PRATTVILLE, Ala. (AP) - Mi Jung Hur held off top-ranked Stacy Lewis on Sunday to win the Yokohama Tire LPGA Classic, finishing with a 6-under 66 for a tournament-record 21-under 267 total.

The 24-year-old South Korean player birdied four birdies of the final eight holes to beat Lewis by four strokes for her second LPGA Tour victory.

Hur opened with rounds of 64, 70 and 67 on Capitol Hill's links-style Senator layout. She broke the tournament mark of 19 under set by Katherine Hull-Kirk in 2010.

Lewis won in 2012 at the tournament that was dropped from the schedule last year after losing its title sponsor. She also closed with a 66.

Rookie Paula Reto was third at 14 under after a 73.
