WILLIAMSBURG, Virginia (AP) -- Lizette Salas won the Kingsmill Championship on Sunday for her first LPGA Tour title, finishing with an even-par 71 for a four-stroke victory.

Salas was never really challenged in the final round on the River Course. She started the day with a three-shot lead and doubled it with birdies on the par-5 third and par-3 fifth. A bogey 5 on No. 8 was her only hiccup -- and only her third bogey in four rounds -- until she three-putted the par-3 17th.

She finished at 13-under 271 and earned $195,000.

Yani Tseng (69) tied for second with Kraft Nabisco winner Lexi Thompson and Sarah Jane Smith. Thompson had a 69, and Smith shot 66 -- the best round of the day.
