Jenny Shin wins in Texas for first LPGA Tour title

IRVING, Texas (AP) Jenny Shin won the Volunteers of America Texas Shootout on Sunday for her first LPGA Tour victory, pulling away for a two-stroke victory at Las Colinas.

Making her 133rd tour start, Shin closed with a 4-under 67 to finish at 14-under 270. The 23-year-old South Korean player went to high school in Torrance, California, and won the 2006 U.S. Girls' Junior.

Shin birdied three of the first five holes, added another on the par-5 10th and closed with eight pars.

Third-round leader Gerina Piller, the area resident seeking her first tour victory, birdied the final hole for a 73 to tie for second with South Koreans Amy Yang and Mi Jung Hur. Yang and Hur each shot 71.
