Brittany Lang earned her first LPGA Tour victory on Sunday after 144 starts, winning on the third hole of a playoff. She is the first Duke player to win on the tour.

Brad Bryant shot 65 to finish second.

Calcavecchia had six birdies and chipped in for eagle on the par-5 16th hole on Richelieu Valley’s Vercheres Course. He finished at 16-under 200.

“I made some nice 4-footers for pars, which were nice,” he said. “I get a little shaky on those on occasion and for some reason today I just felt good on them, and then that 16th happened and I figured that even if I bogeyed the last two holes, I’d be fine, which I was.”

Augusta native Larry Mize tied for 20th place after 71 for 213.
