(AP) DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - Megan McChrystal birdied the final hole Monday to win the season-ending Symetra Tour Championship, and P.K. Kongkraphan won the money title to take one of 10 LPGA Tour cards.

A stroke ahead of South Africa’s Paula Reto when play was suspended Sunday because of darkness, McChrystal made a 7-foot birdie putt on her lone hole Monday to beat France’s Perrine Delacour by two strokes. McChrystal, a former LSU player from Stuart, Fla., had a 4-under 68 to finish at 13-under 275 on LPGA International’s Champions Course.

"I think I might cry," McChrystal said. "This gives me the confidence I need for Q school. Last year, I was terrified. Now, I know I’m ready."

She earned $18,750 to jump from 58th to 18th on the money list with $27,238. Nos. 11-20 on the money list received spots in the final stage of the qualifying tournament in December.

"My goal was to make it high enough on the money list to make it to the final stage," McChrystal said. "I just wanted to prove to myself that I could shoot par or better through four rounds. It’ll make Q school easier knowing that I’m capable of doing that."

Delacour closed with a 66 on Sunday. She was the only player to move into the top 10 on the money list in the finale, earning $11,590 to jump from 20th to eighth.

Reto shot 72, making a bogey and a par Monday, to finish third at 10 under.

Kongkraphan, from Thailand, tied for seventh at 4 under. She finished the season with $47,283. Giulia Molinaro was second at $39,848, followed by Marina Alex ($39,804), Christine Song ($39,309), Cydney Clanton ($38,861), Sue Kim ($37,850), Hannah Jun ($36,810), Delacour ($34,577), Alena Sharp ($34,120) and Jacyln Sweeney ($33,609).

Sweeney tied for 22nd at even par to edge Olivia Jordan-Higgins by $114 for the final LPGA Tour card. Higgins, eighth on the money list entering the tournament, missed the cut.
