A 1-under 71 is enough for Matthew’s 4th title

GUADALAJARA, Mexico - Catriona Matthew won the Lorena Ochoa Invitational on Sunday for her fourth career LPGA Tour title, closing with a 1-under 71 for a four-stroke victory in the 36-player event.

Matthew, whose last LPGA Tour victory came in the 2009 Women’s British Open, had a 12-under 276 total at Guadalajara Country Club and earned $200,000.

“I’m absolutely delighted,’’ the 42-year-old Matthew said. “I don’t think it’s quite sunk in yet. I got off to a good start and hung in there. I’m so exhausted at the moment, but I’m sure I will pick up after a margarita.’’

She also won the Ladies European Tour’s Scottish Open in August.

“This is where all the best players in the world play and to win in such a limited field with all the top players playing, it’s such a boost of confidence,’’ Matthew said.

Anna Nordqvist and 2010 winner Kim In-kyung tied for second. They each shot a 71.

Hall of Famer Juli Inkster had a 72 to share fourth place with Ai Miyazato (71) and Seo Hee-kyung (69) at 5 under. Michelle Wie, the 2009 winner, tied for ninth at 2 under after a 71. Top-ranked Yani Tseng shot a 72 to finish in a share of 19th at 3 over.
