Irving, TX (Sports Network) - Inbee Park birdied her final hole on Sunday to hold off overnight-leader Carlota Ciganda and win the inaugural North Texas LPGA Shootout by a single stroke.

Park entered the final round two strokes off the pace, but she was able to grab the lead when Ciganda bogeyed No. 14 and tripped to a double bogey on the next hole at Las Colinas Country Club.

Ciganda rallied with a birdie on the final hole to pull even with her playing partner, but the world No. 1 Park calmly followed with an 8-foot birdie make of her own to lock up her sixth career LPGA Tour victory and third of the season.

Park, who won the season's first major, the Kraft Nabisco Championship, earlier this month, carded a final-round 4-under 67 and ended 72 holes at 13- under 271.

Ciganda shot a final-round 70, finished at 12-under-par 272, and was denied her first LPGA Tour win.

More to follow.
