GUADALAJARA, Mexico, Nov. 17 (UPI) -- American teenager Lexi Thompson drained a birdie on the final hole Sunday, outpacing Stacy Lewis to claim the Lorena Ochoa Invitational.

Thompson's late heroics completed a round of 3-under 69 and put her at 16-under 272 -- one better than the hard-charging Lewis.

The 18-year-old notched her second victory of season and third of her LPGA Tour career.

Lewis settled for a 2-under 68 after missing a chance to force a playoff on the 18th when she missed a short birdie try.

Capturing third place at 13-under was So Yeon Ryu (69).

Inbee Park (69) took fourth at 11-under 277, followed by Pornanong Phatlum (71) and Suzann Pettersen (70) in fifth at minus-10.
