Breanna Elliott wins Symetra Tour title

Australia’s Breanna Elliott has won the Fuccillo Kia Championship by a stroke for her first Symetra Tour title.

Elliott closed with a 2-under 69 to finish at 13-under 200 at Capital Hills at Albany, New York on Sunday. She earned $US15,000 ($A20,395) and a 2015 Kia Optima LX.

“My new Kia, this is amazing,” said Elliott, sporting green hair and a nose ring. “I’ve been driving a rental all year and this car is definitely the cherry on top.”

She jumped from 78th to 23rd on the money list with $US20,722. The top 10 at the end of the season will earn 2016 LPGA Tour cards.

“This is so sweet, I am so stoked and this is just unbelievable,” Elliott said.

“I’m so happy right now, this is what I have been working for and this is huge for me. This is the first step in the right direction. This is for my family back home. I know they are going to be celebrating tonight.”

Elliott birdied the par-3 16th and closed with two pars.

“I felt really calm and I am normally a pretty relaxed person, but I thought when I was put into the moment that the nerves would creep in, but I felt this unbelievable calm,” Elliott said.

“It was nice to hit a great shot on the last hole and then roll a good putt up there. Waiting to tap in the putt was just agony, but I am super pleased.”

France’s Fiona Puyo and Canada’s Augusta Bath tied for second. Puyo had a 65, and James shot 69.

Casey Grice, Lindy Duncan and Canada’s Sue Kim followed at 10 under. Grice and Duncan shot 67, and Kim had a 70.
