RIO DE JANEIRO, May 6 (UPI) -- First-round co-leader Pornanong Phatlum fired a 6-under 67 Sunday, pulling away to score a four-stroke victory at the Brazil Cup.

Phatlum was knotted with Karine Icher after 18 holes of the two-round unofficial LPGA Tour event, but used five birdies on the front nine to open up a lead and cruise to a win at Itanhanga Golf Club.

She finished at 13-under 133, four better than Amy Hung (65) at minus-9.

Sharing third at 8-under were Chella Choi (67) and Paula Creamer (69).

Icher stumbled to an even-par 73, ending in a tie for fifth at 7-under.
