Swede Nordqvist wins Founders Cup on Phoenix 'home soil'

But Jutanugarn better Ko yet again, finishing in a tie for second at 23-under, two shots behind victor Anna Nordqvist of Sweden.

Stacy Lewis battled to the finish Sunday at the Bank of Hope Founders Cup, but it ended in what has become an all too familiar runner-up finish.

Nordqvist finished at 25-under 263, two strokes off the LPGA Tour record that Sei Young Kim matched past year at Desert Ridge.

Nordqvist, who is projected to move up two places in the world rankings to 11th and set a tournament record of 11-under with a 61 in the third round, said winning in Arizona was a different feeling.

"Hit a lot good shots and didn't quite get rewarded for them", said Lewis, who tied for second with Ariya Jutanugarn and In Gee Chun. They feel like family, my U.S. family.

Lewis is winless in 67 events since June 2014.

Nordqvist was always going to struggle to match Saturday's effort, when she carded nine birdies and an eagle in a flawless third round, but she did enough to protect the two-stroke lead she started out with.

Wie had six birdies in a nine-hole stretch, a run she capped with a 30-foot birdie putt on the par-4 ninth and a curling 8-footer on the par-4 10th.

"You see guys win and he (Palmer) is waiting there on the back of the green and to not have that is obviously very sad, but to win here is just a dream come true", said Leishman. "This truly still feels like home". I have family and friends here, or seem like family. She won at Desert Ridge in 2013 to reach No. 1, was second in 2014 and 2015 and tied for fourth a year ago. "A little interesting at the end, but I'm so happy and proud of myself this week". "Felt like I played pretty solid on the front and made two good putts on 13 and 17".

Top-ranked Lydia Ko also had a bogey-free week, closing with a 68 to tie for eighth at 20 under.

Nordqvist topped the leaderboard at 21-under 195.

Inbee Park (66) was another stroke back with In Gee Chun (69), Jessica Korda (66), Karine Icher (65), Chella Choi (66) and Sung Hyun Park (66).
