PORTLAND, Ore. -- Pat Hurst shot a final-round four-under 68 to hold off Jeong Jang and win the LPGA Tour's Safeway Classic.
Hurst finished with a 10-under 206 total on the par-72, 6,327-yard course near Portland International Airport.
She watched solemnly as Jang, who was at nine under, missed an 18-foot birdie putt on the par-four 18th hole that would have forced a playoff.
Jang finished with a 70 for a nine-under 207, along with Kim Saiki, who shot a 67 on Sunday. Juli Inkster had a 70 to finish at 208.
It was Hurst's fifth victory on the LPGA Tour and first since last year's State Farm Classic. She lost to Annika Sorenstam in an 18-hole playoff at this year's U.S. Women's Open.
CHAMPIONS: Tom Kite took advantage of a wildly erratic Keith Fergus (64), who hit two spectators and the cartpath at separate times during the one-hole playoff, to win the Boeing Greater Seattle Classic in Snoqualmie, Wash. Kite, who began the day three behind second-round leader Don Pooley (70), shot a six-under 66 to finish with a three-day score of 15-under 201.
