KAPOLEI, Hawaii (AP) Stacy Prammanasudh shot a 4-under 68 on Saturday to hold off Jee Young Lee by a stroke and complete a wire-to-wire victory in the Fields Open.

The 27-year-old Prammanasudh had five birdies and sealed her second LPGA Tour title by 2-putting for par from 20 feet on No. 18 to finish at 14-under 202.

Lee closed with a bogey-free 68.

Prammanasudh was sharp and steady all day, never allowing anyone to catch her. The former University of Tulsa star also won the Franklin American Mortgage Championship in 2005, the last tournament she led heading into the final round before this week.

After holing her final putt, a 2-footer for par, she shook her arms in the air and kissed her husband, who also is her caddie.

Rookie Angela Lee (71), making her second LPGA Tour start as a pro, Japanese star Ai Miyazato (66) and 18-year-old Morgan Pressel (69) tied for third at 11 under.

With a three-hour rain delay Friday, 70 players had to return to the course Saturday morning to complete the second round.
