Queensland, Australia (SportsNetwork.com) - Cheyenne Woods carded a 4-under 69 on Sunday to earn a two-stroke victory at the Volvik RACV Ladies Masters.

Woods claimed her first career victory on the Ladies European Tour at 16- under-par 276.

"This is a huge accomplishment for me," said Woods. "I'm just really proud with how I played this week and followed through all four days and finished strong."

Seventeen-year-old amateur Minjee Lee also shot 69 at RACV Royal Pines Resort to finish in second place at 14-under 278, while Camilla Lennarth (70) and Stacy Lee Bregman (72) shared third at minus-12.

Woods entered the day with a one-shot lead and quickly added to that advantage with a birdie at the first.

She gave that shot back with a bogey at the fourth, which allowed Lee to grab a share of the lead with three straight birdies from the sixth.

Woods, however, regained the lead for good with a birdie at the ninth and closed with gains at the 12th, 15th and 18th to finish off the victory.
