ROGERS, ARK. (AP) - Yani Tseng has shot a 6-under 65 to rally past Michelle Wie and win the Northwest Arkansas Championship.

Tseng birdied four of five holes early on the back nine, then held on for a one-stroke victory over Wie with a birdie on No. 18. She finished at 13-under 200 for three rounds. Wie (69) gave up the lead Sunday during a shaky back nine _ the same half of the course she played in 7-under 28 during a scintillating stretch Saturday.

Mika Miyazato (64) took third at 10 under.

Tseng, of Taiwan, won for the fifth time in her career, including three majors. She won the Kraft Nabisco Championship and Women’s British Open this year.
