Felibert wins by 3 shots at Credit Union Classic

Syracuse, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Veronica Felibert shot a final-round, 6- under 65 on Sunday to earn a 3-shot victory at the Credit Union Classic.

Felibert finished the week at 12-under-par 201. It is her first career win on the Symetra Tour.

Back-to-back birdies at one and two had Felibert rolling early, but she gave one of those shots back with a bogey at No. 3. A birdie at the par-4 fifth got her back to minus-8 and she added her fourth gain on the front nine at No. 8.

After making the turn with pars on nine and 10, Felibert drained her fifth birdie of the round at No. 11. She gave that shot back with her second bogey at No. 12, but she responded three holes later with another birdie at 15.

Felibert coasted to victory with a par at No. 16, followed by back-to-back birdies on 17 and 18 to end her week at 12-under.

Lindy Duncan finished in sole possession of second place at minus-9 following her final-round 66. Right behind her were Numa Gulyanamitta (66), Calle Nielson (68) and Garrett Phillips (68), all of whom ended at 8-under 205.

Laura Gonzalez Escallon (67), Lili Alvarez (69) and Rachel Rohanna (71) finished tied for sixth at 6-under, six shots back of Felibert.
