BROKEN ARROW, Okla. (AP) _ Annika Sorenstam won her fifth LPGA Tour event of the year by shooting a 1-under 70 final round for a four-shot victory at the John Q. Hammons Classic.

Sorenstam finished at 9-under 204 total to win this event for the second time. She had a three-stroke lead entering the round.

Shi Hyun Ahn closed with a 69 and finished second. Candie Kung also had a final-round 69 and was third.

Joanne Morley, in the final group with Sorenstam, closed within a stroke of the lead after opening with two birdies. But she bogeyed five of the next six holes, missing a 3-foot par putt at the third and a 6-footer at the fifth. She also missed the fairway at the par-4 7th and went on to finish with a 76, at even-par 213.
