SYLVANIA, Ohio — So Yeon Ryu rode a string of six straight birdies in the middle of her round to a 9-under 62 and a seven-stroke victory Sunday in the Jamie Farr Toledo Classic.
The 22-year-old began the day in the midst of a four-player logjam — all South Koreans — for first place. She took the lead by herself for the first time with an 8-foot birdie putt at the third hole and gradually stretched her advantage until pulling away with birdies on Nos. 9-14.
Angela Stanford made a long birdie putt on the final hole for 66 to finish second.
Ryu, whose only previous LPGA Tour win was the 2011 U.S. Women's Open, ended up at 20-under 264 — thanks to the lowest final round by a Farr winner.
