Petersen wins Safeway Classic in Portland


PORTLAND — Suzann Pettersen won the Safeway Classic for the second time in three years, taking advantage of playing partner Yani Tseng’s final-round collapse at Columbia Edgewater.

Three strokes behind leader Tseng entering the round, Pettersen closed with a 5-under 67 for a 20-under-268 total and a two-stroke victory over second-ranked Stacy Lewis (68).

It was the 32-year-old Norwegian’s second LPGA Tour victory of the year and 12th overall.

Tseng followed her third-round 63 with a 78 to tie for ninth at 12 under. The Taiwanese star is winless in 37 events since the Kia Classic in March 2012.
