Esther Choe wins 2nd straight on Symetra Tour

Esther Choe carded a four-under 69 Sunday to cruise to a six-stroke win at the Riviera Nayarit Classic.

Choe, who also won on the Symetra Tour last week in Florida, finished at 12- under-par 207 on the par-73 El Tigre Golf & Country Club.

She stumbled out of the gate with a bogey on the first, but rebounded with birdies on the fifth and eighth. Around the turn, Choe traded a birdie for a bogey from the 10th.

Choe ran off three consecutive birdies from the 12th to pull away. She faltered to a bogey on 17, but sealed the win with a birdie at the last.

Jean Chua (68) and Ginger Howard (69) shared second place at minus-six.

Taylor Collins matched the low round of the day with her seven-under 66. She soared 43 spots into a tie for fourth at five-under-par 214, where she finished alongside Cara Freeman (71) and Dawn Shockley (72).

Calle Nielsen started the day three stroke off the lead, but struggled to a three-over 76 that left her tied for 14th at minus-two.
