Big breakthrough for long time student Molly Aronsson as she wins in Michigan

HARRIS, Mich.— Molly Aronsson won the Island Resort Championship on Sunday for her first Symetra Tour title, beating former University of Washington teammate Sadena Parks by a stroke.

The 26-year-old Aronsson, from Shelburne, Vermont, closed with an even-par 72 to finish at 1-under 215 at Sweetgrass Golf Club. She earned $18,750 to jump from 117th to 13th on the money list with $21,287. The final top 10 will earn 2015 LPGA Tour cards.

"This is a really special place to me and to win here with family ties is amazing," said Aronsson, whose ancestors came from Sweden and settled in Escanaba. "I love the resort. I love the course. It is just spectacular and the fans were outstanding. I just had a blast all week and that contributed a lot to the win."

Parks finished with a 75.

"Going neck and neck with Sadena was really cool," Aronsson said. "I think she is an incredible athlete and she is a former teammate of mine. I think playing with her yesterday kept me in it. ... It's pretty cool to finish one and two for two Huskies."

Katie Kempter and Canada's Sara-Maude Juneau tied for third at 1 over. Kempter finished with a 75, and Juneau shot 74.
