Molly Aronsson won the Island Resort Championship on Sunday in Harris, Mich., for her first Symetra Tour title, beating former University of Washington teammate Sadena Parks by a stroke.
Aronsson, 26, from Shelburne, Vt., closed with an even-par 72 to finish at 1-under 215 at Sweetgrass Golf Club. She earned $18,750 to jump from 117th to 13th on the money list with $21,287. The final top 10 will earn 2015 LPGA Tour cards. Parks finished with a 75.
“Going neck and neck with Sadena was really cool,” Aronsson said. “ … I think playing with her yesterday kept me in it. … It’s pretty cool to finish one and two for two Huskies.”
