KINGSMILL CHAMPIONSHIP

WILLIAMSBURG, VA.

Lexi Thompson shot a 6-under 65 to finish off a wire-to-wire victory in the Kingsmill Championship with a tournament-record 20-under 264 total. Thompson broke the tournament record of 19 under at Kingsmill’s River Course set by Annika Sorenstam in 2008. The victory came in Thompson’s third event since she lost the ANA Inspiration in a playoff after being penalized four strokes for a rules violation reported by a television viewer during the final round. The victory, Thompson’s eighth, gave her at least one in five consecutive seasons. That matches top-ranked Lydia Ko for the longest streak on tour.

ROCCO FORTE OPEN

VERDURA, SICILY

Spain’s Alvaro Quiros parred the second hole of a playoff with South Africa’s Zander Lombard to win the Rocco Forte Open and regain his European Tour card. Quiros blew a seven-stroke lead, closing with a 2-over 73 to match Lombard (68) at 14-uneer 270 at Verdura Golf Club. Lombard missed a 3-foot par putt on the second extra hole. Quiros won his seventh tour title and first since December 2011.

BMW CHARITY PRO-AM

GREENVILLE, S.C.

Stephan Jaeger won the BMW Charity Pro-Am for his second Web.com Tour victory when heavy rain washed out the final round. The 27-year-old German player shot a 7-under 65 on Saturday to reach 19-under 195. Tyler Duncan, Xinjun Zhang and Andrew Yun finished a shot back. A year after falling $3,243 short of earning a PGA Tour card through the Web.com Tour’s regular-season money list, Jaeger earned $126,000 to jump from 103rd to sixth with $138,234. The top 25 at the end of the regular season will earn PGA Tour cards.
