EL DORADO, Ark. (AP) Jackie Stoelting won the El Dorado Shootout on Sunday for her first Symetra Tour title, closing with a 2-under 20 for a three-stroke victory.

The 29-year-old former Florida Southern player finished at 3-under 213 at Mystic Creek and earned $15,000 - after making only $7,475 in 18 events this year on the LPGA Tour.

Stoelting finished third on the Symetra Tour money list last season to earn her LPGA Tour card, but struggled and is preparing for the final stage of LPGA Qualifying School.

Ally McDonald was second after a 71.

Chie Arimura and Daniela Iacobelli tied for third at 1 over. Arimura shot a 71, and Iacobelli had a 72.
