GOFFSTOWN, N.H. — Sadena Parks won for her second Symetra Tour title in three weeks, beating Jackie Stoelting on the second hole of a playoff Sunday in the New England Charity Classic.

Parks, the 24-year-old former Washington player from Tacoma, won the SEFCU Championship two weeks ago in Albany, N.Y.

“This second win just shows how much I’ve improved over the year,” Parks said.

Parks earned $15,000 to jump from sixth to third on the money list with $51,615. The top 10 after the final four events will earn 2015 LPGA Tour cards.

“I don’t want to say that I have my LPGA Tour card yet, but it’s looking pretty good right now,” Parks said. “Ever since I was 9 years old, the LPGA Tour was my goal and it has been a long journey and now I am almost there.”
