Oh gets second LPGA win at Sybase Classic



Clifton, NJ (Sports Network) - Ji Young Oh shot a two-under 70 in tough scoring conditions Sunday to win the Sybase Classic by four strokes.

The 20-year-old Korean strung together seven straight pars down the stretch and finished with a birdie at the 18th hole to secure her second LPGA Tour victory at 14-under 274.

Oh was the only player in the last four threesomes to break par on Sunday.

"Today I did everything so right," said Oh, who earned $300,000 for the win to climb above the $1 million mark for her career.

Suzann Pettersen -- still seeking her first title since a five-win season in 2007 -- finished the round bogey-bogey to make Oh's job a little easier.

Pettersen, after sharing the third-round lead with Oh, carded a two-over 74 to end four strokes back at 10-under 278.

"There were so many chances on the back nine. I need to make putts to win tournaments and today was not [one of those days]," said Pettersen.

Michelle Wie and Paula Creamer both shot one-over 73s to share third place at eight-under 280.

Wie, 19, notched her third top-10 finish of the season, but several sloppy holes on the back nine at Upper Montclair kept her from competing seriously for her first career win.

"It was just a struggle out there, but I grinded through it and learned a lot of things for next week," said Wie.

Creamer matched her best finish of the season, but managed only two birdies with three bogeys on a chilly day.

"It felt like I shot six-over par, but I really shot one-over par. Nobody did anything out there. It was just a battle of who could make more pars and eliminate the bogeys," said Creamer. "It was really tough."

Pettersen handed Oh a two-shot lead by making bogeys at her first two holes. Oh extended that advantage to three strokes by holing a 10-foot birdie putt at No. 3.

Although Pettersen pulled within two shots again, Oh remained in control until she made bogeys at the eighth and 10th holes to fall into a tie for the lead.

The young Korean's steadiness over the next seven holes, coupled with Pettersen's erratic play, sealed the win.

Pettersen made bogey at the 12th hole -- then an inexplicable bogey on 17 when she lipped out a tap-in par putt. The mistake gave Oh a two-shot cushion heading to the 18th hole.

"Obviously that's a must-make to put some pressure on her," said Pettersen.

Oh sealed her victory with a seven-foot birdie putt at the 18th, while Pettersen closed with a bogey from the rough to finish four strokes back.

Lorena Ochoa, the 2008 champion, shot a 73 and finished tied for 19th place at one-under 287.
