Katy Harris wins Symetra Tour event

PALM HARBOR, Fla. (AP) – Katy Harris won the IOA Golf Classic on Sunday for her first Symetra Tour title, finishing with a 3-under 69 for a one-stroke victory over Alejandra Llaneza.

The former LSU player had a 7-under 209 total on the Innisbrook Golf Resort’s Island Course.

“I hit the ball well all week, I putted well all week and when I hit an errant shot, I was able to get it up-and-down and make the putt,” Harris said. “There weren’t a whole lot of mistakes for me out there, I think just two bogeys maybe, I don’t know.”

She made $15,000 and earned some hardware for 6-year-old son Owen.

“He always says, `Mom, why don’t you win a trophy at a tournament because I want a trophy,'” Harris said. “I’m glad I can bring a trophy home for him.”

Llaneza, from Mexico, closed with a 68.
