IRVING, Texas (AP) Stacy Lewis shot a 7-under 64 on Sunday to win the North Texas LPGA Shootout, finally getting another victory after six runner-up finishes in her previous 16 tournaments.

Lewis finished at 16-under 268, six strokes ahead of Meena Lee. That is the largest margin of victory on the LPGA Tour since Jiyai Shin won the 2012 Women's British Open by nine.

Lee shot 70. Michelle Wie had a 67 to finish third at 9 under.

It was the ninth career LPGA Tour victory for Lewis, and will boost the Texan from No. 3 to No. 2 in the world ranking.

Lewis made a putt from about 25 feet off the fringe at the 540-yard seventh for an eagle. She followed that with consecutive birdies to make the turn at 14 under and up by three strokes.
