Min Seo Kwak shot a tournament-best 7-under 65 in the final round of the FireKeepers Casino Hotel Championship to sprint past the field for her second Symetra Tour win of the season. She finished at 12-under for the tournament, three strokes clear of Daniela Iacobelli.

With the win and the $15,000 paycheck, Kwak is now first on the Volvik Race for the Card money list. Kwak started the day five shots behind Jean Reynolds, who led after two rounds at 10-under-par. Kwak made seven birdies against no bogeys to fly up the leaderboard.

Kwak started her day with five straight pars before a birdie on the sixth hole. She also made birdie on the eighth hole to make the turn at 2-under. She used four straight birdies from the 14th through the 17th holes to steal the show and calmly made par on the 18th hole to seal the win.

“Today my driver was in the fairway every time. I missed one green. I had really short birdie chances and made them all so that was a good thing.”

The Seoul, South Korea native has positioned herself for a return to the LPGA in 2015. She now has a chance to return to the LPGA in 2014 if she wins a third event.

“I’m number one so I am ok this year to just go out and play fun golf. I think I will win one more and just go to the LPGA this year. That’s my goal.”

In addition to her winner’s check, Kwak took home checks for winning the Swift Award and the first leg of the 2014 Potawatomi Cup.
