Victoria Elizabeth of Dayton, Ohio grabbed ahold of the second round lead and never looked back as she fired a final-round 3-under par 68 to win the Credit Union Classic Presented by Wegmans.
 
She was joined at the top of the leaderboard by no less than 5 Canadian women in the top 7 of the LPGA Tour's developmental circuit.
 
In her third season on the Symetra Tour as professional, Elizabeth gained momentum early as she birdied her first three holes to extend her lead.
 
"I just felt good from the beginning and on the first hole I knew that if I started out with a birdie there, it would kind of set the momentum for today," said Elizabeth.
 
"I really feel like almost every hole on the front nine is a birdie hole, actually every hole out here is a birdie hole it’s just a matter of where you hit it."
