Longwood, FL (SportsNetwork.com) - Kendall Dye fired a 6-under 65 on Monday and she rallied to win the IOA Golf Classic.

Dye ended 54 holes at 11-under-par 202 at Alaqua Country Club. This was her first win on the Symetra Tour.

Second-round leader Hannah Yun closed with an even-par 71 to end alone in second at minus-8. Katelyn Sepmoree tripped to a 1-over 72 and finished third at 6-under 207. Reilley Rankin grabbed fourth at 5-under 208 after closing with a 1-under 70.

Dye birdied the second, but gave that shot right back as she bogeyed the par-5 third. She ran off six straight pars from the third.

Around the turn, she flew into the lead. Dye birdied three of the first four holes on the back nine to join Yun atop the leaderboard. After a par on No. 14, Dye birdied the par-3 15th and followed with an eagle on the 16th. With a 3-stroke lead, Dye parred the final two holes to seal the win.

There was a lengthy weather delay on Saturday that forced the afternoon wave to play their second rounds on Sunday, which in turn pushed the final round into Monday.
