Greenwood, SC (SportsNetwork.com) - Wei-Ling Hsu closed with a 4-under 68 on Sunday and won the Self Regional Healthcare Foundation Women's Health Classic by five strokes.

Hsu, who won for the second time on the Symetra Tour, ended at 8-under-par 280 on The Links at Stoney Point.

She opened with seven pars in a row before carding three birdies in a 4-hole span from the eighth. Hsu dropped a shot on the 14th, but recovered that stroke with a birdie on the 16th.

Hsu faltered to another bogey on the par-3 17th, but she closed with an eagle at the last to win by five.
