DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Rachel Rohanna closed with a 4-under 68 to win the Symetra Tour Championship, her first victory of the year in the final event.

Rohanna finished the weather-delayed event one shot ahead of Benyapa Niphatsophon, Yu Lui and Emma Talley, who all finished among the top 10 on the money list to earn LPGA Tour cards for next year.

Rohanna, who earned $30,000, still finished No. 11 on the money list by $2,509. She at least was assured of returning to LPGA International for the final stage of Q-school the week after Thanksgiving.

Niphatsophon won the money title. The other players to earn cards from being top 10 on the Symetra Tour money list were Hannah Green, Celine Boutier, Nanna Koerstz Madsen, Erynne Lee, Lindsey Weaver, Anne-Catherine Tanguay and Katelyn Dambaugh.
