied with Choi on the 14th hole but then bogeyed the next and ended up carding a 70 as well that left her in second place at minus-12.

Brittany Lincicome (70) nailed down sole possession of third place also at 11-under. Karrie Webb (69) claimed fourth one shot further back.

Ai Miyazato began the day one shot off the lead but stumbled to a 74 to end up in fifth at 9-under.
