Steen wins by 4 in North Carolina


The Sports Network

Asheville, NC ( - Marissa Steen closed with a 3-under 69 on Sunday and she cruised to a 4-stroke win at the Friends of Mission Charity Classic.

Steen, who won for the second time this season and in her career on the Symetra Tour, ended at 8-under-par 208.

She traded birdies at two and three for bogeys at six and eight. Around the turn, Steen birdied four of five holes from the 13th to jump to minus-9. She bogeyed the last, but that just trimmed her winning margin by a stroke.

Last week's winner Wei-Ling Hsu shot 2-under 70 to take second place at minus-4. Casey Grice was one shot back at 3-under 213 after a final-round 72.

Jackie Stoelting (73) and Laura Gonzalez Escallon (71) tied for fourth at minus-2.
